On this episode, Jesse and Derek are joined by Astros beat writer Chandler Rome from the Houston Chronicle to discuss the D-backs making Derek’s dreams come true by hiring Houston’s pitching coach Brent Strom for Torey Lovullo’s staff.


Derek Montilla, occasionally known as The Mayor of PHNX, has covered the Arizona Diamondbacks beat for over 10 seasons. He's a career .093 hitter as an amateur with more errors than runs scored, so everyone decided that the press box was a better fit. The Arizona native is a diehard fan of all Valley sports and can also be found roaming free ringside at local pro wrestling shows.
