Carson Kelly

Carson Kelly has mastered the mental game. | Photo by Thearon W. Henderson/ Last week in my Pop Pilates class, a woman wore unusual pants – each leg said, “Just do it!” I noticed! I almost thanked her for choosing to exercise directly in front of me while wearing those pants, but my better judgement told me that perhaps she would misunderstand my enthusiasm. What about my prediction that the Diamondbacks would score 6 runs in a game against the Cubs? My prediction was optimistic despite a disappointing season, and knowing failure was possible I just did it. Being...

FOCO release limited edition Carson Kelly bobblehead

FOCO release limited edition Carson Kelly bobblehead

It’s a good week for Carson Kelly fans, and not just because he made his return to the Diamondbacks line-up. As well as the City Connect bobblehead which FOCO is coming out with (and which Makakilo won in our contest a week ago), there is now an even more limited edition Kelly bobblehead available. For this morning, FOCO released the latest in their Arizona Diamondbacks Ambassador D-Back Bobblehead series. Turns out Carson is one of their ambassadors for the 2021 MLB Season and played a crucial role in the development of this bobblehead. Below is Kelly with the piece in...

The Wonder of Positive Streaks

The Wonder of Positive Streaks

Carson Kelly hit a homer during the second batting streak. | Photo by Christian Petersen/ More wonderful than losing streaks. This season, much was written about losing streaks: 13 & 17 consecutive-game losing streaks, a 24 road-game losing streak, and a 15 consecutive-series losing streak. I tip my hat to Jim McLennan for pointing out that the latest 45 times that the Diamondbacks failed to score 5 runs (a taco-less game), they lost. These streaks added a sense of wonder to negativity. Enough! Positive streaks are more wonderful! The hard part was finding them,...

Who should be the D-backs’ All-Star representative?

Who should be the D-backs’ All-Star representative?

Photo by Norm Hall/ In advance of this afternoon’s announcement, let’s review the options To be perfectly honest, by any objective measurement, the team really does not deserve anyone to play in the All-Star Game at Coors Field in a couple of weeks. If we use bWAR as a metric, the team’s best position player is Carson Kelly, who ranks a mere 35th in the National League with 1.8 bWAR. He is a) injured, and b) is only tied for fourth among NL catchers, behind Wllson Contreras, Omar Narvaez and Buster Posey. For pitchers, the situation is equally dire, if not more...
