I rushed to the Internet and navigated my browser to Google. There I frantically entered the search terms “interplanetary, disaster, misalignment, impending doom”. I half expected the number one result to come back with the address www.diamondbacks.com followed by a link to NASA that told of a rogue asteroid that is streaking towards the earth that would collide with the planet making us as extinct as the dinosaurs. There really was no other explanation for tonight’s game. The gravitational pull of the earth had somehow become misaligned causing changes to the ocean tides and disrupting the magnetic poles of the planet. I appreciate that neither Bob Melvin nor Doug Davis wanted to use this as an excuse but the facts remained that there had to be some sort of outside force that had caused Davis to pitch the way he did in tonight’s game.
