It’s PREDICTION SZN over at, and we are breaking down all of the hot takes about the Arizona Diamondbacks and what their 2023 season could bring. Also, the Winter Classic is delightful and we stand in solidarity with our icy brothers from the NHL.


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.
