Ketel’s New (Old) Trick: Getting On Base

The Diamondbacks found themselves thin in the middle infield a few weeks back. So thin, in fact, that they turned to Adam Rosales to save the day. If that’s not a sign of trouble, I don’t know what is. True, Rosales can hit some left-handed pitching, something that’s given the club trouble this season. But it’s not Rosales holding down …

“Big Z” was a big fan of Jon Lester’s power display on Tuesday.Lester went deep in the bottom of the third inning of the Chicago Cubs’ game against the Arizona Diamondbacks for his first career home run. The blast was enough to get Carlos Zambrano to jump out of his chair and flex: Zambrano pitched 11 seasons for the Cubs, so he was probably pleased not just about seeing...

Why J.D. Martinez is just what the Diamondbacks needed

The Arizona Diamondbacks are 54-39, but find themselves 10.5 games back in the NL West. That’s because as of Tuesday night, the Los Angeles Dodgers are winners of 10 in a row and 30 of their previous 34. And before Arizona’s 11-2 thrashing of the Cincinnati Reds, they had lost eight of nine. In six of those, Arizona would fail to muster more than three runs. Yet for the time...

Arizona Diamondbacks Get Major Upgrade in J.D. Martinez

When it comes to making moves for pending free agents at the trade deadline, it’s hard to say that any pure rental is going to be a bargain. In recent seasons, the most successful trade for a soon-to-be free agent is probably the New York Mets’ acquisition of Yoenis Cespedes from the Detroit Tigers two years ago. Cespedes caught fire over the last two months of the season, putting...

Credit and Blame in Constructing the Diamondbacks

The Arizona Diamondbacks are a playoff team. They probably aren’t a division-winning team, with the Los Angeles Dodgers surging ahead, but sitting roughly 10 games clear in the current Wild Card standings — or around six if you believe the Chicago Cubs will overtake the Milwaukee Brewers at some point — the team has about a 90% shot to make the playoffs. Given their place in...
