On another Mailbag Monday episode, Derek and Jesse are answering questions from Twitter, including the impact Jeff Bannister will have as bench coach, if Jake McCarthy is still a player to watch, and thoughts on the D-backs international signing prospects and the process itself.


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.
