SnakeBytes, 7/2: Night of Long Knives Edition

Um, so.  How did everyone enjoy the DBack's day off?  Relaxing, I hope?  In case you haven't heard about the upheaval in the Diamondbacks organization, then, uh, you should probably scroll down and read the two stories below, and the assorted comments.  Go ahead, we'll be here when you get back.

Back?  Good.  The season continues, though, so we'll start as tradition dictates, with a look at the upcoming series:

Series Previews:

After the jump: a lot of reactions to the big move.

I mean that.  A lot.

DBacks News:

Lot of reactions, and they mostly seem to go the same way.  Why was Byrnes gone, too?  I think we'll regret this move, a lot.

Around Sports:

Your Daily Strasburg:

Okay, new period for the Diamondbacks starts today.  Kirk Gibson, Jerry DiPoto, show us what you got.
