The Diamondbacks just announced a new sponsorship deal for their ballpark, which will be known as T-Mobile Field for the rest of the season. "It's appropriate," said team president Derrick Hall, "because our offense have been phoning it in for the entire homestand." Ok, I made that up [I'm saying this for the sarcasm-impaired]. But it's entirely accurate, because over these nine games and 308 plate-appearances, the Diamondbacks have hit below the Whitesell line, batting .199, with a .548 OPS, and averaging 2.8 runs per game. And that's after hitting pretty well in the first couple of contests: over the past week and 227 PAs, the line drops to .185/.228/.294 and 2.4 runs/game.

Line-up after the jump, kishi on the recap, as we try to avoid going - ugh - 2-8 on the homestand, which has already effectively killed off our post-season hopes.

  1. Chris Young CF
  2. Aaron Hill 2B
  3. Jason Kubel LF
  4. Paul Goldschmidt 1B
  5. Justin Upton RF
  6. Ryan Wheeler 3B
  7. Jake Elmore SS
  8. Wil Nieves C
  9. Patrick Corbin P

Day game after a night game, so Nieves gets to start. Goldie back at first, and Good Wheeler, responsible for half the team's hits last night, gets another start. Gerardo Parra, responsible for the other half...not so much.
