2009 Regular Season

The New Schedule Is Here!

It used to be that I would spend days dredging through the bowels of the Internet during the off-season trying to piece together what the season schedule would look like for the upcoming year. Major League Baseball never wanted to announce their schedule until after the first of the year making it a mad scramble to come up with details to post to sites such as Now Hitting. Beginning last season Major League Baseball decided to announce the...

Chris Crossed

There is probably no Arizona Diamondbacks player who should be looking forward to the end of the 2009 season than center fielder Chris Young. Young has unfairly become the poster child for all that went wrong this season for the Diamondbacks. As the season began Young was being counted on to lead the group of core young outfielders to help the Arizona Diamondbacks rebound from a disappointing second place finish in the National League West to...

State of the Home Stand Address – September 7-13

When Brewers closer Trevor Hoffman (that still seems so strange to not type San Diego there) got Stephen Drew to fly out to left field to end the game; the Diamondbacks completed their six-game home stand. The Diamondbacks left the not so friendly confines of Chase Field and embarked on a short three-game road trip to San Diego. This is the last trip to San Diego this season for the Diamondbacks and gives the team an opportunity to try and pull...

Circle K Hot Dog Races

Circle K Hot Dog Races

There are times that I just have to stop and shake my head at how odd my life is. Regardless of how many times I keep telling myself that I lead a normal and uneventful life, somehow strange and bizarre things just keep happening. What is even funnier is how the strange and unusual now seems to invade other strange and unusual aspects of my life making it seem even more surreal. Friday night as I was in the midst of the most incredible...

Augie, Augie, Augie

One of the unheralded benefits of being an Arizona Diamondbacks season ticket holder is the fact that you are allowed to get into the stadium 30 minutes before the general public for Saturday home games. You wouldn’t think that would be a big deal but on days like today it is a godsend. Today was supposed to be Tony Pena bobble head day according to the Arizona Diamondbacks promotional schedule that was released before the season began. That of...

Am I Dying?

Am I Dying?

There comes a time in everyone’s life when they have to come to grips with their own mortality. When we are young we think we are invincible and that we will live forever. As we get older we realize that we aren’t nearly as indestructible as we thought we were and by middle age we are paying the price for the follies of our youth. We still try to hold on to the notion that we are not old and we have years and years to live. Then there comes an...

Officer, I Saw the Whole Thing

As a diehard Arizona Diamondbacks fan I go to a lot of games. According to my wife that may be the largest understatement she has heard this century. Ok let me rephrase that, I go to a whole lot of games. Having gone to so many games over the 12 year history of the Arizona Diamondbacks there are times that I think I have probably seen just about everything there is to see at a baseball game. I have watched a no-hitter, I have seen a perfect...

Diamondbacks All-Time Nine

Baseball will forever be connected with the number nine. From the fact that there are nine positions on the field to there being 27 outs in a game to the bases being spaced 90 feet apart there is always a number nine involved when you are talking about baseball. To celebrate the numerology equivalent of a perfect game, Major League Baseball is introducing something they are calling the All-Time Nine for each team. The All-Time Nine allows fans...

Hanging the Garland

Last Monday the Arizona Diamondbacks sent right-handed pitcher Jon Garland to the Los Angeles Dodgers for a player to be named later. This situation became more bizarre when Jon Garland faced the Arizona Diamondbacks. Garland pitched well and beat the Diamondbacks in the last game of the series. Tomorrow Garland takes the mound for the second time as a member of the Los Angeles Dodgers and will face right-hander Dan Haren. While Jon Garland was...
