While the Arizona Diamondbacks have only been gone a week it seems a lot longer than that. Part of the reason might be the fact that the Diamondbacks went 1-3 against the Milwaukee Brewers and 2-1 against the Chicago Cubs making the trip 3-4.

The Diamondbacks offense still seems to be dragging in the mud with hits being more valuable than a Todd McFarlane mini-figurine stadium giveaway. The one positive seems to be that whenever the Diamondbacks lost so did the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres.
