Snake Bytes 10/23: Uncertainty Abound

Are we surprised that the Arizona Diamondbacks re-signed Eduardo Escobar? I’ll be honest. I did not expect to open Twitter at any point this offseason and see, “Arizona Diamondbacks re-sign infielder Eduardo Escobar.” Yet here we are before the World Series has even concluded. What does this mean for the team going forward? Will Mike Hazen find a trade for one of his existing infielders? Does Eduardo Escobar find playing time at multiple positions?

Arizona Diamondbacks 3, San Diego Padres 4

The 2018 season ends in... not-victory While attention was focused elsewhere, the D-backs finished the season lame, blowing a late lead to end 2018 with and a final record of 82-80. In a tight contest, Arizona scored a go-ahead run on Socrates Brito’s sacrifice fly in the top of the ninth, which backed up sole home-runs by Ketel Marte (#14) and a pinch-hit shot, above, by Steven Souza (#6). Marte had three of the Diamondbacks’ six hits. Robbie Ray had a typically Ray-esque start, with a lot of strikeouts and a lot of pitches. He took 93 pitches to get through four innings, allowing two...

Marte was 3-for-4 overall, but went 3-for-3 off Kershaw with an RBI single, an RBI triple and a solo home run. That was the entire offense until A.J....
