Nick Ahmed.....boy is he upset.
Nick - try not going 2-18 in last 5 games, including two game ending strikeouts with the bases loaded first.
When you wish upon a star . . .
I'd bet that it's the same thing that has Lamb hitting worse than most pitchers . . .
Torey's proclamation (that I've posted before) that he wants players (speaking about
Lamb) who hit the ball into the air.
Lovullo has the ability to lead a winner . . . or create a loser. And we see the results.
And how it has now decimated the roster.
My guess would be that he didn't like being left behind in the fire sale.
But Nick has regressed. Even sometimes in the field.
He has no basis for being disappointed.
Exactly. This dude has no credibility as he is part of the problem.
A HUGE part of the problem...to the point I would argue Nick Ahmed is a cancer...
I never liked settling on Ahmed as our SS. I posted that at the time.
Even when his hitting went from horrible to marginal.
I would much rather have seen Ketel stay with his natural position of
SS. It would have been much easier to find a second baseman.
SS to 2B and, now, talk about CF again. Sometimes! That is showing
disrespect for a player. Especially one who has turned into a star.
And, by moving our second best RBI man last season (Ketel) to
leadoff. And then moving him to second in the lineup. And now
he is not an RBI producer, on a team that scores 1 run per game.
I'll say it again. Torey Lovullo has the shortest attention span of any
manager in the Majors. BADD -- Baseball Attention Deficit Disorder.
Oh, this was about Ahmed. The few guys Torey tends to stick with
are the ones who underperform. Like he did with Lamb.
Still hate thinking about our deal to send SS Dansby Swanson to Atlanta for SP Shelby Miller......Miller is and was a total bust as Swanson gets better every year....
Total bust, but that was Dave Stewart
I think that was more TLR than Stewart. La Russa brought in Stewart who had never been a GM so that he could make all his bone headed moves and be the scapegoat.

Nick Ahmed on #Dbacks GM Mike Hazen basically admitting yesterday this season isn't working "That's infuriating. Hopefully Mike (Hazen) stops making comments like that. That pisses me off as a player... There's no one with that attitude in this clubhouse."
From the looks of it, everyone in the clubhouse has that attitude, including Nick Ahmed...
It rolls downhill. How could it not?
It is demoralizing for the fans to watch. How could it not be for the players to live it?
Now that, as you pointed out, Ketel is on the DL as soon as the old, tired routine of
moving him back and forth from 2B to CF. And the dysfunctional Manager not being
How happy we were to have two Marte's . . . and now we have none. Responsibility
needs to be pinpointed (before he does even more damage).
