The Arizona Diamondbacks pretty much called it a season during this home stand, going 1-5, culminating in a 3 game sweep at the hands of the Milwaukee Brewers. Today they lost 5-3 after nursing a 7th inning 2-1 lead. With Friday and Saturday’s game less than competitive on the Dbacks part, it looked like they might finish the series on a high note. Not so much.
Right now, it just appears everyone in the Dbacks organization is trying to get to October 4th as quickly as possible and I don’t blame them – much. However they still have paying fans coming to the games and just really aren’t being competitve and that is disappointing.
Now the Dbacks go on a quick three game trip to San Diego then come home for their last home stand of the season. Thank God. I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty tired of watching a young team not only go through its stuggles, but also nurse it’s injuries and watch their lack of care for the game and its fans. Just try – that’s all we ask and I don’t feel like they are trying very much at all these days.
