  • Mark Melancon is the 5th straight dud at closer for the Diamondbacks

    Photo by Ron Schwane/Getty Images Melancon’s performance in close and non-save situations has taken him out of the closer’s role in the bullpen, making it the 5th straight failure for a buy-low closer signing. The closer role has been nothing short of a roller coaster ride for the Arizona Diamondbacks under the Mike Hazen regime. Every year the D-backs have turned to a different pitcher for the 9th inning, with Fernando Rodney being the only successful closer back in...

  • Diamondbacks 5, Giants 0

    Photo by Thearon W. Henderson/Getty Images Sometimes all you need is a breath of fresh air. Stone Garrett is providing that and more as the D-backs took down the Giants in the finale. Looking at Stone Garrett’s stats for the year, you wonder why he wasn’t called up earlier. But a closer look saw a hitter struggling a bit since the start of August. You’d certainly not notice it with how he’s attacked some really good Giants pitchers the last two games, but in 14 August...

But I wouldn’t miss Stone Garrett’s MLB debut for much. He’s not Corbin Carroll, but he’s a great story. If you haven’t seen the video of him calling his parents to share the great news, stop reading, go find it, then come back. Tonight’s game comes after two disappointing ones. The goal now is a simple...

I could have watched a couple of movies. Improved my mind by reading. Rammed my head repeatedly into a concrete bollard. All of them would have been more entertaining than this suck-fest. The D-backs were one strike away from getting their first 1-0 road win in more than seven years. The last had...
