SnakeBytes, 2/4: Spring Training THIS MONTH Edition

Yes! It's finally February! By the end of the month, we'll be watching the Diamondbacks take the field in reality, rather than just in our dreams, or on our console screens. Fanfest is a week tomorrow, pitchers and catchers report shortly after that, and then... Mind you, at the time of writing, we'll have to chip the ice off Kirk Gibson before starting him. For this is not the Arizona I signed up for. Any typos in what follows, are largely the result of producing this edition of SnakeBytes while wearing mittens.

If you want more D-backs chat, Fox Sports Arizona's Jack Magruder, Joe Borowski and Daron Sutton will be having their latest D-backs Talkback live on the FSAZ website at noon today. Presuming they can dig themselves out of the snow-drifts. And are we up for a Superbowl GDT on Sunday? Or, perhaps likelier, a Superbowl commercial GDT....

Very Diamondbacks news

  • [AZCentral] Diamondbacks back off idea of using humidor this year - "The decision hasn't been made, but we have not focused on it this off-season," Diamondbacks CEO Derrick Hall said. "With time running out, it doesn't make sense to do it this off-season."
  • [] D-backs looking to reach contract agreement with Kelly Johnson - Sometime Wednesday or Thursday, the D-backs will reach out to the agent for second baseman Kelly Johnson... "We haven't had any dialogue since the numbers were filed," D-backs general manager Kevin Towers said.
  • Jarrod Parker's New UCL - Dan, a.k.a. IHSB, has a new personal blog. His first post has updated his prospects list, and uses the word "plethora". I just would like to know if he knows what a plethora is. I would not like to think that a person would tell someone he has a plethora, and then find out that that person has no idea what it means to have a plethora. 

Fairly Diamondbacks news
