The Diamondbacks’ rotation looks, uh, pretty iffy going into 2015.

With Kirk Gibson gone, a look at what’s next for the Diamondbacks.

Matt Garza doesn’t hit many batters, but the right-hander managed to hit Andrew McCutchen twice in his start on Saturday.

Which makes absolutely no friggin’ sense at all.

It was only a matter of time. And that time has come.

Some late inning Yankee heroics keep them in the playoff hunt.

If you had money on “Shane Greene and Chris Capuano would go back-to-back shutting down the Detroit Tigers in August, keeping the Yankees in the playoff picture,” the casino management would like to have a word with you.

Sounds to me like Tony La Russa is blaming the victim. Or else he’s simply writing more rules in the great Unwritten Rule Book.
Aug 6, 2014, 9:53 AM EDT
But really, it’s totally possible to be angry at the Dbcaks over this regardless of the damage it caused.
Aug 3, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT
And don’t stop there.

Between now and Opening Day, HardballTalk will take a look at each of baseball’s 30 teams, asking the key questions, the not-so-key questions, and generally breaking down their chances for the 2014 season.

Starter Bronson Arroyo inked a two-year, $23.5 million deal with the Diamondbacks on Friday. The signing displaced two pitchers in the D-Backs’ system: 2011 first-rounder Archie Bradley and Randall Delgado, one of the players acquired from the Braves in January 2013’s Justin Upton trade. The rotation can more or less be written in ink with…

The Angels aren’t buyers and the Diamondbacks aren’t sellers, but it seems they might be able to help each other out by doing an Ian Kennedy deal. Both CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman and FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal have mentioned the possibility. The Padres are also in the running, says MLB.com’s Steve Gilbert. With Brandon McCarthy (shoulder)…

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…

23-year-old lefty Patrick Corbin has earned the fifth spot in the Diamondbacks’ starting rotation, reports Steve Gilbert on Twitter. His first start still has not been scheduled yet — he could pitch Saturday in Milwaukee, or flip him with Wade Miley, giving him the Friday start in the series opener. Corbin had been battling Randall…

Arizona has reassigned top prospect Tyler Skaggs to Triple-A, leaving Patrick Corbin and Randall Delgado to battle for the final spot in the rotation. Skaggs started six games for the Diamondbacks in August and September last season, but he’s only 21 years old and has just nine Triple-A starts under his belt. Baseball America ranked…

It was a pretty full weekend in Arizona. And yes, I took that picture of Matt Harrison. Kinda proud of it. I left Tempe Diablo Stadium on Friday afternoon and decided to get some food and a drink. I ended up getting that plus a poor man’s Raymond Carver story out of it, so that…

According to the Associated Press, Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson announced today that right-hander Ian Kennedy will get the ball on Opening Day against the Cardinals on April 1. The choice doesn’t come as a big surprise, as this will be Kennedy’s third straight Opening Day assignment. The 28-year-old right-hander went 15-12 with a 4.02 ERA…
