Diamondbacks Trade for Segura: When Does This Team Want to Win?

“We think that our time is now. Obviously, with the way ownership has stepped up, we’re putting the effort towards trying to get it done now.” This quote from Arizona Diamondbacks general manager Dave Stewart during a conference call with reporters at last December’s Winter Meetings not only sums up the current philosophy of the front office, but it explains every transaction...

You Should Believe In David Peralta

So I’m sitting here, passing a Wednesday afternoon by scrolling through players Steamer thinks are going to be worse. Most of the time, I get it. Yoenis Cespedes, sure — last year, he had almost everything go right. With Francisco Lindor, I understand bat-related skepticism. I see why a projection system thinks Joe Panik will take a step back, and the same goes for Justin Turner...

The confounding, fascinating Arizona Diamondbacks

The Diamondbacks are weird. Well, maybe weird isn’t the best word. “Compelling,” “fascinating,” and “head-scratching” also could work. Arizona seems to operate under their own set of rules, and Dave Stewart and Tony La Russa don’t care how the moves they make are perceived. Over the last year alone, some of those moves include: Trading away Touki Toussaint, their...

An Inconclusive Exploration of Paul Goldschmidt’s Passivity

I don’t believe I’m out of line when I say that, of life’s most enjoyable pleasures, many are to be used, collected, consumed, or practiced in moderation. “You can have too much of a good thing,” they say. Food and alcohol, for example. Both delightful. Both substances which, were I unaware of the consequences of surplus consumption, I would regularly consume in excess...

2016 Fantasy Baseball: Arizona Diamondbacks Team Preview

Arizona has been busy this offseason, bringing in Zack Greinke and Shelby Miller to make a formidable top three in its rotation along with Patrick Corbin. They did lose one intriguing offensive fantasy asset in Ender Inciarte, whom they traded for Miller, but the D’Backs just brought in Jean Segura to try and recoup some of that lost offense. That won’t happen, but the desert...

Howie Kendrick, Jean Segura, and Arizona’s Latest Mistake

Over the weekend, the Dodgers and Diamondbacks made a pair of related transactions. On Friday night, after failing to find a suitor due to the specter of a potential lost draft choice, Howie Kendrick re-signed with the Dodgers for a relative pittance; $20 million over the next two years. Given that Kendrick turned down the qualifying offer, which would have guaranteed him $15.8 million...

Arizona Diamondbacks: Offseason in Review

A lot has changed since the Arizona Diamondbacks won their first, and only, World Series in 2001. While the organization is still relatively young, established in 1998, the team has struggled to remain consistent and has been unable to put together a winning record since 2011. That was also the last year that the team made the playoffs, but fear not Diamondbacks fans, 2016 will be...

'Big day': D-backs' Marshall returns to mound for first time since fracturing skull

Diamondbacks reportedly trying to trade Aaron Hill

The Arizona Diamondbacks appear to be fed up with the Hill Street Blues. According to a report by Jon Heyman of MLB Network on Sunday, the team is trying to trade second baseman Aaron Hill but may encounter difficulty getting a deal done considering that a wealth of better middle infield options are currently on the market.

Arizona Diamondbacks Can’t Wait To Extend Superstar A.J. Pollock

Arbitration season has officially come and gone and like most baseball fans I am glad its over. My team, the Arizona Diamondbacks agreed with seven of the team’s eight arbitration-eligible players. Right-hander Shelby Miller will make $4.35 million in 2016 as the no.2 starter behind Zack Greinke. Patrick Corbin ($2.525 million), Rubby De La Rosa […]

Nick Ahmed on Dave Stewart and the State of the Arizona Diamondbacks

“Our goal isn’t to improve in the win column. Our goal is to get to the postseason and compete for a World Series this year.” Sounds like words a seasoned veteran might relay to the rookies coming into Spring Training, no? Maybe, but not this time. In fact, those are the words of 25-year old Nick […]

Necessary Moves: Daniel Hudson, Arizona Diamondbacks

Over the next 30 days, I’ll look at 30 players—one from each team—that I believe should be traded, but more along the lines of a “what if” scenario. Some will seem obvious, just as others will seem nonsensical. Some may also seem desperate, but it’s important to understand that this list is entirely subjective and made up solely of notable names. A player can be deemed...

The Day Arizona Shocked the Baseball World

Somewhere, Johnny Cueto is smiling widely, just waiting for his agent to give him a call. Somehow, David Price got one more year and less money than the pitcher we’re about to talk about, but he can opt out after three seasons, so we may be looking at a similar situation after all. We must have all thought it was a little adorable when it was reported Sunday night that Cueto had...

Zack Greinke signs with Diamondbacks in stunner

All reports indicated Zack Greinke was going to make a decision regarding his free agency by the end of the week. He made good on that. But one thing Greinke did that caught us all off guard was choose the Arizona Diamondbacks, a team that really hadn’t been considered a contender for his services. Yet the D-Backs pulled off a stunner with one of their biggest signings in franchise...

Arizona #DbacksEvolution takes uniforms to a different level

In addition to their backs, Arizona now has diamonds on their shoulders, hats and pants. Last night, the Diamondbacks became the second team to announce new uniforms this offseason as they at least slightly changed their entire line for the upcoming 2016 season. As stated during the exhibition at Chase Field, the Diamondbacks spent the first nine years in the desert in purple and...

Diamondbacks, Johnny Cueto both better off with no deal

News surfaced on Sunday that the Arizona Diamondbacks offered free agent starter Johnny Cueto a six year contract worth $120 million and that he subsequently declined that offer. My initial reaction was, “Wow that’s nuts.” I meant that for both sides. It seemed like a poor use of funds to allocate so much money to one starter that isn’t an ace and maybe not even a strong...

Diamondbacks have many suitors, but little interest in moving Pollock

If you claim that you knew who A.J. Pollock was at this time last year and you live outside of the Mojave Desert, you are probably lying. But if you don’t know him now, you must not follow baseball too closely. The MVP candidate and 2015 All-Star and Gold Glover broke onto the scene with a .315/.367/.498 line this year, astounding fans with 39 steals, 20 home runs, and great play...

Did the Arizona Diamondbacks Have a Successful Season?

Over the past few years the Diamondbacks, somewhat like the Padres in the winter leading up to the 2015 season, have made trade after trade. Not in a “Billy Beane is a genius” or “Dave Dombrowski sure can sell prospects at the right time” way. It was trading for a type of character player possibly involving grit and hustle. And their best performance over the past few years...
