Snake Bytes 10/11: When will I see you again?

When will my heart beat again? Corbin’s a future Yankee? Greinke traded for young talent/salary dump? Goldy cast away (traded) in his prime? The recent news of a potential D-backs rebuild has me missing my homies already. Not sure there will be enough liquor to “pour out”. And now the news. D-back’s news: Are Robbie Ray and Zack Greinke potential fits for White Sox? Majestic. Speculative article based on the past day or two news of “D-backs willing to trade EVERYONE!” hype. What kills me is that the vultures have already begun to circle. Greinke?...

Snake Bytes 10/10: One Empire Falls

The Dodgers are on their way to the NLCS to face off against the Brewers, but the Yankees will be staying home after falling to the Red Sox. Diamondbacks News Diamondbacks to Explore Trade Market It looks like Arizona’s front office will at least be taking calls on the availability of the likes of Paul Goldschmidt and Zack Greinke. THis could be the start of a rebuild, or it might simply be a careful and thorough inventory.

Snake Bytes 9/22: Rockies Interfere with Postseason Chances

Snake Bytes 9/22: Rockies Interfere with Postseason Chances

A controversial call at second base in the 8th inning may mark the point at which Arizona’s season finally died. Colorado 6, Arizona 2 Zack Greinke and German MArquez faced off in a pitching duel on Friday night. When Greinke left the game with one out in the eighth inning, there was one runner on and Colorado had only scored twice. Then Jake Diekman and a blown interference call at second base happened. When Arizona came up to bat in the bottom half of the inning, they were suddenly down by four. Offense, Bullpen, Umpires Spoil Greinke’s Fine Outing Once again, the Diamondbacks jumped...

Arizona Diamondbacks 2, Colorado Rockies 6

Hey, look! It’s a bullpen meltdown! The Diamondbacks jumped out in front on David Peralta’s 29th home-run of the season, a towering two-run shot to right. However, as we’ve seen so often before, the team’s early success deserted them the rest of the way. Zack Greinke was excellent early on, not allowing a base-runner until the fifth inning, but the Rockies got on the board there, when a walk came around to score, and then tied things up in the sixth. Greinke was economical, working into the eighth inning. He was eventually charged with three runs and two walks with six...

Snake Bytes 9/17: Technically Not Over Yet

Snake Bytes 9/17: Technically Not Over Yet

Is it time think about next year? April is a long ways away. Astros 5, Diamondbacks 4 The Diamondbacks predictably couldn’t hit Verlander and Greinke had to pitch in the 7th inning for lack of a bullpen as the D-backs fall. A late rally of 3 runs in the 9th was not enough. At this point in the season, a late-season winning rally will probably fall short as well. At least, the D-backs showed their fans something this year, unlike the Arizona Cardinals who might as well not even show up.

Arizona Diamondbacks 4, Houston Astros 5

It was a pitching duel, right up until it wasn’t. Through five innings this was indeed the low-scoring game expected. Zack Greinke and Justin Verlander were pitching in very different ways, but were being almost as effective - aided in Zack’s case by Jon Jay robbing a home-run (above). Houston did inch ahead on a run-scoring double-play in the second, but that was it. Arizona then tied things up in the top of the sixth, after David Peralta hit a solo shot, his 28th home-run of the year. But the lead didn’t last, as Houston immediately retook the lead after the D-backs couldn’t...
