So, am I the only one slightly confused by this picture? Laughing Gibby just isn't how I envision him most of the time.
The Diamondbacks have been winning most of their games lately, but let's be honest- they haven't exactly been playing good baseball the whole time. We'll need to see some of these mistakes disappear soon.
- [DBacks.com] Snakes twice bitten late against Rockies - More missed opportunities, and mistakes that we couldn't get out of. It'll happen, but you just don't want to see it happen too often.
- [FS Arizona] D-backs can't hold off Rockies in slugfest loss - Who got the win? Rex Brothers? I'm pretty sure it's unfair for the Rockies to put a pair of brothers on the mound and have them both pitch at once. C'mon, Selig, let's do something about this.
- [AZ Central] Arizona Diamondbacks miscues costly in sloppy defeat - A missed line drive, a bad pick off move, runners stranded in scoring position. It all adds up.
- [The Denver Post] Rockies beat Arizona on Helton's double in eighth - If nothing else, though, good to see Juan Nicasio back on the mound. He wasn't very effective, but after an injury like the one he suffered last year, any outing is one to celebrate.
- [AZ Central] Arizona Diamondbacks' Justin Upton bothered by bum thumb - Okay, okay, not going to get too concerned, just keep it calm...
- [DBacks.com] D-backs hitting coach Don Baylor followed Jackie Robinson's lead in Texas - Don Baylor has been a favorite of mine for years, but I never really knew much about his life outside baseball. This was really interesting to find out about.
- [FanGraphs] Willie Bloomquist, Leadoff Hitter - Should Willie be our leadoff hitter? FanGraphs is not optimistic. But if he isn't, who should take his spot?
- [Bird Droppings] Friday the 13th... - Minor league batters faced their own horror in the form of Archie Bradley and Andrew Chafin.
- [Dallas Morning News] C.J. Wilson: Rangers "wasted" his time - And then he signed with their division rival? Well, that'll make some of his starts more interesting.
- [MLBTradeRumors.com] Reds Release Clay Zavada - Bad news for the Mustache. Though I'm always surprised when I remember he only pitched for us in 2009. I feel like he should have spent more time with the DBacks.
- [HardballTalk] Josh Thole had a pretty embarrassing brain cramp last night - Not often you'll see a sacrifice bunt turn into a double play, but...
- [Big League Stew] Kelly Shoppach steals his first base with quite possibly the worst slide ever - So that's why catchers don't usually steal.
