Power Rankings
Here's a fun little oddity: Dave Stewart started Game 1 of the 1988 World Series, in which he lost a win because of Kirk Gibson's legendary homer off Hall of Famer Dennis Eckersley. If Stewart is hired by the Diamondbacks as GM -- he's interviewing for it this week -- it's possible one of his first orders of business will be to fire Gibson from his managerial post.
First, Kevin Towers is shown the door. Next up, Kirk Gibson?
They lead the NL in triples with 40, and five different players have at least four.
Factoring the return for Martin Prado, the Diamondbacks have the following to show for Justin Upton (and Chris Johnson): Randall Delgado, Nick Ahmed, Brandon Drury, Zeke Spruill, Peter O'Brien and a player to be named. That seriously sounds like one of those "let's give them a handful of players we don't want for a superstar" trade scenarios you hear on local talk radio shows. And Kevin Towers did it.
David Peralta's story is far too long to tell in a blurb on power rankings, so for now let's just say I'm a huge fan and hope those who aren't familiar will do some Internet searching. It's worth taking a look.
Absolutely hate seeing Paul Goldschmidt lost for likely the rest of the season. The good news is he'll be fine next year and the injury doesn't affect a pennant race.
Giving up Adam Eaton and Tyler Skaggs for Mark Trumbo is only going to look worse as the years progress.
Riding high and only 10.5 games out of the second wild card. Screw selling, be buyers at the deadline!
I found a positive stat! The D-Backs lead the NL in triples with 26.
