[Whisper] Good morning, and welcome to Sunday's SnakeBytes, which will be brought to you at a very low level of volume. And, thus, in complete contrast to last night's game. I will be referred to as "Whisperin' Jim" for the rest of the day, thank you very much. Here are the recap, some rehab news for Webb and other stuff after the jump. [PS: The GameDay Thread might be a bit delayed]


Team News and Notes

  • [FoxSportsArizona] CEO says changes to come "You question why you continue on this pace with the same team and continue to add to the payroll without getting the winning results," Hall said. "Teams that typically go through that put on the brakes and go in a different direction. I don’t know I’d label it as rebuilding, but one thing I am seriously considering is an adjustment in the budget."
  • [AZCentral] Webb close to throwing off mound - "It's looking like one more week and I'm ready to throw off the rubber," said Webb. "It's been awhile, but I'm looking forward to it, because once I start doing that I'm on my way, and then it's just a matter of time."
  • [] For D-backs, pitching to contact can hurt - "You don't want to send mixed messages and tell them to stop throwing strikes," manager A.J. Hinch said. "That will lead to walks, and then we'll have a different conversation. It's a vicious cycle." As Hinch suggested, the discussion should focus not on throwing strikes, but quality strike-throwing or, in other words, nailing the zone's four corners.[The same piece also says Miguel Montero will start a rehab assignment on Monday in the minors]
  • [AZCentral] Vasquez looks to build on recent outing - "We had 10 losses straight, and in my mind, I had to win. I used my pitchers, and I put everything into the game. I threw my pitches. I'm nothing thinking to strike them out. I try to put the ball in play to get some outs."
