Can the Diamondbacks get the longest winning streak of the Gibson era tonight? They'll be going for their unprecedented second win in a row at Chase. Sarcasm aside, that just hasn't happened a lot lately for the Diamondbacks - they have only managed back-to-back wins three times in the last 42 games played, dating back to May 23rd. Given that track record, it actually would be pleasant to get another win or two under out belts. Unless, of course, the team has decided it's time to go for Tankapalooza 2010, and get the highest draft-pick possible in 2011.

Since kishi unaccountably forgot to give you The Daily Strasburg, here you go. It looks like the Diamondbacks won't get to face him, either here or in Washington. He's starting the first game after the break, and looking at the resulting schedule, he's due to pitch the day before the series both here and in Washington. Not sure whether to be pleased or disappointed in this.

Anyway, not going to be about tonight at all. It's a 'charmerecap tonight, and I'm taking a psychological break from the trauma which has been the 2010 Diamondbacks. I'm actually looking forward greatly to the All-Star break in that regard. Hopefully, they'll do the business and guarantee us at least a split of the series against the Marlins - even if, I'd rather we'd get swept by the Marlins and beaten the Cubs!
