The Dave McKay Interview

The Dave McKay Interview

The Diamondbacks first base/outfield coach sits down for an in-depth interview. At the suggestion of Red_Leader, we reached out to the Diamondbacks PR department to request an interview with Dave McKay. Since Dave is quite busy these days getting ready for the season, I was really appreciative of getting this opportunity and ample time to interview him. As the First Base Coach, Dave is responsible for coaching the players on base running, and also serves as the outfield coach. Long a favorite of the Snakepit due to his work with baserunners and outfielders, areas the team has excelled in...

Diamondbacks 10, Dodgers 4

Diamondbacks 10, Dodgers 4

Adam Jones Rakes, Matt Koch Bakes Today’s game was somewhat unusual to follow as it was a “webcast” on MLB.com, with visual and stadium sound, but no announcers. I actually kinda liked it once I got used to it. Gameday did not have any pitch info, just at bat results. Pitch info on gameday would have been helpful perhaps. Adam Jones was the hitting star, leading off the game with a solo homerun to left off Dodger starter Dennis Santana. He also delivered a bases loaded single in the 2nd, and just for good measure, a bases loaded HBP in the 6th, to finish his day 2 for 3 with 4...

That said, it won’t be Matt Koch pitching for Arizona next Thursday, and I doubt it will be John Ryan Murphy who will be catching Zack Greinke. The rest of the line-up though, does...

Angels 2, Diamondbacks 1 - Chilled Offense

Angels 2, Diamondbacks 1 - Chilled Offense

Cooler weather chills the bats at Salt River Fields Merrill Kelly hasn’t had the greatest debut for his new team, struggling with both control and his ability to get people out early on in Spring Training. Starts like these help erase some of the doubt that comes with poor performance. Kelly went 5 innings today, giving up just 3 hits and 1 run with 3 strikeouts to round out his outing. His only blemish was a 1-out double followed by a Mike Trout single in the 3rd to put the Angels on top early 1-0. He finished strong, shutting the Angels down in order to end his outing. He finished with...
