The Arizona Diamondbacks season schedule for 2009 has been very strange to say the least. It began with the world’s longest home stand that seemed to stretch through the entire month of April with the Diamondbacks having only 4 games away from Chase Field in the entire month. Now the team has embarked on a stretch where they have exactly one off day over 40 games. That amount of games in a short period of time can have a brutal effect on your team especially from a pitching perspective. Just one or two games where a starter doesn’t last long can have a ripple effect that will take a month to recover from.
