On this episode, Jesse and Derek are discussing the D-backs 11th hour acquisition of relief pitcher Mark Melancon, the inevitable start of the lockout, and why people are already so sad about 2022.


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.
