National League 6, American League 8

National League 6, American League 8

Ten home-runs were hit tonight in Washington, setting an All-Star Game record. I thought the Home-Run Derby was last night? But I was apparently mistaken, as the balls were flying out in Washington tonight, the American League eventually prevailing in extra innings. Things remained tight in the early going, with the game tied at two after seven. Paul Goldschmidt struck out in his first plate appearance, but then pulled a Goldy, coming back from 0-2 down to draw a walk in his second, and was then replaced as the National League’s DH by Yadier Molina. Former D-back Jean Segura was likely...

Giants’ Brandon Crawford weighs in on Manny Machado possibly in Dodger blue

WASHINGTON - Leapfrogging over three teams in the National League West is tough enough, but doing it with Manny Machado playing shortstop on the division leaders makes it a more grueling task. The Dodgers are expected to land Machado any day, a trade that could turn the division’s balance of power and put more heat on the Diamondbacks, Rockies and Giants. “Ooph, OK,” Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford said when told of the Machado-to-Los Angeles reports. “Any team that gets him will have an immediate impact, for sure. He’s one of the best players in...

NL 6, AL 8: Brutal All Star Game Recap

Cheers to Goldy, Corbin and Greinke, our All Stars. It’s 5 p.m. and the folks on Fox Sports are announcing the rosters to the crowd, meanwhile The Brute Squad is enjoying a bbq and many brews. They say this game does not matter and really it does not. What does matter to me is that Dave Roberts is managing Goldy, Greinke and Corbin, for this one game. The rosters have been introduced and I am disappointed, but not surprised that Bryce Harper was cheered for the loudest. Remember folks, he is just a chin, an image, and not an All Star. Now onto Mr. Joe Buck....this guy must have been...

Diamondbacks Midseason Prospect List: Top Catcher Prospects

The next installment of the midseason prospect list will go over specifically catcher prospects in the Diamondbacks organization. Daulton Varsho, Visalia Rawhide (High A): When the Diamondbacks drafted him in the 2nd Competitive Balance Lottery round last year, there were concerns he lacked the arm to stick behind the plate and with this athleticism and speed could have transitioned to 2B or LF. His defense behind the plate has improved to where sticking behind the plate is no longer an issue. In addition, he was able to build off his debut summer where he was the Northwest League MVP...

Diamondbacks Midseason Prospect List: Top Starting Pitcher Prospects

Diamondbacks Midseason Prospect List: Top Starting Pitcher Prospects

Originally I was going to do another Top 30 list, but instead I have opted to separate the prospects into their respective positions: Starting pitchers, catchers/infield, outfield, and relievers. I figure that will be a more effective list to compare players of a similar position in the system vs. trying to compare players of the same position in a write-up. The Midseason Top 30 will come out at the end of this series of articles. The first list will go over the starting pitchers, due to the level of importance and value to a farm system.

Arizona Diamondbacks 1, Atlanta Braves 5: One bad inning

The third frame this afternoon wasn’t very good for Arizona on either side, as they failed to close out a sweep of Atlanta Record: 53-44. Pace: 89-73. Change on 2017: -3. The Diamondbacks still took the series in Atlanta, and went 3-3 on the road-trip. But a sloppy third inning paved the way for the Braves to dodge the sweep, on a muggy afternoon in Georgia. The D-backs must now await the outcome of tonight’s Angels-Dodgers game to see if they go into the break on top of the National League West. In the early stages here, it appeared almost as if both teams had somewhere else to be for...
