Arizona Diamondbacks have reached the Dog Days of Summer

Well Folks, we have hit the dog days of summer. That’s right, we are into August already! The Arizona Diamondbacks have had a tough season this year. They are 33-73 so far and are competing for the #1 pick in next year’s rookie draft. However, that doesn’t mean the players have given up on the season, nor should you fans!

Remember in 2020 and how badly we wanted baseball to be back? Well, I’m never taking live baseball and my Diamondbacks playing a full season for granted again! Yes, this is a rough year but imagine being the players and coaches right now. I am sure not a single player on that team is enjoying losing right now, neither is Torey or the coaching staff.

My heart breaks to see the Diamondbacks be mocked and laughed at over how bad they have played this year, yet, instead of giving up on the team, I’m gonna commit even harder to them. We just saw how amazing it feels to watch the Phoenix Suns in the post season go on to reach the finals.  We are already seeing the fruit of all Mike Hazen’s handiwork starting to ripen with more and more of our top prospects hitting the Majors. Ketel is now back and our starters are all finally healthy, so let’s see how the team performs in August and use that to evaluate just how good this team could’ve been!

Congratulations to Drew Ellis!

Not only did you make your big league debut, but you got your first hit this past weekend! Way to go. Excited to see what you can do with the Diamondbacks and looking forward to seeing you play live soon!

What’s on tap for the Diamondbacks this week!

The Arizona Diamondbacks play all seven days this week giving you loads of baseball action. The 1st place San Francisco Giants are in town for four games to finish this homestand for the Diamondbacks. Then, the D-backs head into San Diego to take on the Tatis-less Padres for a three-game weekend stand.

Let’s enjoy the rest of this season and remember how it felt when the Suns made the playoffs!  The D-backs will be right back in the playoffs a lot sooner than you think.
