New, 97 comments

Yesterday, the thiccness was TWO real.

Yesterday’s game: Diamondbacks 11, White Sox 2.

Diamondbacks News:

Alex Avila homers twice in win against White Sox.

Lovullo said of Avila. “He’s at a very good spot. I know he’s worked very hard this spring. Alex had a very good day and he deserved it.”

Yoan Lopez gunning for opening day roster.

“I’ve been working hard and I’ll keep working hard because my goal is to be on the 25-man roster for Opening Day. That’s my goal and I’ll keep working hard at it.” Lopez said.

“I think that he is getting information that will help him become an elite pitcher on this staff,” Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said of Lopez. “Look, major-league hitters can get wood on a bullet; you can’t throw it hard enough for some guys,” (cough Bradley...cough....cough...), and “There’s some secondary stuff that I felt like he needed to clean up … and it’s coming along. It’s credit to him for being coachable.”

Taijuan Walker throws 20 pitches from mound.

Walker is hitting all his marks in the recovery schedule that the D-backs projected for him.

Could playing DEEPER help Adam Jones thrive in center field?

Just another way to catch a game, bros. This is good for me and my household.

Managers pay tribute to Bruce Bochy as he enters his final season.

“He’s going to exploit you any way possible,” the Diamondbacks manager said. “He’s not going to do it by just jabbing you. He’s going to try to punch you, and knock you out. So by the end of the day, you’re exhausted.” I would say nice things about Bochy too, for fear that he would head-butt me with that massive globe he calls a skull.

Haper on Trout’s big-daddy-deal.

” .....once I knew Trout was going to sign, it’s inevitable. He was going to be the highest-paid player in the game in all of sports.”
