We are still bubbling about the Christmas Eve eve trade that will bring Gabriel Moreno and Lourdes Gurriel Jr to Arizona in exchange for Daulton Varsho and tools to be named later.

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.
