AZ SnakePit Round Table: TrashcanGate Part I They'll definitely have a phantom pain where those draft picks were, and Jeff Lunhow can go back to his roots and work for a company that shortsells baby food.

Sunday Sporcle: Second basemen of the Diamondbacks Decade Only three names were guessed by more than 60% of players: Jake Lamb, Christian Walker and some guy called Paul - what disturbs me is that two of the 189 people to take the quiz DIDN'T get him… Oh, and the least well-known first-baseman of the decade was Danny Dorn, correctly named by a mere five participants.
Mets, Pirates "Recently Reopened Starling Marte Trade Talks" The Mets and Pirates have reengaged about the possibility of a Starling Marte trade, per sources for Robert Murray.

The potential cost of trading for Kris Bryant and why the Diamondbacks will ultimately balk at that price This is what the Dbacks return would look like:. So the final package would be Alek Thomas, J.B. Bukauskas, and Matt Tabor for Kris Bryant. I was originally going to include the Comp. A pick, but would have given the Cubs an extra $2.2M in excess value so I excluded it to make them closer.
Arizona Diamondbacks 2020 Top 50 prospects Corbin Carroll, OF: Age: 19 2019 Highest Level: Short Season-A.299/.409./487 18 SB, 22 K%, 15.6 BB% It's hard to be the steal of the 2019 draft going 16th overall, but Carroll just might be. He fell because of his small stature, but his approach at the plate and his defense are about as polished as you'll ever see from a high schooler.
Saturday's 2nd annual Dingers in the Desert at GCU to benefit Project 34 A home run derby at Grand Canyon University will bring together MLB and amateur hitters, all to benefit Project 34, a non-profit founded by Cory Hahn and Pirates pitcher Trevor Williams.
