Diamondbacks 1, Atlanta 6: (Don’t Fear) the Rattlle

Diamondbacks 1, Atlanta 6: (Don’t Fear) the Rattlle

h/t hippedyhopsguy on Twitter Yeah, we can’t even spell a two-syllable word right without technological intervention. We certainly weren’t gonna win this baseball game. SIGH So I believe I’ve noted on several occasions over the course of this year that writing about Diamondbacks games in 2021 has presented me with an interesting ongoing challenge: namely, to try to keep my interest and find something maybe insightful to take note of when writing about games that we were just about inevitably gonna lose. This was another one of those games, as it turned out, and I...

How High Will The Diamondbacks Bounce in 2022?

How High Will The Diamondbacks Bounce in 2022?

Torey Lovullo before the road series against the Mariners, which the Diamondbacks won. | Photo by Steph Chambers/ Although it’s not a sure thing, there are good reasons to expect the 2022 Diamondbacks to win more than 77 games. First, I tip my hat to Jack Sommers for activating my optimism. His most excellent piece showed that that in the last 52 years, when a team wins less than 35% it’s rare when they bounce above .500 in the next season. The 2021 Diamondbacks are a rare team, more rare than the 2004 Diamondbacks. The 2004 Diamondbacks had a 31.5% winning...

Photo by Norm Hall/ Hard to complain with an open-air Chase Field. Arizona Diamondbacks 4, Atlanta Braves 11 [D’backs.com] ‘It fell apart’: Mejía falters in home debut - Making his sixth career MLB start, Humberto Mejía took the mound at Chase Field for the first time on Monday night. The 24-year-old right-hander will hope to pitch here many more times, as he aims to secure a permanent spot in the D-backs’ rotation in the future. However, Mejía’s Arizona home debut didn’t go nearly as well as his previous Major League outings. But it was still a valuable...

Diamondbacks 4, Braves 11: Pleading the fifth

Photo by Norm Hall/ It was a fun game, for four innings. Record: 48-102. Pace: 52-110. Change on 2004: +1 With an off-day next Monday, this is my final scheduled recap of the year. I hoped the team might give me something warm and fluffy to take into the off-season, especially on what I think was the first game with the roof open since spring. After all, I've largely given up watching Diamondbacks games I don't have to recap: they're just not fun. While I will be at Chase over the last weekend, that's more likely to be a social event with a baseball game in the...

Photo by Todd Kirkland/ April 25th feels so long ago At 77-70 the Atlanta Braves are clinging to a two game lead over the Philadelphia Phillies in the NL East. It’s been an up and down season for the Braves. Languishing around .500 for the first first half of the season, they battled numerous injuries to their rotation and the loss of Marcel Ozuna due to a finger injury and then off field domestic abuse issuess. Then just before the all star break in what seemed like a devastating blow to their division chances, they lost Ronald Acuna Jr for the season with a torn...
