I really like the jersey concept. Hey it's a bit dull for my taste, but I've seen that style be popular.

Love that they are moving away from the super lazy pandering of the "Los" jerseys.

Anyone have an idea or theory as to why Randy Johnson is only retired player who is not available in current team jersey on all MLB merchandise sites?

It used to be you couldn't customize a jersey with a retired player (I tried multiple times and orders just got cancelled automatically) but recently jerseys for Gonzo, Matty, Jay Bell & Finley are available. Randy is only major player from championship team who jersey is not available, weird.

So things looked pretty good at the end of April, they were keeping their heads above water and there was some optimism - 14-12, .538.

Then along came May and the bottom fell out and you figured things couldn't get any worse. They'll right the ship and start playing better right? - 5-24, .172

In came June, and things haven't gotten better, they HAVE gotten worse - 1-11, .083

And we thought the 2004 team was rock bottom.......

I guess I just don't understand. Is it the front office and coaching, or is it untalented players? It seems as if our farm system is generally well regarded but yet the players they bring up don't do well. Our high draft picks seem to not do well, or we trade them away. Players we trade for always seem mediocre. We seem to trade away our best players/pitchers (Scherzer, Bauer, Corbin etc., etc.) and bring in mediocre or worse.
SMH:(:soapbox:

Is there anyone who was in the rotation on opening day healthy and pitching right now? There is probably the major issue. Then all the little things add on.

Duplantier has been ruined...if he had major league talent to begin with.

I honestly wonder if any of these pitchers they are starting each game with are ever gong tio produce because right nowthey are getting knocked around.

I think they are just trying to get through the rest of the season. They aren't going to bring up their top guys at least not this year.

This is what happens when your owner pinches pennies instead of acquiring talent during the offseason. KK and group should just sell and get out Dodge. He'll make a nice profit and can go try and be better at something else. The bar would be really low with his tenure as owner here.

-78: Run differential
Nope, the Diamondbacks haven’t come particularly close on many nights, losing by an average of at least a field goal each time out. In 20 of 23 losses, they’ve given up at least one “crooked number” inning in which multiple runs score. In five games, they’ve had three such innings. It’s hard to overstate the deflating nature of these sequences.

7: Blown leads
Yep, in nearly a third of their losses, the D-backs had ‘em right where they wanted ‘em. Heck, this streak might have stopped at four games had they held a 4-0 lead at Citi Field way back on May 7. Alas, Francisco Lindor hit a seventh-inning, two-run homer off Caleb Smith, and the Mets cashed in their ghost runner in the 10th.

It’s only gotten more demoralizing: Tuesday night, a 7-0 lead against the first-place Giants after two times at bat gradually dissipated, until Mike Yastrzemski’s eighth-inning grand slam into McCovey Cove sank Arizona, for the 21st consecutive time on the road.
