    Kinda shocked about Peralta. I remember many times going WTF Peralta after he bobbled a ball this season But what do I know, lol. I hope they both win! That would be two in a row for Peralta

    Nick Ahmed has lost the one thing that previously set him
    apart from other mediocre hitting shortstops. His fielding.

    I was vocal about not wanting to see him get the SS job and
    I feel just as strongly about it now. I hope the D-backs are
    developing a young SS to take his place.

    I would suggest moving Ketel back to his natural position of SS,
    but he's been moved around far too often over recent seasons.

    As it is he'll probably go back to moving from 2B to CF and back
    next season, just as he was when Starling was dumped almost
    as fast as he came.

    Which is, in a nutshell, why, regardless of the few games he wins,
    I believe that Torey Luvullo is hurting the team's development by
    being so short-sighted.

    Short (stop) sighted and Second Base sighted and Center Field
    sighted and Catcher sighted and Designated Hitter sighted. :)

    Five of the nine batting positions (if DH continues in the NL) --
    four of the eight, if not -- always up in the air.
