NICK AHMED RUMORS & GOSSIP

Questionable judgement call costs the Pirates

The Pittsburgh Pirates lost a game in extra innings yesterday when a double play was broken up when Nick Ahmed threw up his arm and deflected a throw that might have been an inning ending double play. In the judgement of the umpires, the runner did not intentionally interfere with the play. I find that ruling a bit spurious.Here is the play:Your browser does not support iframes...

Show of hand: All but Pirates like Ahmed's slide

PHOENIX -- Nick Ahmed had two responsibilities on the final play Sunday -- stay at first base long enough not to get picked off and get to second quickly enough to disrupt a potential double play. He was 2-for-2. Ahmed helped the D-backs to the weirdest walk-off in franchise history when he was struck on the left forearm with a throw to break up a double play as Tuffy Gosewisch scored...

WATCH: Diamondbacks beat Pirates on controversial call

Controversy was afoot once again in Phoenix on Sunday, and this isn’t a good look for second base umpire Lance Barrett. Andy Marte grounded into what looked like an inning-ending double play, but Jayson Nix’s throw hit Nick Ahmed in the hands as Ahmed slid into second. Barrett ruled the contact incidental instead of intentional, allowing the game-winning run to score. When you...

PHOENIX -- Arizona runner Nick Ahmed put his arms up as he slid into second base and deflected a potential double play relay in the 10th inning Sunday, giving the Diamondbacks a 3-2 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Pirates lingered on the field to argue with the umpires, to no avail. There was no video review of the final play. With runners at the corners and one out, Andy Marte...

The Arizona Diamondbacks: Nick Ahmed edition

The Arizona Diamondbacks are in a situation that nobody envies. They are one of the worst teams in the major leagues with very few desirable trade assets. Fortunately there is one position where the Diamondbacks have a surplus of trade assets. They have three young shortstops that scouts have been drooling over. Two of them, Didi Gregorious and Chris Owings, have a major league resume...

SAN DIEGO -- The Diamondbacks are learning more about their future every day, probably the best way to play it since the present has not been much fun.
