Paul Goldschmidt Crushes 482-Foot Home Run Off John Lackey (Video)

Arizona Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt is a powerful man, and he put his strength on display Wednesday night. Goldschmidt absolutely crushed a pitch from St. Louis Cardinals pitcher John Lackey, and the ball landed deep in center field — 482 feet from home plate, to be exact. It’s the longest homer of Goldschmidt’s career and his 25th of the season. If you don’t...

Let’s Talk About Jabari Blash

Of the 338 Triple-A hitters who have recorded at least 200 plate appearances this season, only two have an isolated-power (ISO) mark north of .300. The first is Richie Shaffer, an interesting Rays prospect who spent some time in the big leagues this season. The second is a player by the name of Jabari Blash. No, that’s not a character from Harry Potter, or even an Edith Wharton...

Goldschmidt clubs longest HR of career

The Diamondbacks scored one run Wednesday night but what a glorious run it was. Paul Goldschmidt got an 0-1 fastball from Cardinals starter John Lackey and smashed it off a support beam to the left of the center-field video board in the first inning. MLB Statcast calculated the homer's true distance at 471 feet. ESPN's Home Run Tracker said it was a 482-foot blast. Either way, it...

Watch: Paul Goldschmidt hits 471-foot moonshot off John Lackey

Paul Goldschmidt had a resounding message for those who took note of his recent home run drought on Wednesday. Goldschmidt, who hit two home runs on Saturday to quiet the hoopla highlighting his home run drought for nearly a month, hammered down the nail in the coffin on such chatter on Wednesday with an awe-inspiring blast. In his first at-bat against Cardinals pitcher John Lackey...

Goldschmidt feels 'back on track' from slump after mechanical tweaks

Paul Goldschmidt is in the midst of an MVP-caliber season for the Arizona Diamondbacks, but he recently hit a snag at the plate, a lull that he hopes to have overcome by making a few mechanical alterations. While Goldschmidt continues to be one of the best hitters in all of baseball, he has recently encountered a hurdle in the batter's box. Although he still maintains an astronomical...

Paul Goldschmidt lined a double that got stuck in the wall

We see balls get stuck between the pads of the outfield wall every so often, but they usually get stuck after a bounce. On Tuesday night, Paul Goldschmidt hit a screamer of a line drive against the Cardinals that got stuck between the pads without even bouncing. That’s a ground rule double. Goldschmidt would score the Diamondbacks’ only run of the night later in the inning on...

Braves offense is still bad – but in a different way

In 2014, the Atlanta Braves offense was a horror show. For the year, they hit just .241/.305/.360. The club’s .296 wOBA was fourth-worst in baseball (ahead of just the Phillies, Reds, and Padres), and their 87 wRC+ was fifth-worst (ahead of those three aforementioned teams and the Arizona Diamondbacks). They scored just 573 runs, the second-lowest total in baseball. The main...

The Case for the Diamondbacks

The Postseason? Not this year. Well, not quite for the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Snakes are technically only five games back of first in the NL West, which some teams would kill for in their division (see Twins, Minnesota), but it seems highly unlikely they hop over the San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers. They’re also 10 games back of the Wild Card. But, on the bright...

D-backs miscues pile up in loss to Cardinals

PHOENIX -- Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said Jhoulys Chacin deserved Monday's start and Chacin backed up his manager. Chacin, in fact, deserved better. Chacin, called up from Triple-A Reno earlier in the day, limited the major league-leading Cardinals to six hits and three runs in 6 1/3 innings but was let down both by his defense and the D-backs situational hitting in a 5-3 loss...

D-backs on verge of putting themselves in pennant race

PHOENIX -- The Diamondbacks want to play meaningful games in September. How about August? On the heels of a four-game sweep of the Reds coupled with a five-game losing streak for the division-leading Dodgers, the D-backs on Monday were five games behind the Dodgers in the NL West. The D-backs still sit in third place -- 3 1/2 games behind the second-place Giants -- but could find...

Arizona Diamondbacks’ AJ Pollock is an MVP candidate

It takes awhile for Arizona Diamondbacks players to be recognized nationally. The team hasn’t performed well in recent years, and as a West Coast team most games are played while the rest of the country is sleeping. That’s why it’s such a surprise to see Paul Goldschmidt voted into the All-Star game two years in a row. He overcame the disadvantage of playing for the D...

Better late than never: D-backs enter NL West race as legitimate contenders

With their third-consecutive win on Sunday, the Arizona Diamondbacks leapt above the .500 mark for the first time since April 22, but more importantly pulled within five games of the division-leading Los Angeles Dodgers in the NL West standings. "I love the way we play," outfielder Ender Inciarte said. "We're a different team. When you see other teams, you don't see them hustling...

Fantasy Baseball Final: August 22nd

If You Only Read One Thing… Paul Goldschmidt continues his MVP caliber season for the Diamondbacks going 4/5 with two home runs, three runs scored, four RBI and a stolen base. Goldi is now at 20 steals on the year and nearing 100 runs batted in, not to mention he is hitting .331. What an incredible year for Goldi in 2015, but it’s been hiding in the shadows of the likes or...

So, Let’s talk about the NL MVP

Just as numerous National League clubs have come to and gone from contention, so have said clubs’ MVP candidates. You could say that with the Nationals having been in the race for some time, that Bryce Harper was the hands-down favorite to claim the prestigious NL award. Now that the Mets have leap-frogged Washington – and certainly aren’t indicatively looking to turn things...

Diamondbacks-Reds Preview

Chase Anderson's about-face from being one of the Arizona Diamondbacks' most consistent starters to their most unreliable resulted in an unforeseen demotion to the minors to work out his issues. That was the plan, anyway. An injury within the rotation has given Anderson a second chance, and he'll try to make the most of it as the visiting Diamondbacks seek a four-game sweep of the...
