D-backs' Ziegler 1 of 6 finalists for Act of Valor Award

PHOENIX -- On the mound, Bob Feller and Brad Ziegler could not look less alike. Feller's overhand fastball was clocked the high-90 mph range, and he hit 107.6 mph in a game at Washington's old Griffith Park in 1946. Submariner Ziegler gets the same clumsy swings utilizing off-speed pitches in the mid-70s. In their commitment to service, however, they could not be more alike...

D-backs' pen-manship gets high marks

PHOENIX -- The Diamondbacks received as many feelers on established relievers Addison Reed, Brad Ziegler and Oliver Perez before Thursday's nonwaiver trade deadline as they did on the players they traded, but that is as far as it got. And as far as it is likely to go. No reliever is untouchable, but the D-backs will consider trading from the group only if the other side is willing...

Ziegler unfazed by trade talk, line drive to ribs

PHOENIX -- Brad Ziegler had good cause to be distracted Wednesday. His name has been mentioned in trade talks this week, although there seems little chance he is going anywhere. And after being struck in the rib cage by a line drive Tuesday, he was unable to pitch in the final game of the Detroit series. He was still in some pain, but at least he could chuckle about it. He knows...

2 Roster Moves I Actually Made, Week 11

As you prepare for week 12 I have two players for you that not only lend themselves to a gluttonous source of food references, but who are worthy of being picked up in deeper leagues with perhaps even a better-than-puncher’s chance to be very helpful tools in certain 12-team leagues. As always, these are both moves I actually made and I wholeheartedly believe they have put my team...
