Diamondbacks Off Today, Still Underdogs


I can’t help but think the Arizona Diamondbacks are still underdogs to the day off.  That are that bad right now.

As they head east to Cincinnati to play the Reds, I had the time to search around and see what others are saying about the hapless Dbacks.

Steve Gilbert from mlb.com wrote today on Dbacks.com that he thinks the Dbacks are going to try to make a move before the All-Star break.  Other than Justin Upton and Dan Haren, who do they have to bargain with?

Fanster.com calls the Dbacks the Bad News Bears

Scott Bordow from The East Valley Tribune says that the Dbacks lead leading 71 errors are inexcusable and this season is shaping up to be the worst in their history. That’s saying a lot after their 2004 finish of 111 losses.

Andrew Bagnato from the AP in the USA TODAY said that manager A.J. Hinch held fielding practice on Sunday for the “Bumbling” Dbacks not as a punishment, but rather for “maintenance”.  Now he says, maybe it’s time for punishment after yesterday’s performance.

Clearly, no one is impressed with the 2009 Diamondbacks.
