SnakeBytes, 6/4: Afternoon Edition

Your random fact for the afternoon: today is the 525th anniversary of the settlement of the Roanoke colony.  If you recall your history, I think the relevance to the Diamondbacks is evident.  In the mean time, here are some stories to pass a Friday afternoon.  No game yesterday, so we can avoid reliving painful memories.  Plus, though we play the Rockies for the 728th time in the past two months today, at least it's in Phoenix so we don't have to worry about seeing Pope Dinger I.

Previews:

More stories, news from around the league, and rumors that Stephen Drew can transform into a white stag, after the jump.

Diamondbacks News:

Around Baseball:

And that Stephen Drew thing is an obvious lie that proves I only write these things to include obscure jokes that make me laugh.  But you probably knew that already, and I refuse to apologize for it.  I hope you have a good Friday, and go DBacks.
