When a team starts a losing streak, you naturally assume it is going to only last a game or two before the players make adjustments and find a way to scratch out a win. Getting swept in a three game series once or twice a season is about the worst it can get or so you hope.

I’ll be the first to admit that was just begging for a subject to write about that did not include talking about the current losing streak the Arizona Diamondbacks are in. We are slowly approaching historical levels of consecutive losses and I just can’t bring myself into thinking about writing yet another article on how or why the team lost another game. I feel like I have died and been reincarnated a Chicago Cubs fan.

The Arizona Diamondbacks are firmly ensconced in the cellar of the National League Western Division and if the current road trip is any indication they have no intention of leaving last place any time soon. Last season the team’s struggles were defined as a lack of proper coaching and injuries.

The two questions that immediately come to mind when talking about Diamondbacks pitcher Dan Haren’s 2010 season are: Why is he struggling so badly on the mound and where did this sudden offensive prowess come from?

Fresh on the heels of the announcement that The Wiggles are coming to Chase Field, the Arizona Diamondbacks announced their second post game concert. I have to admit I am a lot more excited about this one than I was the first.
Kicking off the “All-American Week-end” on July 2, the Arizona Diamondbacks announced there would be a post game concert after the Los Angeles Dodgers/Arizona Diamondbacks game featuring Hall & Oates.

In years past, the Arizona Diamondbacks have offered a series of post-game concerts bringing in musical groups to perform during a home stand. For the most part these concerts have been focused on Country music (maybe they aren’t they just seem like it).
I have to admit, I am not a Country music fan. When my radio starts playing Country I take the car to the dealership to have it repaired so having acts such as Trace Adkins and Jo Messina were pretty much lost on me.

During the finale with the Toronto Blue Jays the Diamondbacks started Tony Abreu at second base giving Kelly Johnson a much deserved day off. Toronto catcher Jose Molina came barreling into second as Abreu attempted a tag.
Abreu’s left wrist was bent backwards from the force of the large catcher’s slide. Abreu leapt back flinging his glove off obviously in a tremendous amount of pain. Diamondbacks trainers came out to look at the injury.

The Arizona Diamondbacks had just two home stands during the month of May. The first ended with the D-backs going 0-6 against the Milwaukee Brewers and the Los Angeles Dodgers. The second home stand was much different with the team going 4-1 with a two-game sweep of the San Francisco Giants and winning the just concluded series with the Toronto Blue Jays.
Diamondbacks fans were breathing just a little better at the end of this home stand. The team is now headed out for a nine-game road trip through the National League West. They begin with a three-game series against the Colorado Rockies starting tomorrow followed by three games with the San Francisco Giants and ending with three games against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

At the conclusion of the final game against the Toronto Blue Jays, the Arizona Diamondbacks held a Season Ticket Holder Town Hall meeting in the conference room adjacent to the party suite in the upper deck of Chase Field.
This meeting was open to all season ticket holders who confirmed their attendance earlier in the week. The goal of the meeting was to allow season ticket holders to interact with members of the Diamondbacks management team and ask questions about the team both on and off the field.
