D-backs news:

Jake Lamb buys Arcadia home for 2.8 million.

Early this year, Lamb’s teammate, roommate and landlord Archie Bradley joked that he planned to raise his friend’s rent, according to Yahoo Sports. That joke came after Lamb’s salary with the Diamondbacks jumped from $573,000 to $4.275 million.

Party at Lambo’s house!

Goldschmidt, Dbacks facing 3 paths.

The 31-year-old hit .290/.389/.533 last season. Selected by the D-backs in the eighth round of the 2009 Draft, Lord Goldschmidt has become the face of the franchise, going to six straight All-Star Games, collecting three Gold Glove Awards and three Silver Sluggers.

He truly is the King of Kings.

AJ Pollock the best replacement for Billy Hamilton.

To replace Hamilton offensively and defensively, the Reds should sign A.J. Pollock of the Arizona Diamondbacks. Sure Pollock hasn’t been the same since his All-Star and Gold Glove season of 2015 due to injuries, but a new surrounding could be the answer (see Matt Harvey). The first glaring difference from Hamilton is the offensive numbers.

Beware Reds, Pollock breaks easily.

Hall of Famer Willie McCovey has died.

McCovey -- nicknamed “Stretch” for his lanky 6-foot-4 frame -- played 19 of his 22 major-league seasons with the San Francisco Giants, and was one of the franchise’s most beloved players.

Off topic Snake story:
