MINNEAPOLIS -- Every time Jason Kubel steps into the batter's box at Target Field, a familiar sound echoes through the ballpark. "Kuuuuubes!" the Twins fans bellow as the left-handed outfielder takes his cuts.

Jason Kubel's doomed to fail tenure in Arizona is over

When the Diamondbacks signed Jason Kubel for two years and $16 million prior to the 2012 season, we laughed.

New D-back Kubel looks forward to Chase Field

PHOENIX The seed was planted here last May, when Jason Kubel knocked the ball around Chase Field with impunity, hitting for the cycle in Minnesotas three-game series. The Twins were swept, but Kubel was kind of swept away. Pretty nice place, he told his agent, Joel Wolfe. I like the way the ball comes off my bat. Obviously a very talented young team. I told Joel then that this...
