Yesterday’s game - Dbacks 3 Rockies 5

Diamondbacks News:

ESPN ranks Greinke 65th out of top 100 entering 2019 season.

Not surprising really, he is still one of the best starting pitchers in the game and have you watched him this spring? Amazing.

Adam Jones eager for a fresh start.

Another Adam Jones piece but this article comes from the Baltimore Sun and has some good Adam Jones quotes in it such as when asked about his defensive prowess: “I don’t worry about all that kind of stuff, the analytical stuff, when I’m playing,” Jones said. “If a ball is hit, I try to get to it as quick as possible and get it back in.”

Babies and Baseball: Dbacks pitchers learning dual roles.

Koch and Godley had children recently - they explain how that has affected their baseball life. Godley, apparently can not live in an RV by the tracks anymore....

Video: Kids reunite with military Dad during Dbacks game.

Pretty cool video of 3 youngsters seeing their father for the 1st time in who knows how long. Warning, there are Dodger fans in this video and they are happy and clapping for the kids. DO NOT let that fool you. Dodger fans have no soul, no mind, they are empty. The clapping and celebration for the kids is just a scheme to make you feel like Dodger fans are not evil.

Today’s game at 1:10 p.m. v Giants at Salt River Fields.

Around Baseball:

MLB and players union agree to switch to single trade deadline.

Longest current contracts for each MLB team.

Marte is locked up until 2022, so I will probably feel safe buying a jersey with his # on it this season, and not have to worry he will be traded anytime soon.
