"I'm just trying to see something out over the plate and get my foot down early," Ross said. "He's throwing 98 [mph], so you have to get your foot down early and try to see and square it up. Luckily, he threw a slider that sort of started at me and I saw it good and put a good swing on it, and luckily, it had enough distance to get out. Definitely not something I'm sitting on, I'm not up there sitting on a slider."
"Our approach against him was to work him and get his pitch count up," Ross said. "That was our goal."

Count ESPN's TimKurkjian in the category of people who seem to think that the Diamondbacks not only need to make a strong trade before the deadline, but would like to see them acquire Yovani Gallardo. He does go on to qualify the idea however, pointing out that Gallardo might not be a very big upgrade.
Former Diamondback Max Scherzer continues to have not only a good year, but now is starting to have a historic one.
Sometimes bone-headed plays happen that just make one want to shake their head.
It seems that Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon has some strong feelings about the possibility of Yasiel Puig as an all-star. He's not alone either as Mike Scioscia weighs in as well.
