Posted on March 2, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine After making the playoffs as a wild-card team last year, the Arizona Diamondbacks are hoping to take another step forward in 2018.

Posted on February 7, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine Despite a proverbial game of chicken between free agent J.D. Martinez and the Boston Red Sox that has seemingly been going on all offseason, the odds have always been good that Martinez would end up in Boston when all is said and done. However, recent reports indicate […]

Posted on January 11, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine The baseball offseason has been historically slow this winter. Unfortunately, there appears to be no end in sight.

Posted on October 7, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine The Los Angeles Dodgers got their 2017 postseason off to a great start in Game 1, scoring four runs before the Diamondbacks could even record their first out.
