Most people felt the Arizona Diamondbacks gave up too much to acquire Shelby Miller from the Atlanta Braves over the winter, and the deal looks even worse now that Miller has been optioned to Triple-A.

Jake Lamb’s Revamped Swing Made Him an All-Star (Snub)

It’s important to note, considering the title of this post, that Jake Lamb is presently not a member of the National League All-Star team. It’s certainly not for lack of production.
