Snake Bytes: 8/4 - Giant Killers

Photo by Norm Hall/ The Diamondbacks pieced together an unlikely performance last night, beating the team with the best record in baseball. Diamondbacks News San Francisco 1, Arizona 3 Madison Bumgarner had an increasingly rare good performance. The veterans contributed just enough on offense to support him, providing a still uncommon taco-less win. The defense showed up big (seriously), rather than kicking the ball around after letting it drop in. Then the bullpen used a mix of old and new to toss a pair of zeroes on the board and secure the victory. It’s almost as...

Diamondbacks 3, San Francisco 1: One Crooked Number

Diamondbacks 3, San Francisco 1: One Crooked Number

Mason Saunders did the business. | Photo by Norm Hall/ Sometimes that’s enough, especially beyond a stellar performance by Madison Bumgarner. After two weeks in a row of experiencing starts by the apparently somewhat broken Taylor Widener, I was really glad to draw a different starting pitcher, and was pleased and curious and looking forward to having a close look at the apparently rejuvenated Madison Bumgarner. I am on record as never having been a fan of the Bumgarner signing, and while I’m not at all pleased with the amount of $$$$$$$$$$$ we’re paying him,...

Diamondbacks 6, Pirates 4 - How Sweep it is

Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports There’s a new hot team in town, as the D-backs took a 3-game winning streak and series sweep on the line in the matinee game against the Pirates. With most Phoenix/Arizona fans looking for solace as the Suns' legendary playoff run came to a brutal end, the Arizona Diamondbacks are finally rounding into form and welcoming all fans looking to escape. Just don’t look at their overall record. Madison Bumgarner was making his second start since the long 6-week break from shoulder inflammation. His first start against the Cubs was great,...

Snake Bytes: 7/17 - Changing, Staying the Same

Photo by Norm Hall/ The Diamondbacks began to shed the skin of the 2021 team, but they are still the same 2021 team. Diamondbacks News Chicago 5, Arizona 1 Madison Bumgarner’s return from the IL went about as well as could be hoped for. That didn’t change much for the Diamondbacks though. The offense still couldn’t score and the bullpen was unable to throw up three zeros on the scoreboard. Bumgarner’s Return Not Enough That Bumgarner allowed only two runs through six full innings of work, yet the Diamondbacks were unable to keep him from being hung with a loss...

Cubs 5, Diamondbacks 1: Picking up where they left off

Photo by Norm Hall/ The Offense and Bullpen Fail to Support Bumgarner’s Good Outing In what is known as “editorial privilege with extreme prejudice” we’ll begin tonight’s recap with the COTG, courtesy of GuruB : Ok, my work is done here. Just kidding Jim ! Madison Bumgarner took the mound tonight for the first time since June 2nd. After spending 44 days on the IL with a shoulder injury it was a highlight to see him come back and pitch well. He didn’t have his best fastball, seldom topping 90. But he located well on both sides of the plate,...

Series Preview #30: Cubs @ Diamondbacks

Photo by Norm Hall/ Madison Bumgarner Returns As recently as June 24th the Chicago Cubs were 42-33, tied for first place with the Milwaukee Brewers in the NL Central. This was surprising to many, as Fangraphs and some others projected them to be a sub .500 team, no better than 3rd place in the division. It turns out they were probably right. Since June 25th the Cubs lost 11 in a row, and 13 out of 15 to fall to 44-46, 8 games back of the Brewers. With no fewer than 18 potential free agents in 2022 the window of contention for this team has seemingly closed. As a...
