Arizona Diamondbacks: October confidence poll

Arizona Diamondbacks: October confidence poll

Photo by Christian Petersen/ And the season draws to a close... September results August was a very good month for the D-backs. They won 16 games, a number of victories last surpassed over four years ago, in June 2018, and the 16-12 record was Arizona’s best win percentage in three seasons, since August 2019. Zac Gallen got started on a scoreless streak that would eventually set a franchise record, Merrill Kelly was also undefeated, and top prospect Corbin Carroll made his major-league debut. Yeah, all told this was certainly one the more enjoyable months to be a...

Diamondbacks 8, San Francisco 4: Giant Killers

Photo by Thearon W. Henderson/ A last strong start by Drey Jameson ends the Giants’ increasingly tenuous postseason hopes As the 2022 baseball season winds down, there becomes increasingly little to root for, especially for a team that was well out of playoff contention before this afternoon’s first pitch. To a very large extent I am watching now to get a few more good looks at the young players we’re going to be building our next contending team around. Additionally, with five games left, I’m watching to see how effective we can be as spoilers for other...

D(avid)-Back kills the Giant. | Photo by Rischgitz/ Time to overtake the Giants. September is a “in your face” month for the Diamondbacks. Last season we had a feeling of “let’s wrap this up as soon as possible” in the month of September and although the feeling in this month of September isn’t comparable to that at all, some kind of a “let’s wrap it up” is slipping into me. It is hard to not have some feeling of disappointment, realising that the Diamondbacks have been outplayed by their (better) opponents these final weeks. The last series win was...

Your Random D-Back: Casey Daigle

The “husband of” had the worst starting pitching debut in Diamondbacks’ history. Mines + French = sulphur. Every now and then I take a dive into my family tree. It is fun to do, but a lot of work. Dutch ancestry is very well documented (it is also one of the reasons why the Germans were able to identify and transport that many Dutch Jews to the extermination camps) and online you can find lots of information on Dutch ancestors. That is one of the reasons how I found out that part of my mother’s family were coal mine workers, in the south of the country, where my mother...

Snake Bytes 9/29: Winning Product

Erik Williams-USA TODAY Sports Everything went right for AZ in an epic battle between Gallen and Verlander What a game and what a win. One of the most entertaining D-backs games witnessed in 2022. Gallen v Verlander. Torey and Rojas ejected. A tie-game through 9 innings. A huge D-backs 3 run top of the 10th. A D-backs bullpen that sent out 3 relievers, giving up just 1 hit, 2 walks and allowing no runs. Melancon???? For the Save???? My God. What a game.

Game #156: Diamondbacks 5 @ Astros 2 (10)

72 BABY! We EARNED this milestone. Tonight is the night! It’s Gallen versus Verlander! This is the game of the seasons. How can it not be? THE pitcher of the retiring generation against a contender for THE pitcher of the upcoming generation? I wanna see every pitch! There are offenses too. But do I really need to discuss those? Ours is not great. Houston’s is rather excellent. Even without the trash cans so many still seem deadset on bringing up any time Space City is mentioned. Not only is this a potentially excellent pitching duel waiting to happen, this could also be...
