Tony La Russa Tries To Convince Us That The Diamondbacks Aren't Assholes

Diamondbacks chief baseball officer Tony La Russa is sick and tired of everyone giving his team shit for drilling opposing batters for petty and stupid reasons. He wants everyone to know that if you are going to pitch inside against the Diamondbacks, then you need to be ready for your star player to catch a fastball… » 8/06/14 12:21pm 8/06/14 12:21pm

Diamondbacks Peg Andrew McCutchen In Back; McCutchen Furious

Pirates outfielder Andrew McCutchen took a pitch to his back in Saturday night's game against the Diamondbacks. On a 2-0 count, Arizona reliever Randall Delgado plunked McCutchen. It looked painful, but McCutchen wasn't seriously injured. McCutchen was visibly furious, not at the beaning, but because of how it was… » 8/03/14 1:27pm 8/03/14 1:27pm

Bronson Arroyo Was About As Pretty OK, I Guess, As Anyone Ever

The Diamondbacks Will Wear Kansas City Throwback Uniforms

Look at that. That's a damn fine uniform. Unis from a century ago were usually pretty great—white or gray, high socks, uncluttered chest logo, and my favorite, logo-less caps. The Diamondbacks will suit up in these bad boys next Wednesday, and they're going to look great, but it's more than little weird that… » 4/18/14 1:55pm 4/18/14 1:55pm

D-Backs GM Kevin Towers Is Mad At His Team About The Dumbest Thing

The Arizona Diamondbacks did not have the best season, finishing with an 81-81 record, and that disappointment seems to have filled general manager Kevin Towers with impotent rage. But Towers isn't upset about his players not performing well enough to get his team into the playoffs. No, he's angry because his pitchers… » 10/09/13 12:11pm 10/09/13 12:11pm

Dodgers Clinch NL West, Celebrate By Swimming In D-Backs' Pool

It was revealed earlier in the week that the Diamondbacks politely requested, should Los Angeles clinch in Arizona, that the Dodgers not bring the celebration back onto the field after popping the light beers in the locker room. So, when L.A. clinched tonight, they came back out and went swimming in the pool out in… » 9/19/13 8:22pm 9/19/13 8:22pm
