Diamondbacks News

Destined for Mediocrity

By Scott Allen

I sure hope that doesn’t ring true.  However, by the end of the 2009 season, don’t be surprised that the Diamondbacks are right around .500.

It seems every time the sports news comes on lately, the Dbacks are getting blown out.  Sure it’s only spring training and the records mean nothing.  However it does provide a glimpse into what may be expected come April 6th going forward.

Over the past week, the Dbacks are 2-4 and have scored 39 runs and have had 39 runs scored against them.  They’ve have victories of 11-3 and 14-6, but losses of 10-7, 6-1, 6-3, and 8-3.  Then prior to that, losses included scores of 16-3 and 19-4, being outscored 55-19 in a four game stretch.  Ughh, this could be a long season.  Let’s hope the Dbacks players have short memories.
