It's conceivable that, after today, the Diamondbacks' record could be tied with the Baltimore Orioles. Yep, the same Orioles that went 2-16 to start the season: if we lose for the fifth straight time today, and Baltimore wins, we'll both be at 57-88. The key difference is, the Orioles have responded to their new manager, going 24-15 since Buck Showalter took over, while the Diamondbacks' record after Gibson arrived is now barely distinguishable from what was posted under Hinch. Updating the numbers from yesterday, we need to go 6-12 to avoid a hundred losses, or 13-5 to match last season.

More changes being rung by Gibson, with Kelly Johnson, Stephen Drew and Miguel Montero getting the day off, with a left-hander starting for Cincinnati. It promises to be quite a good pitching duel, between promising young starters - let's hope Hudson can avoid the issues which plagued Barry Enright yesterday, and do a better job of keeping the ball in the park. It's a Spranktonrecap this evening, with me and Mrs. S heading off to Mesa for EXW, though the early start means it'll likely be over [one way or another] by the time we get there around 6:30pm.
