of course it ends up killing him. terrible pitch to awful ass Chris Young. hanger
The defensive alignment/play didn't help there.

they claimed him off waivers. I still don't think he's that special though. good minor leaguer, won't translate to the Majors.

I apologize if someone has said this already, but why exactly did we release Josh Whitesell?

He's put up crazy numbers in AAA for AZ since we released him.

I may be wrong but we chose to keep Broadway instead of Whitesell since we had extra depht at 1B. I don't think it was a good decision since Whitesel is the superior hitter but we will see the guy recently turned 27.

go sit down Upton. I'm not impressed at all with him. free swinging hack just like the rest of the bums on the D-backs.

Hey D'Backs: "Got Eckstein?"

They could use a good hitting coach to teach them how to see the ball and be patient.

Wow.  I was just going to comment on something like "why is Whitesell hitting fifth in a big league lineup?" and then I looked at 6 thru 9.

The D'Backs are an awful team this year.  Weren't some people here saying we should model our franchise after them in order to justify "the plan"?  So much for that...

Dukes, Kearns, Flores.  Sounds like runs to me.
