Kind of like going to a pricey sushi restaurant and getting decent fish that doesn’t make you sick. It wasn’t like that mind-blowing, melt-in-your-mouth, fatty tuna goodness you were hoping to get at that price point. But it works. My analogy works for both Zack Greinke’s low-quality quality start and the 5-4 record over the road trip against sub par teams. The Diamondbacks are barely above the Rockies now, but two full games over the Dodgers. Not exactly pulling away like some of us hoped during this stretch.
With two days off in the coming days, all we know for sure is that Patrick Corbin and Clay Buchholz will be next. Apparently, Torey Lovullo has some regrets about keeping Zack Godley in the game on Saturday to give up a second inning of three runs despite warning signs. He wants the best possible match ups going forward for the rest of the year. This means the bullpen will be leaned on heavily in the coming months, a common trend in the league.
This article reminds me that baseball prospects are seen as horses approaching the age of three. More interestingly, we will find out the expanded rosters in a little over a week.
The NL is crazy tight. The Diamondbacks have a legitimate chance to get top seed, an NL West title, either Wild Card spot, or not even make the playoffs. Down the stretch they come.
Is this like that Seinfeld episode when George has to write down Jerry’s move before getting in bed with his girlfriend? Or it might show that the Padres have very hard to remember players.
According to this article, seeing Goldy win it all takes a back seat to Brad Ziegler. Sure, that’s fine I guess.
I’m not sure they do, just like I’m not sure how Dave Stewart did it in the D-backs front office.
Actually, they’re only on pace to win 114 at the moment. Different world in the AL this year.
