  5. Grit isn’t enough: now the Dbacks general manager wants his team to be dirty too

    Oct 9, 2013, 6:57 AM EDT

    Kevin Towers

    Diamondbacks GM Kevin Towers inspired a lot of jokes last winter when he insisted that his team be “gritty” and proceeded to trade away Justin Upton for Martin Prado (among other moves) that he claimed were about instilling a blue collar attitude. That wasn’t enough, though, apparently. Now he wants his team to be out-and-out…

    Alejandro De Aza,

    All kinds of comebacks on Wednesday. Let’s call it “Comeback Wednesday!” — wait, what? Really? OK, sorry folks. The people in the marketing department said that’s impossibly lame. They’re working on something centering around the idea of “Extreme Comebacks” but they want to focus group it first. We’ll let you know. White Sox 6, Yankees…

    Braves Diamondbacks Baseball

    Braves 10, Diamondbacks 1: Justin Upton went 4 for 5 with a homer and 2 RBI. Chris Johnson went 3 for 4 with a homer and 3 RBI. Martin Prado had a couple of hits and I suppose he was gritty. Gonna say that the first visit to Arizona for the Braves post-trade falls to…

  17. J.J. Putz left last night’s game with elbow stiffness

    May 8, 2013, 9:13 AM EDT

    J.J. Putz

    This isn’t good: J.J. Putz left his appearance last night because of elbow stiffness. Putz has been struggling so far this year — he’s allowed six runs on 12 hits and eight walks in twelve and two-thirds — and perhaps this is the reason why.  If he is DL’d, the Dbacks’ options at closer are David Hernandez,…

    Aaron Hill

    Diamondback second baseman Aaron Hill is progressing slower than many, including GM Kevin Towers, expected, tweets Nick Piecoro.

  20. D-Backs president still happy with Justin Upton trade

    Apr 12, 2013, 11:15 PM EDT

    Atlanta Braves v Miami Marlins

    Yeah, it’s early and yeah, Justin Upton isn’t going to post Ruthian offensive stats for an entire season, but the initial results on the trade between the D-Backs and Braves isn’t exactly even. Upton is tied for the Major League lead in homers with six and is looking like a tour de force in the…

  21. Diamondbacks top Cardinals in 16-inning marathon

    Apr 4, 2013, 3:27 AM EDT

    St Louis Cardinals v Arizona Diamondbacks

    No one told Josh Collmenter and Mitchell Boggs that it’s too early in the season for games to be lasting past 3 a.m. It took nearly 5 1/2 hours, but the Diamondbacks edged the Cardinals 10-9 in 16 innings Wednesday to claim two out of three in the opening series in Arizona. Cliff Pennington singled…
