I think Myers might be locked out because of the depth of deserving first basemen (Rizzo, Freeman, Belt, and Goldschmidt).


Rumor was going around that Rodney was going to Miami.

Shelby Miller was optioned to Triple-A by the Diamondbacks today. Apparently he said something to the effect that he was surprised it didn't happen sooner given how he'd pitched.

Pujols had already hit two home runs when he came to the plate in the seventh inning Tuesday night against the Texas Rangers. Tony Barnette was pitching for the Rangers and he came in high and tight catching Pujols off guard and striking him in the face with the pitch. Pujols stayed in the game. Pujols went 3-for-3 in the game with six of the Angels eight runs driven in. He also scored two runs, leading his team to an 8-6 victory.

Charlie Tilson has been promoted to the big leagues and will be starting in center field for the White Sox tonight, batting 8th.

I'm excited to see this tonight. But what are the odds that Tilson turns into the next Barraclough and basically becomes the traded away answer to our own problem?

Barraclough had a 3.29 ERA in AA when we traded him for Steve Cishek because we needed a reliever. A year later he's had a 2.86 ERA over 73 MLB appearances for the Marlins. Over the same time span, Cishek has a 3.04 ERA in 71 appearances between St. Louis and Seattle.

Cishek has a ton of Blown Saves and threw away a big lead the other night handing the Cubs a huge, improbable comeback Win oppty.

Tilson singled in his first MLB at bat. However, looked to have pulled his hamstring later in the game and was taken out.

Pujols knocked his 12th career walk-off home run -- the most of any active player in the Majors on Wednesday.

It was Pujols' 20th career walk-off hit, tying him with Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz for the most since 2000 and third most in the Majors since 1969. The all-time leader for walk-off homers is Jim Thome with 13, while Pujols is tied with Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle, Stan Musial, Frank Robinson and Jimmie Foxx for second.

Dude's havin' a darn good year. 21 HRs, 84 RBI, .262 Avg, .778 OPS. Run Production #s very, very good.

So ....... as noted in MLB New Thread, Teixeira announced his retirement. And, as noted in same Thread, ARod's got nothin' left.

Think about this:

Albert Pujols is 3 months older than Teixeira. 36 years old & 3 months older than Tex.

Albert's still due by contract: 16:$25M, 17:$26M, 18:$27M, 19:$28M, 20:$29M, 21:$30M, 10-year, $10M personal-svcs contract 22-32.

Additionally, Albert's still due deferred money from the Cardinals - 10 installments of $1.2M from 2020 to 2029

LaRussa must go - he's a laughingstock

Keith Law ESPN Senior Writer

The Arizona Diamondbacks have some major decisions to make on the future of their front office, including a contract option for GM Dave Stewart for 2017 that must be exercised or declined by Aug. 31 and the soon-to-expire contract of "Chief Baseball Officer" Tony La Russa. These decisions should be incredibly easy for an organization that has done nothing but go backward since their hires. The La Russa/Stewart Reign of Error has been as mistake-filled as any front office regime in the last five years, with most of their gaffes becoming public embarrassments to the organization, contributing to the perception around the sport that Arizona's front office is a laughingstock, falling well behind the rest of the industry in its processes and capabilities.

IMO if anyone should lose his job, it should be Keith Law for writing this article. Like any other team, a team is going to go as far and their pitching takes them. No one in baseball saw the collapse of S. Miller coming, Grienke getting hurt, and Corbin not being more effective. For anyone to think those three wouldn't be an effective trio is not clear thinking IMO. Hindsight is always 20/20. I think the D-Backs have a decent team who just happen to be having a bad year..
