Raise your hand if you thought this would be the last game of the season. The D-backs finish the REGULAR season with a win to give them 93 wins. Home runs by Ianetta and Hazelbaker, along with 4 RBIs by Ildemaro Vargas lead the way for a strong final game. Not that it matters. In two days, we will see if the magic continues.
An injury did occur to Marte, a tight hamstring. Lovullo doesn’t seem too concerned so I’m not going to be too concerned.
A nice feel-good story by a supportive boss. Jim, would you do the same for me?
This is it. Baseball is a game that defines greatness over many games, not one. Anything can happen of course, which is what worries me. I believe that the D-backs are a better team than the Rockies. In Greinke I trust.
Goldy had a mini-slump to end the season. Unclear if it is elbow injury related, but unfortunately his average dipped below .300. Round numbers aside, could this be his year?
Babe Ruth and Roger Maris are still the only players to accomplish 60 HRs and not be under strong suspicion of using PEDs. Congratulations to Stanton on a great year.
A brief look at how the playoff teams got where they are right now.
Get rid of the DH, that should help.
