How will the Arizona Diamondbacks replace Daulton Varsho’s defense in the outfield and power at the plate? And how will MLB replace 10 umpires who are retiring? And how will some of these MLB teams replace all of the money they are paying in Competitive Balance Tax? We ponder all of these questions and more.


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.
