PHOENIX -- Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson insists he hasn't been surprised -- even pleasantly -- by young left-hander Patrick Corbin's historic start. We won't call Gibson dishonest, but it's hard to imagine that anyone saw this coming.
Heck, even Corbin didn't expect to be this good through seven starts.

LOS ANGELES -- Heath Bell believes closers are born, not made, and he is back in that role after an elbow injury forced J.J. Putz to the disabled list Wednesday. It is not how Bell would have chosen to return to the ninth inning, but he does like the fit.
I just thrive in it, Bell said.

The “Harlem Shake” is what all the kids are doing these days, and the Arizona Diamondbacks are getting in on the fun now.
Viral videos have been popping up all over the Internet, as the web’s newest meme is to recreate a few YouTube videos that have just blown up in the last week or two.
Ironically, none of them ever feature anyone actually doing the Harlem Shake.
He wouldn't, would he?
Oh wait, it's Gibson? Never mind. Kirk Gibson totally would.
The undertaker of understatement, the man who brought us the instantly quotable line "I'm not out here to win a beauty contest" is at it again.

Kirk Gibson's busy. He's got a third-place Arizona Diamondbacks team to manage and a locker room full of 25 players to keep happy. But family comes first, right? Wrong. At least, when it comes to graduating high school. Gibson skipped his son's graduation ceremony in Michigan on Thursday night, but he didn't seem all too bothered by that. "You're supposed...
POPS HAD CIRCUMSTANCES
Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson was busy and missed his son's graduation. He gave a very interesting explanation for why.
You know what I want to hear when the Cardinals leave a series?"We got out-executed the whole series," manager Kirk Gibson said.
