Quotes N Stuff

For today's quotes I thought it would be fun to post some real ones and a fake one.  Can you tell which is which?

"He's been taking good at bats lately.  But that's what I expect from the former Red Power Ranger."  - Mark Grace on Tuffy Gosewisch

"I've come to the park the same every day for the last 10 years. I'm not going to change what I do now." - Tuffy on his night

"We had the lineup up and guys were asking me if I had too much to drink on the plane from L.A. to Colorado." - Chip Hale

"I think the word is small-sample-size. It's nice. It's just great all-around at-bats, I think. We tried to kick ourselves in the butt after our series in L.A." - Mark Trumbo on playing a new game invented in the hallways of Coors Field


There Was A Game Yesterday?

What's with there being no 2 day rain delay?  Oh that's right, we have a roof.

My feelings on the next article....

Diamondbacks' Jake Lamb taking more time to recover from injury

The initial timeline for Diamondbacks third baseman Jake Lamb's recovery from a stress reaction in his left foot anticipated a return in three weeks but with Lamb only a handful of days shy of that benchmark, it's clear that early prognosis was too optimistic.

(Editors Note: These type of injuries never seem to go well... based on past history every time we hear something is "small" it ends up being much bigger than the club expected.  I'm quite worried now.)


Diamondbacks made "no promises" about call-up to Jarrod Saltalamacchia

Arizona's catchers have combined to hit .240 with one homer and a .594 OPS this season, but the newly signed Jarrod Saltalamacchia will report to Triple-A and there's no timetable for when he'll join the big-league team.


Diamondbacks' Peter O'Brien flourishing in the outfield at Triple-A

Diamondbacks prospect Peter O'Brien seems to be adjusting to life in the outfield well. O'Brien was originally drafted by the Yankees in 2012, but was traded to Arizona at last year's trade deadline.


Arizona Diamondbacks RHP Archie Bradley ‘blessed', scheduled to start May 16 at Philadelphia

One thing and one thing only is preventing Archie Bradley from returning to the Arizona Diamondbacks starting rotation and that's the fact that he remains on the 15-day disabled list.
