Emily and I are sitting down at Epic Cafe, having just enjoyed some delicious coffee, a blueberry bagel, a blackberry muffin, and this tasty fruit, granola, and yogurt parfait. And now that Emily is done with her final, I can do Snakebytes for her since I'm so nice. Anyway, today's round of links brings recaps, previews, and a lot of random news from around the league.

  • [ blogs]- NickPiecoro - Bullpen testing the limits of patience   
    When speaking about his bullpen midway through last week, GM Josh Byrnes, reiterated that patience is a sometimes the best way to survive tough times. But with Saturday's disaster ringing in our ears we have to wonder: How much longer can he remain patient?
  • [ blogs] NickPiecoro - Progress report: 2009 draftees
    It was true before they made the picks and it's still true today: The 2009 Draft will be a make or break for the Diamondbacks. They had a boatload of extra selections and a barren minor league system, so last June was a perfect opportunity to restock. they really couldn't afford to mess it up. Thus far, it appears they haven't.  
  • [] Gone but not forgotten
    "It's part of baseball fandom to keep an eye on former players for your team, who are now playing somewhere else. Here's a rundown on all the 2009 Diamondbacks that are with other outfits this season." Who is this guy? :-)
