The Diamondbacks lost a tough one to the Miami Marlins, as Brandon Pfaadt’s second big league start was nearly as bad as his first. He allowed six runs, including two homers to Jorge Soler, over five innings. We are also discussing some interesting comments from D-backs’ pitching coach Brent Strom about his relationship with Madison Bumgarner, as well as some updates from around the minors.


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.
