Where do the Diamondbacks go from here?

Nobody could ever accuse Kevin Towers of being anything less than bold. Few teams have been as interesting as the Arizona Diamondbacks over the last few years. Setting aside the quality of his moves, the sheer volume and often puzzling circumstances surrounding them garnered Arizona more headlines than such a middling team typically deserves. His […]

Tony Gwynn leaves behind quite the memories with several D-backs

PHOENIX -- Kevin Towers, of course, knows all of Tony Gwynn's numbers. He was there for many of the milestones. What made Gwynn special was the other stuff, the Ted Ansel stuff.  Towers, then the Padres general manager, invited his friend Ansel, a Pennsylvania golf pro, into a card game with Gwynn and others one night in Philadelphia and Ansel came away the big winner. Ansel arrived...

Paging Mr. Towers – Please call Triple-A Reno ASAP.

For a moment at least, I for once found myself agreeing with Arizona Diamondbacks’ GM Kevin Towers on something; on the morning radio show on Arizona Sports 98.7 with Doug and Wolf, Towers said of his team’s sluggish start, “We realize it’s April.

Diamondbacks Take a Two-Year Chance on ERA

Kevin Towers is a confident, talkative man. He’ll tell you what he’s thinking about, and he’ll tell you what he’s doing. There aren’t many anonymous leaks that come out of the Diamondbacks organization because Towers doesn’t exactly keep many secrets — even when he’s actively negotiating.

Diamondbacks rumors: High-profile free agent signing still possible, GM prepared to give up first-round pick

Although the Arizona Diamondbacks have yet to make any big moves this offseason, it seems as though GM Kevin Towers is still open to the possibility of landing a big name. After trading away Heath Bell to the Tampa Bay Rays as part of a three-team trade on Tuesday, Towers spoke to reporters, including Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic, on a conference call, in which he talked...
