This period on the MLB calendar is usually considered the dead point of the offseason because for teams like the Arizona Diamondbacks, nothing significant is going to happen until after the World Series ends.
With that in mind, we are all baseball fans, and even though the D-backs aren’t competing for a World Series title, October baseball and the drama that comes with it is always exciting.
Here is your Arizona Diamondbacks Daily Dose with links and my thoughts on the biggest stories concerning the D-backs and the rest of MLB.

Around the MLB:
My Thoughts: The Mets have a better and deeper rotation than the Cubs and that is why they are winning this series. Matt Harvey was dominant in Game 1 and Noah Syndergaard followed up that performance with a dominating effort of his own. Jon Lester and Jake Arrieta weren’t.
My Thoughts: This only serves the Mets well. Lester hasn’t been at his best this season or in October, but we have seen him perform his best when the lights are shining the brightest and when everything is on the line.
My Thoughts: Harvey is going to have to pitch with pain because the Mets can’t afford not to start the Dark Knight. It’s non-negotiable at this point.
