The Los Angeles Angels have hit a bit of a rough patch as...

Gold standard? NL managers know

PHOENIX -- Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt is not one to toot his own horn. It is set on permanent mute. And despite Goldschmidt's remarkable numbers this season and last, he still does not seem to have the national cachet that a two-time All-Star and one of the rising stars of his generation deserves. So it's a good thing the National League managers are there...

A Point in Defense of Tony La Russa

One thing we know almost for certain: the Diamondbacks hit Andrew McCutchen intentionally, as revenge for the Pirates knocking out Paul Goldschmidt. One thing people believe, that might or might not be true: McCutchen’s rib injury is related to the beanball.

Kirk Gibson and a history of cowardice

The Arizona Diamondbacks aren’t the only team to hit batters intentionally. They are, however, the only team whose GM publicly decreed before the season even started that they will retaliate, and any pitchers on the roster not willing to “protect” teammates won’t be on the roster very long. So when something like what happened on Saturday night takes place, it’s going to...
