The Arizona Diamondbacks are playing solid baseball and have moved up in the Power Rankings across MLB. We take an entirely too early look at the D-backs playoff chances and their numbers from this fast start. We also discuss MLB expansion and teams changing their beer selling policy due to the pitch clock.


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.
