Just two short weeks ago or in the case of impatient Diamondbacks fans two excruciatingly long weeks ago the gates to Chase Field opened and another season was ushered in. Amid the pomp and circumstance of Opening Day we got our first look at the Arizona Diamondbacks as they took on the Colorado Rockies to begin what everyone hoped would be a play-off run. The game would see the return of Brandon Webb who many including myself believed was the real Cy Young Award winner last season if the voters would have been consistent in how they voted. The game would see the Diamondbacks hitters jump out early and often chasing Rockies starting pitcher Aaron Cook from the game after just 2 innings. The game featured a glimpse of the power that the Diamondbacks hitters are capable of and gave hope to everyone in attendance that this was going to be a fun and exciting year.
