SnakePit Round Table: Playing better, or better playing?

Photo by Christian Petersen/ The departure of Melancon as closer, Soto’s suspension and concerts from hell are also discussed... If you are interested in taking part in a round table alongside the regular writers, like Nik this week, just answer one or more of the questions in the comments. I’ll select one respondee, and send them the questions so they can join in next weekend! Mark Melancon lost the regular closer’s job, replaced by a “committee”. Is it the right move? Jack: Certainly. While Melancon seems to have settled down of late, there is no reason to...

John Leyba-USA TODAY Sports Team News Diamondbacks match last season’s win total with shutout victory over Rockies “I was able to reset over the All-Star break.
