The Active Roster is affectionately referred to as the 25-man roster, but there are some circumstances in which it need not have exactly 25 men on it. The Disabled List is one exception, but teams are also allowed to run with 24 players in a pinch, have a 26th man for double headers, and a [...]
On this site, we’ve been pretty outspoken about our discontent with some of the higher profile moves made by the Diamondbacks front office this offseason. But we were not at all surprised to find that overall, we considered the offseason moves to represent a net positive. To give the front office an overall grade for the [...]
Don’t look now, but as of March 4th, Paul Goldschmidt is hitting .200 (3 for 15) in six Spring Training games. Sure, his first single knocked in a couple of runs, but Goldy hasn’t exactly started off the spring red-hot as we might have hoped. After a season in which he was nearly the [...]Continue Reading →
Yesterday Kirk Gibson pegged Patrick Corbin and Trevor Cahill as his starters for the opening series in Australia. Corbin was an easy choice; he was the Diamondbacks best pitcher in 2013. The selection of Cahill was a bit more surprising. Wade Miley had a better year than Cahill, but Cahill actually seems like the right [...]Continue Reading →
Stop me if you’ve heard this before: the D-backs have gone .500… in spring training games so far. That’s right, with six games in the rear view, the team has gone 3-3. Despite some rain difficulties over the weekend, Arizona has played more games than any other team as it gears up to head to [...]Continue Reading →
The D-backs did some things really well last season. Baserunning was not one of those things. The D-backs were dead last in terms of how they affected games with stolen base attempts, but they also weren’t particularly good at other aspects of baserunning, either.
First, a quick look at how the D-backs fared overall. The [...]Continue Reading →
It’s no secret, the Diamondbacks played a ton of extra innings last year. It was brutal for the fan base to see blown saves or inept offense drive the team to extras time and time again. It led to some really exciting baseball on the one hand, but I can’t help but wonder what kind [...]Continue Reading →
As has been reported by Nick Piecoro and others, Gerardo Parra brought more than just a new one-year contract with him to spring training this season — he’s also changed his batting stance. According to the Piecoro report, the new stance is less open, with his front foot a little closer to the [...]Continue Reading →

- RP can't do side work to work out kinks. So flexibility of young bullpen very valuable, even beyond $ savings http://t.co/6tOrCMS6RP, Mar 07
- Officially, I'll reserve judgment on Perez signing until we see terms. But I'm not going to like it as part of a trend, no matter what;, Mar 07
- Actually, it looks like I was off on Perez's splits. Reverse split not a career thing. Still no lefty killer, though., Mar 07
- The one thing I thought the #Dbacks FO was doing right was transitioning to a young bullpen (cheaper, but more flexible). Nope., Mar 07
- LEFT HANDED RELIEF MEANS GOOD AT GETTING LEFTIES OUT NOT SOMEONE WHO THROWS LEFTY WITH CAREER-LONG REVERSE SPLITS, Mar 07
