Diamondbacks read your mean tweets about their awful uniforms

Most people (myself included) think that the Arizona Diamondbacks’ new uniforms are pretty terrible. Let’s take a look at them (Note: These aren’t actual Diamondbacks players): Woof. And the pant leg for the home uniforms would make you think Paul Goldschmidt and company were in a horror movie: Well, the Diamondbacks are well aware that you probably hate their uniforms, and...

Where are all the guys the Diamondbacks traded?

It’s no secret that the Diamondbacks were one of the busiest teams of the offseason. They made some blockbuster moves to acquire rotation depth, most notably signing former Dodgers ace Zack Greinke. But Arizona did more than just sign big-name free agents. After drafting shortstop Dansby Swanson first overall in 2015, the team traded him, as […] Where are all the guys the Diamondbacks...

Zack Greinke unveiled baseball's most awkward base hit celebration

Zack Greinke is a straight-faced ace on the mound for the Arizona Diamondbacks. He doesn't often display emotion or show that he actually enjoys making millions for playing baseball, but he has his moments. Monday night was one of those rare instances where Greinke had some fun on the diamond, and it wasn't after striking out a batter. It came after he laced a single past the third...

Sweet Baby Ray …And The Top 100 Starting Pitchers, Week 4

So I'm watching Raiders of the Lost Ark with my dad and following Tanner Roark strike out 15 Saturday afternoon, and all primed to write my "Raiders of the Lost Roark" pitcher profile.

The Diamondbacks gave a 9-year-old the birthday surprise of a lifetime

The Arizona Diamondbacks staged an absolutely perfect birthday surprise for nine-year-old fan Micha Vickers. Micha's face was put on the scoreboard as the PA announcer gave him a shoutout, and he was thoroughly embarrassed as many 9-year-olds would be. Micha had no idea that his dad, an Air Force Tech Sargeant, was standing just behind him.Micha seemingly can't believe what he's...

What should we make of the Diamondbacks?

The Diamondbacks were baseball’s most entertaining team this winter by a long shot. The huge signings, the weird trades, the insane uniform redesign – everything they did made you take notice. It was the kind of offseason baseball writers dream about, where a team decides to throw everything they have against the wall and hope it all sticks. But would they be any good once the...

You Want The Lamb Souvlikey Or The Shish-Kabuy?

To understand Jake Lamb, I think it's important to go back to the 1964 Summer Olympics when his father's hero, Lambis Manthos, was competing for Greece in the 50 meter pistol shooting event.  Due to a clerical error, Lambis thought he was competing in the 50 centimeter pistol shooting event.  Lambis practiced shooting dinner plates from about 20 inches away.  At one point...

What’s Up With Greinke’s Slider?

Zack Greinke goes to the mound today after giving up 13 runs in his last three starts, something he didn’t do at all last year. So we’re all trying to diagnose him. He is, too. We couldn’t figure it out together, really. Sorry to spoil the ending. The slider is getting hit hard. Of his pitch types, it has the second-worst exit velocity so far this year, and it’s suffered...

WATCH: D-Backs’ Jake Lamb cranks 2-out, 2-strike HR to tie it in the 9th

It appeared the San Francisco Giants were going to come away with a 7-6 victory on Monday night at AT&T Park, until Jake Lamb changed that with one heroic swing for the Arizona Diamondbacks. With two outs in the top of the ninth, a 2-2 count, and the crowd on their feet, Lamb sent a Santiago Casilla offering high and deep into the San Francisco night. The ball stayed in the...

Are the Reeling Arizona Diamondbacks Already Done in the NL West?

While the season is barely a week old, the Arizona Diamondbacks may have found themselves on the short end of the race to the playoffs yet again. After a stagnant 2-5 start to the season, the D-backs are on a downward slope as they continue to slump while their division rivals continue to trend upwards. The failure of Arizona has been due mainly to a letdown with the starting pitching...

AJ Pollock’s elbow contains this plate and screws

After playing just 75 games in 2014, A.J. Pollock made up for lost time last year, putting together the best season of his career, which included an appearance in the all-star game. Unfortunately, Pollock will miss a substantial portion of this season due to a fractured elbow.

Arizona Diamondbacks Stumble Out of the Gate

The Arizona Diamondbacks spent the majority of the offseason revamping their roster. Add an ace pitcher, subtract a shortstop prospect, add another arm to the bullpen, and continue the equation until you get a World Series ring. At least that’s the plan, right? The moves that were made throughout the offseason sent a clear message that the D-Backs have every intention of contending...

Jake Lamb on Being a Gap-to-Gap Diamondback

Jake Lamb is off to a solid start in the production department. The left-handed-hitting third baseman homered in Arizona’s opener, and he doubled in game two. There’s more where that came from. Lamb slugged just .386 in 109 games with the Diamondbacks last year, but he did so as a young player with a foot injury. In three-plus seasons on the farm, he slashed .321/.408/.552. Lamb...
