Happy Pitchers and Catchers Reporting Day! Baseball is officially back and comes loaded with new rules this season for players to adapt to. We discuss Rob Manfred and Torey Lovullo’s comments on the new rules, as well as some more projections for the Diamondbacks in 2023.


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.
