Dave Stewart is the gift that keeps on giving. Former Arizona Diamondbacks general manager has been a quote machine since getting canned from the position earlier this week.

Dave Stewart on being fired by D-Backs: ‘Quite frankly, I’ve got better things to do’

The Arizona Diamondbacks wasted no time showing displeasure in their awful 2016 season (69-93 record), as they fired general manager Dave Stewart and manager Chip Hale on Monday, one day after the season ended. The move to fire Hale was fairly surprising, as he wasn’t the reason the Diamondbacks were bad. The 2016 Diamondbacks wouldn’t have had close to a .500 record even if...

Diamondbacks miss playoffs for fifth straight season

PHOENIX (AP) The Arizona Diamondbacks had reason to believe their four-year run of mediocrity would end this season, maybe even lead to a playoff berth. The Diamondbacks lured Zack Greinke to the desert, bolstered their pitching staff even more with the acquisition of Shelby Miller and had all those young, talented players coming back. Why not think big? Instead, Arizona fell flat...
