The Diamondbacks' current seven-game losing run is tied for sixth all-time, and is the only one in the top 12 where we averaged less than two runs a game over the streak. We had an eight-game streak in 1998, a ten-game one in 2010, and no less than three longer streaks in 2004, lasting nine, eleven and fourteen games. Kinda shows you just how bad we were in 2004, especially after we lost Richie Sexson. It's probably fortunate we had Paul Goldschmidt around for 86 games more than Sexson, because since we lost Goldie in the first game of August, this team is 11-27 - that works out to a 47-115 game pace over an entire season.

It is, of course, Goldschmidt Bobblehead night at Chase, continuing the theme which has seen every player honored with a Bobblehead for the Diamondbacks this season hurt or traded away: Patrick Corbin, Gerardo Parra and Martin Prado. Even the Zombie Bobblehead apparently had to hit the disabled list after one of his arms fell off in the bullpen. The good news is, this is the last scheduled bobbler of the season, but I imagine a few players will be casting a nervous eye over the 2015 promotional schedule, when it's announced, and keeping fingers crossed their names are NOT on it....
