In fairness, preseason football is still two spots on the list below watching paint dry and thirteen spots below the ten hour version of Nick Offerman's Yule Log video.
Last Night's Game
D-backs Late Surge Not Enough to Counter Braun
Also, Keon Broxton got five hits. Yes, the Keon Broxton who was apparently not good enough to have a future with this team. Strangely, after leaving the Diamondbacks, he learned how to draw walks, something this organization thinks is pointless, apparently, as he is far from the only outfielder to have a big increase in walk rate after leaving (see: Inciarte, Ender as another example.)
New York Yankees Announce Sunday News Conference With Alex Rodriguez
Any doubt that they want to release him before he's due a balance for hitting #700? The question is, will any team want the attendance boost/circus sideshow of him hitting milestone home runs, and therefore bring him in? His suspension in 2014 practically ensured he wouldn't break Bonds' record (a strange case of MLB protecting the "integrity" of the record set by the first cheater to break the record.)
Reverse Standings Update
The Braves did us a favor by beating the Cardinals last night, and now four games separate the Diamondbacks and Braves, with four games still to play between them. The Diamondbacks have the worst record of any team over the past 30 games, at 8-22.
