MLB: Arizona Diamondbacks at Tampa Bay Rays
Bradley for the win.

Diamondbacks News:

Dbacks 3, Rays 2 - Praise be to Robbie Ray, Archie Bradley, and Zack Godley.

Dyson, Peralta and Flores provided most of the offense for the game. Hirano is starting to worry me a bit, he does not look right - almost looks sick.

Taylor Clarke not assured of another start, despite his complete awesomeness.

“We liked what we saw,” Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said. “But we’re going to have to work through some other moving parts before we can commit to what’s going on.” Torey is killing me softly with his song, killing me softly with his words.

Dbacks assistant GM: Taylor Clarke showed poise in debut as starter.

“He navigated through a lineup that, it’s first place in the AL East. I was really impressed with everything with his four pitches,” Amiel Sawdaye told Doug & Wolf on 98.7 FM.

Alex Avila played 2nd straight day.

2 days in a row? whoa, bro. Such athleticism over a quad strain that occurred while trotting the bases.

Rideshare drivers (and passengers) caught misbehaving at Chase Field.

Basically the article outlines that lyft drivers etc. are dropping their fares off near the ballpark but in spaces like intersections, next to the train tracks, messing with the flow of traffic and so on. I see this all the time on the walk from Seamus McCaffery’s to Chase Field. I’m telling you, some of these people were raised by wild regard for anyone but themselves.

Dbacks return home to face the Braves today at 6:40 p.m. Weaver v Soroka.

Around Baseball:

Joey Gallo is 1st player to reach 100 home runs before 100 singles.

He currently boasts 93 singles.

Real of not? The Twins are baseball’s most pleasant surprise.

Sitting at 23-12 with a .657 winning %, are the Twins the biggest surprise of the season so far?

Tim Anderson calls baseball a “boring sport.”

He is quickly becoming a villain.

“I don’t really know the rules,” Anderson said during Wednesday’s show. “There’s not any for me. I can’t call them dumb because I don’t have any. ... Nobody really came to me and said these are the rules, so I really don’t know what they are.”


After reading what Tim Anderson has said about our beloved sport, does he deserve to be thrown at?

How the NL is taking over baseball.

“And right now, dear readers, the National League is the better, more entertaining league. It has overtaken the AL in every way. Let me explain.”

Throw the N.L. in the air... if you don’t care... fool.
