If there were ever a holiday that summed up the season the Arizona Diamondbacks have endured; it would have to be Labor Day. This team has battled and struggled for five months trying to find a way to win a ball game. Each night they seem as though they are looking for a new way to lose rather than win.
This season gives Diamondbacks fans a glimpse into the life of a Chicago Cubs fan. I am not yet ready to throw in the towel and begin referring to the Diamondbacks as “lovable losers” but a few more seasons like this one is going to make me start looking for possible curses and try to find radical solutions to try to reverse the team’s outcome.
