(Photo courtesy of the @Dbacks official Twitter account.)   After falling to 2-7 to open up their 2014 season, it’s a good time to remind the Diamondbacks and their fans that a Major League Baseball season is a marathon, not a sprint. To say that there’s time to turn their fortunes around would be an understatement, with 153 games left on the schedule. However, if the D-backs...

Late-Inning Heroics From Nix, Schierholtz Cap 3-2 Victory.

Rockies Analyst Bonanza Column

Colorado’s season has been beyond disappointing but they go to New York, sweep a four-game series from the Mets and allow a total of five runs. That really happened. Now, the Mets are hardly contenders but they are far closer to .500 than the Rockies so this is an accomplishment, especially the pitching dominance. Five Colorado pitchers combined to shut out the Mets on Thursday...

Young Jr. play continues to be highlight

Mired in a terrible season the Rockies sweep the Brewers at Coors. Having Eric Young Jr. playing at a dream-like level doesn't hurt. Young Jr. homered again, finished with two hits, extending his stellar work at the plate lately (22-for-46 for a .478 average). He doesn't have to and can't remain this hot the rest of the season but the more he shows...
