SnakeBytes, 7/25: Bum's Rush Edition

Another day, another loss. What are the odds? I shrug and move on. Here are the details of last night's game - Eugenio Velez might find these links particularly helpful - and after the jump, more rumblings on the Dan Haren deal, the Hall of Fame, and the release of another ex-Diamondback. How many is that now this season?

  • [AZCentral] Diamondbacks routed by Giants at home - "We had something going there for a few days, and we kind of lost the momentum," first baseman Adam LaRoche said. "A few plays here and there, some baserunning mistakes, some guys left on base, you name it. We seem to find a way to give up more and not score as many."
  • [] D-backs held in check by Giants - "It's a brutal game sometimes, and we have to try and push through it," said interim skipper Kirk Gibson, holding out hope for a 4-3 record the past week at Chase Field. "We have a tough task with Lincecum tomorrow. We'll try to get one out of this [series] and have a [winning] homestand. It could have been better."
  • [Yahoo! Sports] Velez carried off during SF's 10-4 win - "The prognosis is good. Bochy said Velez never lost consciousness, though wasn’t real responsive after first being struck, and CT scans were negative. Velez was talking at the hospital, where he’s expected to spend the night for further tests." I'm truly glad to hear that.

Team News and Notes [non-Haren]

  • [FoxSportsArizona] Kennedy's confidence reinforced - "I have really enjoyed being able to throw every five, six days. I’ve enjoyed being given the opportunity and capitalizing on it... I felt like I didn’t capitalize it with the Yankees the first time and was yet to prove it. This year I feel like I go out and try to stay consistent as possible."
  • [] Montero gets extra rest before road trip - "The skipper explained that Montero, who caught 23 innings total between Wednesday and Thursday, would be counted on heavily during the club's upcoming six-game trip, which begins Tuesday."
  • [AZCentral] Arizona Diamondbacks' pitching staff works on fielding - "While it's hard not to correlate the extra work with Friday's poor fielding performance, Gibson said there wasn't necessarily a connection. "We're getting ready to go on the road, so if you don't do it now, when are we going to do it?" Yeah... Sure...
  • [The D-blog] Getting to Know Jerry Dipoto - This is the entire Q&A with D-backs Interim General Manager Jerry Dipoto, an abridged version of which runs in the current issue of D-backs Insider. Interesting stuff on our zombie GM. I'm not kidding - in the interview, he talks about his heart stopping in 1998 as the result of an IV reaction.
