When the Diamondbacks were awful, we couldn't beat them.
Maybe them being good will help us turn the tables.

Only sign Aaron Hicks if he can pitch.

Tiniest of kudos for not letting them blow the game fully open yet.

He’s a better left fielder than Schwarber sitting in his car.

Sure, but Hicks' .260 OBP would get old really quick.

This offense is feeble against soft-tossing lefties. Really dumb approach. Same stupid swings y right handed hitters. Cannot lay off bad sliders. Just incredible

I'm not going to defend him, but I'll also say this offense is so bad right now that they can't afford to bench Schwarber. Lightning in a bottle is about their only hope most nights.

I know he's pitched "OK" but he's trash at the back of the pen and you cannot use Hoffman there in a one-run game.
