As the saying goes, fortune favors the bold. Teams who make deep playoff runs don’t get there by not making at least one or two bold decisions. Maybe that’s make the big trade, go after a big-time free agent, or promote a prospect early on into the season. With the Arizona Diamondbacks coming off an NL Pennant run, now might be the best time to splurge on the market and sign at least one bold free agent.
That’s the kind of free agent targets I want to look at today: ones that would be bold for the Diamondbacks. One or two big additions could be the difference between falling out of October in round one or making it back to the World Series and potentially winning it.
