Diamondbacks News:

Gallen stymies Dodgers, lives up to reputation

“They feel he’s that good and so do I,” Strom said about Gallen being a Cy Young candidate. “When I saw him pitch against us a number of years back in Houston, I mean, the hitters were coming back [to the dugout] raving about this guy. So I knew a lot about Gallen.”

Diamondbacks score twice after error to beat Dodgers 3-1

Zac Gallen pitched six scoreless innings, and the Diamondbacks scored two runs after Max Muncy’s throwing error in the eighth inning of their 3-1 victory over the Dodgers on Wednesday.

“We’ve learned to embrace close games, we’ve learned to embrace execution in critical moments and we’re prepared to play games like this all season long,” Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said.

“I think from a performance standpoint I would have expected both to get off to a slower start — coming off surgery, not playing a lot last year, starting the year (with) cold (weather),” Diamondbacks farm director Josh Barfield said. “But these guys have come out and from Day 1 they’ve been on it — almost from the first swing they’ve taken.”

The arrogant SF Giants are ruining baseball by playing hard for 9 innings

Yes, they look like contenders again. Sure, they have an intriguing, exciting roster of players. And yes, they’re winning lots of games.

But therein lies the problem – how are they winning those games? Unfortunately, the Giants seem to be under the impression that they can just score a bunch of runs, and then score even more runs later in the game, with absolutely no regard for the feelings of the opposing team.

Who are the 5 worst MLB owners today?

Throughout Major League Baseball, it is difficult to tell which owner stands out among the rest as the worst in the league. If this was a few years ago, it would be easy to say the Wilpons, the ex-owners of the New York Mets. Today, it’s not as clear.

So how did someone make the list below? The owners listed below all rank last in almost every MLB category. These five owners/teams have been below average for many years and have very low fan attendance at games. In baseball, franchises can only be productive if the owners are willing to pay the price.
