The bats go silent once more and so does the team. The D-backs will not be above .500 at home this year. Perhaps not for the season as well. It just all fell apart in the past month. At least this team was interesting for most of the year. Bullpen? Offense? Humidor? Not willing to pay Just Dingers? Regardless of the answer, it’s time to start discussing next year.
That will be the story of 2018. Winning series at a near-record clip to start with an incredible bullpen. A tough May, but hanging in there until the end. The bullpen suddenly breaks down and now it’s over. Still better than sitting through 2016 I suppose.
DO NOT LET THE DODGERS CELEBRATE IN OUR POOL.
Some are happy, some aren’t. Good guys wear black. Can of corn. You can put it on the board - yes! Time for something new.
Don’t expect the national media to have much optimism for the D-backs 2019 season after such an end to this year.
