    San Diego Padres v Arizona Diamondbacks

    According to Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic, Scott Boras said his client Willie Bloomquist is drawing “a lot of interest” on the free agent market. Yawn.

  13. The Diamondbacks pull off a crazy win over the Dodgers

    Sep 28, 2011, 9:13 AM EDT

    Ryan Roberts

    The Diamondbacks are still playing for home field advantage in the first round of the playoffs. And if they get it, they can thank whatever deity gave them their miracle win over the Dodgers last night. It was tied 1-1 after nine innings. When you see a game like that, you figure that it will…

    Rays 12, Blue Jays 0: David Price was dominant, punching out 14 Blue Jays. Not literally. If he actually punched them out he would probably have been arrested.
