"I'm pretty sure Jean just needed to know that Arizona had better beer." - Josh Collmenter

"Obviously, you know they gave up a lot. The only thing I can do is be confident in myself, and when I get the ball every fifth day, go out there and compete as hard as I can. I have way more to worry about than what the Diamondbacks gave up." - Shelby Miller

"It's not something we're going to do forever. That's two No. 1 picks we've moved, and that hurts. We've been an organization that prides ourselves in drafting and development." - Derrick Hall

"Brandon didn't have his electric stuff today. He certainly didn't have his command which he needs to be successful at this level. His velocity was down and his breaking ball was kind of a roller today." - Bryan Price

Diamondback News

Segura has 3 hits, Gosselin homers and D-backs beat Reds 9-3 - Jean Segura had three hits and Phil Gosselin hit a two-run homer to help the Arizona Diamondbacks rough up Brandon Finnegan and beat the Cincinnati Reds 9-3 Sunday.
