SnakeBytes, 5/25: Beast Hunting Season Opens Edition

MOAR PLZ JUP. KTHXBAI

Let's hope the results are every bit as satisfying as the last time the Brewers were in town. Goldschmidt grand-slam? Don't mind if I do.

Team news

  • [AZ Central] Diamondbacks' Willie Bloomquist up and running - "Over the past two seasons, the Diamondbacks consider Bloomquist one of their more valuable players." Hmm. fWAR appears to differ, ranking him below Daniel Hudson - oh, and that's on offense... There seems to be a propaganda campaign for Willie of late, though he has been playing a lot better.
  • [dbacks.com] Inbox: Too late to make a run? - Steve opens his mailbag and discussed Miggy's contract. "I think the fact that the D-backs talked about reopening them is a good sign. They certainly must have an idea of what it would take financially to get a deal done, and they may be willing to raise their offer from where it stood this spring."
  • [AZ Central] Productive Overbay has been key in support for Diamondbacks - "Don't get me wrong," he said. "You want to play. But I still think our best lineup is with (Goldschmidt) out there." That line of thinking has become more evident as Goldschmidt has begun to emerge from a slow start at the plate. In the past week, Goldschmidt is 8 for 20 with three doubles and four walks.
  • [FSAZ} D-backs' Kennedy: Same guy, different results - Pitching coach Charles Nagy: "He’s the same guy. Just trying to find his rhythm right now, get in the swing of things. You go out there, and sometimes you try to do too much. You give up a hit and try to stop things from happening, and things kind of snowball. He has some bad games this year, and he had some bad games last year, too. I’m not really concerned too much."
