So, there’s no baseball right now. Which sucks. But we don’t have to go without. Beginning tomorrow, and for the three weeks after that, we will be staging a single-elimination tournament to determine the all-time champion among Arizona Diamondbacks teams. Using the whatifsports.com engine, we will be pitting their selection for each season against each other, to decide which season is the best. Seeding has been determined based solely on regular-season wins, so the 2001 World Series champions are only seeded fifth. And the single-elimination format means there is plenty of scope for upsets since, as we know, in one game, anything can happen in baseball!

Of course, it’s going to be a bit odd, since we’ll probably end up with Randy Johnson facing Randy Johnson on more than one occasion!

Here is the full list of seeds:

  1. 1999
  2. 2002
  3. 2011
  4. 2017
  5. 2001
  6. 2007
  7. 2019
  8. 2000
  9. 2003
  10. 2018
  11. 2008
  12. 2013
  13. 2012
  14. 2015
  15. 2005
  16. 2006
  17. 2009
  18. 2016
  19. 2010
  20. 1998
  21. 2014
  22. 2004
