In a bizarre twist early this season, the Arizona Diamondbacks are unable to get reliable starting pitching while their bullpen continues to be solid. We are discussing the D-backs losing their home opener, if they’ve been more lucky that good this season, and what the young guys got cooking down on the farm.


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.
