Fantasy Baseball Season Recap & Rankings for Next Year

Another crazy and enthralling baseball regular season is in the books and, while it’s tempting to forget fantasy at this point and get swept up in the excitement of the playoffs (especially after Tuesday night’s spectacular Wild Card game), it’s important to take at least one look back at the season that was while it’s still fresh in your mind to get a start on preparation...

D-backs set cautious timetable for Corbin's return

PHOENIX -- The Diamondbacks admire the way All Star Stephen Strasburg has recovered from his 2010 Tommy John surgery. The path he followed is something else again. It is a road they do not plan to duplicate with Patrick Corbin, their All-Star.  Thirteen months after Strasburg underwent Tommy John surgery, he returned to the major leagues in September 2011. It went well, as far as...

D-backs will still spend the bucks

PHOENIX -- Lest anyone fret that the Diamondbacks view their franchise-record $115 million payroll this season as a one-year fling, president/CEO Derrick Hall has a simple message. Don't. The D-backs are fully committed to another nine-figure payroll in 2015, Hall said as he helped son Logan move into his dormitory at Pepperdine University on Tuesday morning. It is the new normal...

Hudson, D-backs still eyeing Sept. return

PHOENIX -- For Daniel Hudson, the biggest hurdle this time was to forget the last time. He appears to have cleared it with ease. Hudson took his latest step in the rest of his pitching life Tuesday, starting and throwing one inning for the D-backs' affiliate in the Arizona League. It was a long time coming, 426 days since this last appearance in a competitive situation, and, he admitted...

What went wrong? D-backs' woes directly tied to pitching

PHOENIX -- It was a lazy mid-March afternoon on the west side of town, mild and sunny. Birds caught the wind, made leisurely loops on a day that seemed expressly assembled to lighten the drudgery of spring training. Until the sky fell. After his 91st pitch in his final tune-up, Patrick Corbin summoned Diamondbacks coaches and medical personnel to the mound at Goodyear Ballpark. His...

Diamondbacks Rumors: Arizona willing to listen on nearly everyone

Many people, including myself, thought the National League West was going to be a three horse race between the Los Angeles Dodgers, San Francisco Giants, and Arizona Diamondbacks. All three teams had what it took to be playoff contenders or so we thought.The Giants and Dodgers have held up their end up of the bargain, but we cannot say the same thing about the Diamondbacks. They...

Pitching (as usual) tops draft priorities for D-backs

PHOENIX -- If the third week of March demonstrated nothing else, it ice-picked home the point that you can never have enough pitching. You can appear to have enough pitching. You can think you have enough pitching. But you never do. The season-surgeries to Patrick Corbin and David Hernandez drove that home. So pitching, as usual, will be high on the Diamondbacks' agenda when the...

Desert Disaster: Arizona Diamondbacks’ Woes Continue

As of today, the worst team in the National League is the Chicago Cubs. The second-worst, however, is a bit of surprise. It’s the Arizona Diamondbacks.  The Diamondbacks finished 2013’s campaign in second place, with a perfectly mediocre record of 81-81. They were 11 games behind the division winning Los Angeles Dodgers.  Diamondback fans had some reason to hope for a stronger...

Jam It or Cram It: A Farewell to Arms

In between winning the Nobel Prize, shots of rum, bagging 240-pound marlins and banging 140-pound broads, Ernest Hemingway wrote: "The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially."  Did Papa play fantasy baseball? My pitching staff was...
