SnakeBytes, 7/3: Independence Eve Edition

Ok, so last night didn't go QUITE as well as expected, did it. Still, onwards, ever onwards - and there certainly something to look forward to tonight, with the home debut of Trever Bauer. Think there might be some mention of this in today's link round-up? Could be... Also to be found within, the rotation for after the All-Star break, an unfortunate update from Milwaukee and the latest news - or, rather, non-news - on Daron Sutton. And if you were planning on picking up a ticket for tomorrow's game... Alternative plans may be needed..


Bauer Bauer Bauer, Bauer Bauer!
  • [FSAZ] Here to stay, Bauer ready for 'fun' home debut - "After a couple starts, the luster kind of wears off and you just become another pitcher," Bauer said. "And then it's 'The Diamondbacks won today' or 'They didn't win today' instead of 'The Diamondbacks won, but it was Trevor Bauer's first start or Trevor Bauer's first home start.' And that's really what it's all about."
  • [SBN Arizona] Trevor Bauer Ready To Make First Start At Home Bauer's groin has been something that has bothered him all year, but he doesn't plan to let it distract him. "I've dealt with it all season, it's been something that has nagged. I thought I had gotten rid of it and it kind of popped up again," Bauer said. "I haven't missed a start and it feels completely fine today, so I'll be ready to go."
  • [MLB] Bauer makes home debut against Padres - "It was good to get my feet wet [against the Braves], I'd never played in a stadium that big with that many people," Bauer said. "I wasn't out there a whole lot, I didn't get a chance to learn a whole lot, but I'll be more comfortable with the energy and the routine this time."
  • [] Bauer bracing for Chase Field debut - "Hopefully it's 250 pitches," Bauer joked. "Probably not realistic, but Nolan Ryan threw 244 pitches in a complete game 16-inning win. Most in MLB history. It hurt him so much, he quit pitching 15 years later."
  • [ArizonaSports] Trevor Bauer ready for first home start - "I try to take it day by day, and take everything kind of as it is and as it comes," he said. "I try not to look forward too much past what I have to get done that day. It will definitely be fun; I've been looking forward to it."
