Looks like we can only score 2 runs per game now, boys.

MLB: Arizona Diamondbacks at San Diego Padres Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

The Diamondbacks have lost 5 games in a row and were just swept by the San Diego Dads. Yesterday’s 5 - 2 loss was painful indeed, but some say not to worry, others like myself refuse to listen to that advice.

Diamondbacks News:

Greinke trade rumor. Bob Nightengale listed Greinke among the Top 10 players who could be moved before the trade deadline. I have listed Mr. Nightengale among the Top 10 people who should shush up.

Dbacks’ offense only scored 5 runs in SD series.

Where is Darnell Coles at? I would like to speak with him. And why can’t we bunt for base-hits? Our team has some speed.

Poll

Considering we have no "power bat" should the D-backs bunt more often to shake things up?

Hazen says call-ups are not an easy fix to offensive woes.

Would it hurt though? “My argument (to that) is, one-through-seven in our lineup or innings one-through-seven against starting pitching is where these games are being lost,” Hazen told Doug & Wolf on 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station. “… We need to get the main cogs in our lineup going on a more regular basis to fix it.”

Jake Lamb puts temp break on running drills. On April 5th Lamb was placed on THE 10 DAY IL. 10 DAY. Say it with me, 10 DAY. I know 10 days is just the minimum time but give me a break.

Kid did not sign with Braves after being drafted last year, instead he signed with a Japanese team. And Scott Boars is not happy about that.

Hudson Valley woman offers clients snake massages.

Serpentessa is a self-proclaimed “snake goddess” based in New Paltz that has been making national headlines for her unconventional approach to massage. Maybe all the boys on the team just need “snake massages”.
