      Diamondbacks 1B Paul Goldschmidt staying productive at season's end

      Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt went 2 for 3 with a double, an RBI and two runs scored in a win over the Rockies on Thursday. Goldy just continues to get it done, adding his 38th double and 107th RBI on the season in this game. All the numbers across the board are ridiculous for the first baseman and he's making a strong case for MVP, albeit his team being below .500. No first baseman provides the power, speed, and average combo that Goldy does and that makes him immensely valuable going into next season.

      D-Backs 1B Paul Goldschmidt smacks 30th home run of season Tuesday

      Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt went 2 for 4 with his 30th home run of the season Tuesday in a win over the Dodgers. Goldschmidt tops the 30 home run mark for the second time in his career. While his .286/.409/.488 line in the second half represents a swoon only compared to his first half dominance, it's worth remembering that he only played 109 games due to injury last year, so fatigue may be a factor as he closes out the season. With six more runs scored, Goldschmidt can join Jose Bautista (and eventually Bryce Harper) as the only hitters this year with more than 30 home runs, 100 runs, RBI, and walks.

      Diamondbacks 1B Paul Goldschmidt collects two hits Friday

      Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt went 2 for 2 with two walks and a run scored in a 2-0 win over San Francisco on Friday. The on-base percentage continues to rise for the All-Star first baseman, as he is now at .435. Over the last 11 games, Goldy has been in a bit of a mini-slump, as he's hitting just .263 with one home run and three RBI. In any case, he's still having an MVP-type season and may be in line to be the number one pick in fantasy next year.

      Paul Goldschmidt powers D-Backs to victory with two homers

      Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt wasn't going to stay quiet for long. The MVP candidate broke out of a slump in a big way on Saturday, as he went 4 for 5 in the 11-7 win over the Reds. Goldschmidt hit two home runs, drove in four runs, scored three and even stole a base, as he filled up the box score on Saturday. He launched a two-run home run in the first inning to give the D-Backs an early 3-0 lead. He added another two-run shot in the seventh, giving him 24 longballs on the year. He also stole his 20th base, giving him his first-career 20-20 season. Goldschmidt had gone 22 games since his previous home run, which came back on July 27.
