On this episode, we celebrate how wrong Derek was about when the lockout would end, why the Competitive Balance Tax works so well for the D-backs, and yet another MLB great announces his retirement.


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.
