Well, at least we won't be the first team eliminated from the post-season, as our expansion siblings just bit the big one against the Rangers. And if the Yankees lose tonight, they'll be eliminated as well, likely before our fate is decided. As far as we're concerned, win one. That's all I want for today. If we can do that, then we'll take care of tomorrow when we get there. But let's just not get swept: one at a time.

  • "We are now sold out for tonight! Wear your red and get here early. @dbacks are ready and this place will be rocking!" - Derrick Hall on Twitter.
  • [FSAZ] D-backs turn to cool, calm Collmenter - "No one personifies the Diamondbacks' regime change more than rookie Josh Collmenter, who will get the ball in their must-win game Tuesday."
  • [AZCentral] Montero seeks pop at the plate - "I feel like I'm putting good swings, but I haven't been getting the good results," Montero said. "Hopefully, I'll get in a good situation where I can hit and drive in a couple of runs and help the team. But if I'm not hitting, I can help the team catching and help my pitching staff get through their whole lineup. That's my role."
  • [ESPN] 2011 NLDS: Diamondbacks don't give up - Willie Bloomquist says, "It's going to be the toughest test we've had all year long. But it can be done. We're not going to fold up our tents and leave just yet."
