There is a thread for virtually every other team, so I figured I would make one for my team :D

I believe that the D-Backs are a year or two away from making a serious push for another NL Championship, but I also believe that they could win the NL Worst this season as well....

They have 4 pitchers that were their respective teams opening day starters last season in Webb, The Unit, Livan Hernandez and Doug Davis....

They also have the sickest farm system in the league and a lot of those kids are going to be major contributors to the ball club this season:

Stephen Drew - SS
Connor Jackson - 1B
Justin Upton (maybe) - all over the place
Carlos Quentin - OF
Chris Young - CF
Alberto Callaspo - IF
Dustin Nippert - P
Miguel Montero - C

The future is BRIGHT for the snakes :rockon:

Oh yeah, I am stoked they finally got rid of that purple and are sporting a much improved look in the red and black :salute:

I beg to differ....

All of last year, I heard over and over again that the top two farm systems top to bottom were....

1. D-Backs

2. Dodgers

People rank farm systems and from what I understand, the best two reside in the NL West and one of them is not the Rockies....

You and CinnaBunBun ;) could be correct....

I know that I heard quite a few times last season that the D-Backs and Dodgers were the top two, however, with the number of players that are moved in the off-season, the rankings may have changed....

I hope the Rockies are up there, as they are my second favorite team....

Kinda hard to root for them though when they are in your division :goofy:

Anyhow, good luck to the Rockies, lets knock the Padres off from the top :rockon: :salute:

WASHINGTON -- Livan Hernandez held the Nationals hitless for 5 2/3 innings and worked seven scoreless innings as the D-backs completed the four-game sweep with a 3-1 win Sunday afternoon in front of 17,224 at RFK Stadium in Washington.

It was just the fourth four-game sweep in franchise history as the D-backs completed their opening-season road trip with a 5-2 mark.

Hernandez (1-0) allowed his former teammates three hits over seven shutout innings. The first hit against him was a Ryan Zimmerman double with two outs in the sixth.

Arizona jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first inning on RBIs from Orlando Hudson and Eric Byrnes.

The D-backs, who never trailed in this series, added a run in the eighth when Chris Young's infield single scored Scott Hairston.

Jose Valverde closed things out for the D-backs to pick up his third save in four chances.

I been talkin bout Micah Owings right bout the time Grace did, and the kid is not only a very solid pitcher, but a monster at the dish (Melvin uses him to ph). I believe he went to Georgia Tech and last night at the game he had 40+ family member in Atlanta watching him play for the first time as a Major Leaguer........What a perfomance to say the least (jus unbelievable)

as far as the DBACKS go

Yes, i am a die-hard fan, the ups the down, but they are a serious threat to win the NL even with their miniscule payroll (in which 1/3 goes to "the Unit" and hes pitched in bout 4 games, and was horrible in 3)

Justin Upton......jus another dbacks farm system gem

There are a lot of games left vs the WEST, so they jus gotta keep winning series

Who would have predicted that the Snakes and Rox would be battling it out for the NL back in March :confused:

Granted they both still have to win another game, but I do believe that come Sunday....both the Rox and Snakes will be headed towards a game 1 @ Chase Field for the beginning of the NLCS :rockon:

GO D-BACKS!!!!

I will be so stoked if its a Rox vs D-Backs NLCS, neither of these teams get any credit from the media so we'll show them that the the west is best in the NL.

The D-backs had the best record in the NL and all the media will talk about is their run differential, and the Cubs 99 year WS drought.

Rockies win 16 of 17 and all the media talk is about how our closer might of cheated by dumping water on his jersey and when the Phillies bats will wake up, they will slaughter the Rockies.

Both teams are very similar too, with young not too well known kids with a ton of talent playing their hardest! these teams will be exciting for a while and it should be a great rivalry in the future.


I hope of both of our teams make it to the NLCS, this would make for a great matchup! And if you guys beat us I will definitely root for you in the WS.

Congrats on a great season too. :salute:
