    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.

  4. Tony La Russa defends the Dbacks’ plunking of Andrew McCutchen. And it’s ridiculous.

    Aug 6, 2014, 1:00 PM EDT

    Tony La Russa

    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.

  5. A lot of people think — or want to think — the Dbacks caused Andrew McCutchen’s injury

    But really, it’s totally possible to be angry at the Dbcaks over this regardless of the damage it caused.

  6. Just fire Kirk Gibson already!

    Bryan Price, Kirk Gibson

    And don’t stop there.

  8. Randall Delgado could wind up in the D-Backs’ bullpen

    Feb 9, 2014, 9:30 PM EDT

    Randall Delgado

    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…

    Jul 31, 2013, 2:09 PM EDT

    Ian Kennedy

    2:09 p.m. EDT: The Padres are getting Kennedy in return for Thatcher, right-hander Matt Stiles and their post-second round competitive balance pick in the 2014 draft, according to MLB.com’s Corey Brock. 1:52 p.m. EDT update: The Arizona Republic’s Nick Piecoro reports that San Diego and Arizona are close to an agreement. The Diamondbacks would get…

  11. Angels bid for Diamondbacks’ Ian Kennedy

    Jul 30, 2013, 6:06 PM EDT

    Ian Kennedy

    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)…

  12. 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…

  13. D-Backs give fifth starter spot to Patrick Corbin

    Mar 30, 2013, 9:10 PM EDT

    Patrick Corbin

    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…

  15. Diamondbacks send top prospect Tyler Skaggs to Triple-A

    Mar 18, 2013, 12:16 PM EDT

    Arizona Diamondbacks  v San Diego Padres

    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…

  16. Two Days in the Valley

    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…

  17. Diamondbacks name Ian Kennedy as Opening Day starter

    Feb 25, 2013, 7:02 PM EDT

    Ian Kennedy

    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…

  18. The Mets were seriously in on Justin Upton

    Feb 25, 2013, 10:30 AM EDT

    Justin Upton

    In the middle of this John Harper column lamenting the state of the Mets outfield, we learn what the Mets were trying to do to improve it: Alderson wouldn’t go into details, but from all indications there was a time in mid-to-late January when he felt strongly that he was going to land either Justin Upton or Michael…

  19. The Arizona Diamondbacks and Martin Prado agree to a four-year, $40 million deal

    Martin Prado Getty

    The Arizona Diamondbacks have just announced a four-year, $40 million extension with third baseman Martin Prado.  The deal goes through 2016, buying out his arbitration year this year and tacking three more on top. He made $4.75 million last season. His arbitration demand for this year was $7.05 million with the club countering at around…

  20. The Diamondbacks are unlikely to trade for Tigers’ right-hander Rick Porcello

    Jan 24, 2013, 8:05 PM EDT

    Rick Porcello Getty

    Bob Nightengale of USA Today reported earlier today that the Diamondbacks would try to flip prospect shortstop Nick Ahmed, one of the pieces from the Justin Upton deal, as part of a trade for Tigers’ right-hander Rick Porcello. However, Diamondbacks general manager Kevin Towers downplayed his interest in such a scenario this afternoon. Doesn't sound…

  21. Notes and thoughts on the Justin Upton trade

    Jan 24, 2013, 2:10 PM EDT

    Martin Prado

    Braves acquire OF Justin Upton and 3B Chris Johnson from Diamondbacks for 3B Martin Prado, RHP Randall Delgado, RHP Zeke Spruill, SS Nick Ahmed and 1B Brandon Drury. – As some probably guessed, I’m a big fan of this deal for the Braves. I wrote an entry trying to pair the Upton brothers in Atlanta…

  22. The Justin Upton trade: The Braves get their man, the Diamondbacks do better than expected

    Jan 24, 2013, 10:50 AM EDT

    Justin Upton AP

    Justin Upton was being dangled by the Diamondbacks forever, but he’s finally out the door. It’s a five-for-two deal: Braves get: (OF) Justin Upton, (3B) Chris Johnson Diamondbacks get: (3B) Martin Prado, (RHP) Randall Delgado, (SS) Nick Ahmed, (RHP) Zeke Spruill, and (1B) Brandon Drury. For all the talk that the Diamondbacks’ leverage was gone when Upton…

  23. UPDATE: The Braves have acquired Justin Upton for Martin Prado, Randall Delgado and prospects

    Jan 24, 2013, 9:49 AM EDT

    upton, justin (getty)

    UPDATE: The return is … interesting. Mark Bowman reports that the Braves are getting not just Justin Upton, but Chris Johnson as well. In return, Atlanta is sending them Martin Prado, Randall Delgado, shortstop prospect Nick Ahmed and starting pitcher Zeke Spruill. Much bigger trade than expected. We’ll break it down shortly. UPDATE: Jon Heyman reports…

    Jan 24, 2013, 8:23 AM EDT

    Justin Upton AP

    Yesterday Buster Olney reported that the Braves and Diamondbacks were in serious negotiations about Justin Upton. Now we have some backfill from Ken Rosenthal and David O’Brien about where that stands. From O’Brien, on the kind of haul the Diamondbacks may get: Confirmed that #Braves have indeed made offer to Dbacks for Justin Upton. I…
