March: 1-1

The Diamondbacks, unfortunately, open the season on the road.  What is more unfortunate than that is that they have to go up against the juggernaut Dodgers in their first series.  A Dodgers team that a season ago, won 111 games and boasted a record of 57-24 at home.  Yikes!  As much as the odds looked stacked against Arizona, I see the Diamondbacks winning 1 of their two games in March…

April: 12-15

Mark your calendars!  April 7 is the D-Backs home opener!  Tickets are on sale now so before you continue reading, go buy your ticket!

For the Diamondbacks, 18 of their 27 April games will come against opponents who had a winning record in 2022.  The biggest threats they will face in the month of April present themselves as 6 games against the Dodgers and a tough 3-game road series against the Cardinals.  There are some favorable matchups however as the D-Backs have a 3-game road series against the Rockies, and 3-game home series against the Royals.  Both teams were the bottom dwellers of their respective divisions last season.  With 14 home games and 13 road games, I see this team going 8-6 at home and 7-6 on the road.  This team will be tested right out the gate, we shall see how they respond…

May: 17-10

If the D-Backs want to make the postseason, this is the month they need to catch fire.  The Diamondbacks will play 27 games in the month of May; 16 of those games will be at home while 11 will be on the road.  In this span, Arizona will have a 10-game home stand and a 9-game road trip.  Looking at the schedule, I believe the Diamondbacks will go 10-6 at home, and 7-4 on the road.  In the month of May, the D-Backs will only face 1 team that a season ago had a winning percentage over .500 (Phillies).  As the Arizona boys enter May, destiny will be looking at them in the face, let’s hope they don’t blink.

June: 14-13

Heading into July I have the D-Backs at 44-39; 5 games over .500, not too shabby.  In the month of June, the D-Backs will play 27 times.  14 home games, and 13 away games.  Some tough tests include home series against the Braves, Phillies, and Guardians.  All 3 of these teams made the postseason a year ago and all 3 of these teams got better in the offseason.  The Braves added one of the best catchers in the game in Sean Murphy.  The Phillies broke the bank to get arguably the best shortstop in baseball in Trea Turner.  The Guardians added some much-needed pop to their lineup by adding 1B Josh Bell and C Mike Zunino. 

I have the D-Backs going 7-7 at home and 7-6 on the road in the month of June...

July: 10-14

Another tough stretch of games as the D-Backs approach the all-star break.  In the month of July Arizona will face the Mets, Blue Jays, Cardinals, and Mariners.  Once again, all those teams made the postseason in 2022.  This Arizona team is scrappy though and I am confident they will find ways to win ball games.  Despite that, unfortunately, I don’t have them with a winning record in this month.  But hey, hopefully, we see some familiar faces in the midsummer classic!

I have the D-Backs going 5-7 both at home and on the road in the month of July...

August: 14-13

We have reached the dog days of summer!  The time of year when injuries start piling up and division races start heating up…

The D-Backs will play 27 games in the month of August.  11 home games and 16 away games.  Looking at how things are aligned, I feel the D-Bakcs will go 7-4 at home and 7-9 on the road.  The MLB was not kind when making Arizona’s schedule.  In this month, the D-Backs face the Twins, Padres, Dodgers, and Rangers; All teams who have a legitimate shot at the postseason for 2023.  Who knows, maybe this young Arizona team will surprise us.  They definitely have the pieces of the puzzle to do so, maybe this will be a magical season for Arizona.

September: 17-11

We have arrived; the last month of the season!  (I added the one game in October to the monthly record).  Ah yes, September; a sad yet exciting time for fans of contenders.  Not wanting the regular season to end but anticipating the postseason.  September, an absolute relief for teams who are way out of the playoff picture.  After posting an impressive 17-11 record to end the year, where do the D-Backs stand?  85-77, right in the thick of the wildcard race…

Final Record: 85-77

Last season the Brewers went 86-76 and just missed the playoffs.  If the D-Backs were to go 85-77, they might suffer the same fate…

But hey, winning 85 games after winning 74 a season ago is nothing to scoff at.  I know potential is the dumbest word in the English dictionary, but this team full of up-and-coming stars has so much of it.  There are many players fans should be excited to watch this year: Corbin Carroll, Zac Gallen, Alek Thomas, Jake McCarthy, Gabriel Moreno, and Christian Walker to name a few.  Who knows, this team may surprise some people, and if they make it to the post-season you better believe they are equipped to make a run…
