Today marked the beginning of a six game home stand for the Arizona Diamondbacks. Their first opponent is the red hot San Diego Padres who entered today’s game riding a nine game winning streak. Under the advice of my doctor I am going to restrain from writing about the game today. Neither my nerves nor my blood pressure could take a lengthy diatribe about how the Diamondbacks squandered a six run lead or how once again the team seemed to lack focus both on defense and in the batter’s box. No, I am going to instead focus on the events of the game that have a more positive feel to them. Think of this as my own personal “serenity now” moment.
