And that's it. 167 games are in the books, and I don't quite know what I am going to do with myself now, having lived, breathed, ate and slept with the Diamondbacks [okay, not quite the last, but you know what I mean...]. It has been a fabulous ride, and I'm sorry it had to come to an end - but even winning the World Series, that would still be true. This is the last regularly-scheduled SnakeBytes, but I'm sure kishi will brush the dust off them now and again as we go through the off-season. Many thanks to him for his sterling efforts in keeping us informed of a wonderful year.

Now, when does Spring Training start?

And towards 2012...

  • [Daily Journal] Despite bitter finish, future bright for young Diamondbacks - "I'll tell you what, it's a great group of guys," Kevin Towers said. "We talked about there's always next year and next year will be better. I don't know how it could be better. There were so many exciting wins and come-from-behind wins. Gibby and his staff, the guys grinded all year long. Hopefully this experience will be good and we're in the same position next year, and next year we'll be able to get it done, and be where the Brewers are right now."
  • [FSAZ] D-backs down now, but future looks bright - "There will be changes before spring training opens. There always are. But one offseason priority should be to make sure the talented coaching staff stays together."
  • [MLB.com] Noble in defeat, D-backs make strides - "Gibson's work should be rewarded with the NL Manager of the Year Award. Beyond that, there is little question that the 2011 D-backs have built a foundation for future success. The large strides that they took this season could be just the beginning of that success."
