The San Francisco Giants have reached a six-year, $130 million deal with Johnny Cueto, according to ESPN’s Buster Olney.
The Los Angeles Dodgers are a remarkable experiment in what happens when you take the financial brakes off a team and see how far you can fly with pure spending. On the field, their ethos is pretty simple: get men on base and hit homers on offense, then strike people out when they have the ball. Last year they had the…
The headline on the Diamondbacks’ official site is maybe less than objective: “D-backs wow with cutting-edge new uniforms.” Well, whatever else you can say about the uniforms unveiled yesterday, you can’t deny there sure are a lot of them.
Alpha Chi Omega sisters from Arizona State University went to Wednesday night’s Diamondbacks game. Were selfies taken? Oh, you better believe selfies were taken. Hell, there were even a few chelfies (churro selfies).
Triple plays are incredibly difficult to pull off. There needs to be at least two runners on base with no outs, a ball hit to precisely the right spot, and flawless execution from the fielders. Normally they occur about five times per season.
There’s a good chance you haven’t seen much of Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt over the last few seasons, despite the fact that he’s one of the best hitters in baseball. If Goldschmidt’s in your blindspot, don’t feel too bad, that’s just what happens when a guy plays in Arizona for a team that has not been…
It was terrifying—as always—when Diamondbacks rookie starter Archie Bradley was hit in the face by a line drive off the bat of Carlos Gonzalez in last night’s 12-5 Arizona win. But all things considered, it could have been so much worse.
A Carlos Gonzalez liner led to a scary moment tonight as Arizona pitcher spent several minutes on the ground after the ball appeared to strike the Arizona pitcher in the face.
Breaded chicken dropped from the sky. How did it get there; who knows why?
A Dodgers fan in Chase Field’s Batters Box Suite appeared to be told to remove his cap and put on a companion’s D-Backs jersey during yesterday afternoon’s game, an incident similar to one two years ago that a ballpark patron called “ the worst experience she’s ever had at a sporting event.”
Congratulations to the Diamondbacks for getting their local TV money before that bubble bursts. Their new deal with Fox Sports Arizona is worth more than $1 billion.
When the Arizona Diamondbacks cleaned house in the offseason, firing manager Kirk "The Grit Lord" Gibson and GM Kevin Towers, the schadenfreude-inclined baseball fan may have feared that the team's new regime would do away with the team's retrograde ethos—the one that made them think trading Justin Upton was a good…
The Arizona Diamondbacks traded starting pitcher Wade Miley to the Boston Red Sox last week, and based on recent comments made by Miley, he may have been moved in part because of his refusal to adhere to the team's silly dietary restrictions.
The Cardinals found themselves in much the same position as the Dodgers did a year ago: at Chase Field, about to clinch the division. Would they celebrate the same way, by diving into the right-field pool and peeing all over the unwritten rules? They would not, because the Cardinals are class personified.
The Arizona Diamondbacks will announce the firing of GM Kevin Towers later this morning, according to AZCentral, possibly seeking a grindinger, grittier, harder-nosed GM with more intangibles and who's willing to stand up for his suitemates in the front office.
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…
The Diamondbacks won last night on a walk-off fielder's choice in the 10th, as Nick Ahmed successfully broke up the Pirates' potential double-play by getting hit in the arm by Jayson Nix's throw to first. Pretty perfect positioning with that arm, actually. Maybe a little too perfect.
