Arizona Diamondbacks Morning Links: Hale Unhappy With Team After Sunday’s Loss

By Joseph Jacquez

Good Morning Dbacks fans!

After winning 3 of 4 fromt the Brewers and sweeping the Seattle Mariners to begin a 10 game road trip, the Arizona Diamondbacks were on a roll having won 5 in a row. After beating the first place Houston Astros on Friday, I had a feeling that this could be a really special road trip.

Instead, the Diamondbacks just didn’t compete very well in games 2 and 3 of the series and ended up taking a step back heading to Washington D.C. to take on the first place Washington Nationals for 4 games before heading home to face the Reds.

It was a dissapointing 2 games for the Dbacks who need to get on another long winning streak to sneak in with a wild card spot. The Snakes have done it once, so they can do it again, but its clear that a team meeting is needed to fire up this team and get their energy level back.

The stretch run is when the energy level needs to be at its peak and right now this team doesn’t have it.

With that in mind here are today’s morning links!
