After a one-year hiatus due to the pandemic, the Arizona Fall League returned to the Valley on Wednesday on a sunny, 75-degree Phoenix afternoon. A meager $9 entry fee lets you pick your own seat as you watch baseball’s top prospects clash as part of a 39-day barrage of baseball awesomeness. According to MLB.com, nearly 60 percent of Arizona Fall…...

Please have a seat. I’m sorry to call you here under these circumstances, but as you know your team, the Arizona Diamondbacks, had a really tough year. Behavioral issues aside with your players decapitating mascots, botching fly balls, and using alleged foreign substances on their pitching glove, we need to discuss the real issues that lead us to this point...

The Arizona Diamondbacks didn’t wait long to make changes to their coaching staff. On Thursday, it was reported by Nick Piecoro from the Arizona Republic and Zach Buchanan from The Athletic that only three coaches on Torey Lovullo’s staff will be retaining their same positions going into the 2022 season. “I don’t know what direction I’m going to go in...

Let’s face it: The last six months have been an unmitigated disaster for your beloved baseball franchise. No National League West team has ever finished as far out of first place as the 2021 Arizona Diamondbacks. They won fewer than half as many games as the division-winning San Francisco Giants, a team they were projected to hang with at the...

It’s over. At last. The 2021 Arizona Diamondbacks season has mercifully come to an end. While this year’s squad did not surpass the worst record in franchise history set by the 2004 D-backs, it set enough abysmal records that you could argue that this year belongs in the conversation for Arizona’s worst season. One day after winning their final game and securing the second overall pick in the 2022 MLB Amateur Draft, manager Torey Lovullo and general manager Mike Hazen met with the media for the final time on Monday, via Zoom, and did not hold back on their feelings about this season’s results. “I don’t think I’ve ever been through something this hard in my career as a player,…

As the 2021 MLB regular season winds down, the Arizona Diamondbacks find themselves in one last dubious race in which no team wants to participate. That race — as we have lovingly referred to as TANK SZN on the PHNX D-backs Podcast — is to see which team will end the year with the worst record in baseball and earn...

Since June 1, St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Paul Goldschmidt has been arguably the best position player in baseball not named Bryce Harper or Juan Soto. In that span, Goldy is slashing .326/.398/.592 with 25 homers, 70 RBI and a 165 wRC+. His 4.8 fWAR trail only the aforementioned Harper and Soto. Goldy, at 34 years old, has found it...

The Arizona Diamondbacks have decided to extend Torey Lovullo

The Arizona Diamondbacks announced on Thursday that they have extended manager Torey Lovullo through 2022 with a club option for 2023. “We’ve had a lot of conversations and we feel like Torey is still, even though all the things we’ve gone through this year, has maintained stability and structure around what we’re going to try to accomplish moving forward,” executive...

This baseball offseason, the Arizona Diamondbacks front office will take time to carefully analyze this historically bad year to determine exactly where things went wrong for this team. Injuries, managerial decisions, and player performance will all be obvious factors taken into consideration when determining how we arrived at 2021 being arguably the worst season in franchise history. But after all...

It would be a stretch to call the Arizona Diamondbacks “good” over the last decade. But there’s one thing no team in baseball has been better at in that span: defense. In fact, it’s not even close. From 2010 through 2019, the Arizona Diamondbacks posted 445 defensive runs saved (DRS). This suggests that, in the 2010s, the D-backs’ defense prevented...
