D-backs need 'exorcism' after franchise-worst start

PHOENIX -- If there were one thing the Diamondbacks couldn't afford to let go to waste Wednesday afternoon it was a quality outing from its scuffling starting rotation. While Brandon McCarthy's performance fell one out shy of an official "quality start," it was the exact kind of effort the D-backs needed from him -- the kind that could have helped them avoid a sweep...

Diamondbacks Slow Start

(Courtesy of sfgate.com) Off to their worst start in the teams’ 16 year history, the Arizona Diamondbacks have had a difficult time getting things going thus far this season. Paul Goldschmidt has carried the bulk of the load offensively, while newly acquired outfielder Mark Trumbo has added some power to the lineup. The D-backs are struggling all-around through the first 17 games...

Keith Hernandez ogles busty female fan wrapping mouth around huge hot dog (video)

With the game well in hand and little game-wise to discuss, Keith Hernandez went into full horndogger mode when SNY cameras captured a rather busty woman engorging on a hot dog during Tuesday night’s coverage of the New York Mets-Arizona Diamondbacks game. The Mets were up 9-0 in the 5th inning when a roving camera […] The post Keith Hernandez ogles busty female fan wrapping...

Kevin Towers may loose his Powers

Kevin Towers speaks at a Diamondbacks press conference (photo courtesy of bleacherreport.com)   His contract may have been extended to stay beyond 2014, but after a very shaky start to a season in which two key pitchers Patrick Corbin, and David Hernandez were lost due to season ending elbow surgery, (Tommy John Surgery)  it does not bode well for Arizona Diamondbacks general...

Archie Bradley’s agent calls out Diamondbacks for not calling up Bradley

(Rick Scuteri/USA Today Sports)   Kevin Towers has stated that he doesn’t want Archie Bradley to be thrown into a situation where he is viewed as the savior of the rotation. Given the D-backs starting rotation’s woes over the beginning of the season, there isn’t much doubt that Bradley, the Diamondbacks’ top prospect, would be viewed as a savior. Apparently, Bradley’s...

Reno Aces’ SP Archie Bradley Passed On By Diamondbacks

It has been a very odd couple of days for Arizona Diamondback’s minor league phenom Archie Bradley. Just last Friday he had left his wallet on the plane during a trip to Tucson, Arizona from Reno, Nevada as he was giddy about getting prime seats for the flight, or in his words, “I got lucky on the plane and actually got a big seat.  I put it (the wallet) in the pouch in front...

Changes on mound, in lineup don't change result for D-backs

PHOENIX -- Miguel Montero moved into the cleanup spot Monday for the first time this season, and it went well. Montero had three hits and a sacrifice fly and drove in all three of the Diamondbacks' runs. Yet not even a new No. 4 hitter and new/old face in the starting rotation, Josh Collmenter, could shake the D-backs from their early-season skid in a 7-3 loss to the Mets at...

That’s … weird: Yasiel Puig, Hyun-Jin Ryu engage in dugout tickle fight (video)

Before the Los Angeles Dodgers squared off against the rival Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday, teammates Yasiel Puig and Hyun-Jin Ryu tried to keep the mood loosey-goosey in the dugout by engaging in a tickle fight, of all things. It’s rare to see two grown ass men tickle each other, but I suppose that’s what makes […] The post That’s … weird: Yasiel Puig, Hyun-Jin Ryu engage...

Josh Collmenter will replace Randall Delgado the next turn through, making his first start since 2012 against the New York Mets on Monday.

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. We don’t want to panic, we don’t want the players to think we’re panicking. But to me, if things don’t get better,...
