Mr. Jones is the big news and covered closely on other Snakepit articles to discuss and hopefully bring optimism to the team this year.
Two beautiful scoreless 4 inning outings by two pitchers who will certainly get a lot of starts this year. They combined for 7 strikeouts and 2 wins. My ignorance of spring training doesn’t understand how wins can occur in 4 innings of starting work, but we’ll take it.

Always fun to have Grienke pitch in Spring Training. I’m sure at some point Father Time will catch up, just hasn’t happened yet. His hair is still long and beautiful, take that Father Time. As for his fastball, I’m sure it will be disappointing.
Baseball has some serious fans outside the United States. Good publicity for the D-backs. My guess is there are quite a few D-backs fans in Mexico.
Archie Bradley makes it at number 21 on this list. That seems fair to me, but I would think that Yoshi should make the top 50. I suppose he needs another year of strong play to get him on next year’s list.
