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.
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.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.
Diamondbacks reach new low, lose MLB record 23rd consecutive road game: 6 stats that define ugly streak (yahoo.com)-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.
