Snake Bytes: 09/13 - No one cares

[AZSnakePit]: Arizona 5, Seattle 4 - A Series Win on the Road?. If you are hunting a play-off spot there is one thing you should not do: lose a series against a bad team. Not sure what part of that lesson the Seattle Mariners did not understand, since the D-Backs were able to snap their 17 losing away series skid at T-Mobile park. Yesterday’s guest recap wasn’t a guest recap at all since dusty, old English scholar James Attwood provided us with some nice detailed information. The lesson the Mariners did learn: despite some awkward defensive plays the D-Backs won, baby!

Snake Bytes 9/12: Emerald City

[D’] Varsho does it all: ‘He’s a very special talent’ - Both at the plate and in the outfield, Daulton Varsho showed how versatile he can be on Saturday night. Varsho provided a pair of timely swings and collected a career-high-tying four RBIs — all of which came with two outs — and displayed his defensive skills in the D-backs’ 7-3 win over the Mariners at T-Mobile Park. Varsho’s biggest knock was his two-run homer that capped a four-run fourth inning. D-backs manager Torey Lovullo said Varsho’s performance showed how he’s bounced back offensively in the second half of the season. “It was a terrific night for him, and those are the things that we’ve been seeing for the better half of these past couple months,” Lovullo said. “He seems to really be on the baseball, impacting the baseball and doing it at really critical times. And that’s what we ask our players to do — to be at their competitive best when it’s needed most. “He made a terrific play in right field. He just was all over the diamond, and that’s what he’s capable of. He’s a very special talent, and the more opportunity that he’s getting, the more he’s learning, the more he’s helping us win baseball games.”

Snake Bytes: 9/8 - Hall of Fame Day

The good version of Zac Gallen showed up, allowing only three runs through 6 2⁄3 innings. The offense and defense though, not so much. The Diamondbacks took a 1-0 lead in the third, but that was the end of the scoring for the Snakes on Tuesday night. The Diamondbacks managed...

Snake Bytes: 9/11 - Remembering

Seth Beer had a memorable MLB debut, hitting a solo home run in the eighth is a pinch hitting appearance. Alas, that was not sufficient to save the Diamondbacks as Madison Bumgarner allowed five runs through six innings, including allowing three home runs. Seth Beer got the call and he...

Snake Bytes 9/9: 5 In A Row

From the Keegan: The longest at bat in the Majors this season, according to the Bally Sports broadcast, came in the sixth inning on a matchup between Jake Faria and Nick Solak. On the sixteenth pitch of his at bat, after eleven foul balls, Solak reached on another infield single. Texas tacked on two more runs after loading the bases giving them a 5-to-2 advantage. Arizona scratched one back in the bottom of the sixth in unexciting fashion making the score 5-to-3.

Snake Bytes: 09/06 - Cy Young Robbie Ray

Our own Imstillhungry95 did yesterday’s neat and slick guest recap. Ish was emotionless, just like our own D-Backs who fail to bring joy to the hearts of the few diehard fans that keep on watching games. The only thing we have left is that banner we all look up at 200 times each game.

Snake Bytes 9/7: Race to the Bottom

[MLB Trade Rumors] Diamondbacks To Select Brandyn Sittinger - The Diamondbacks are planning to select the contract of reliever Brandyn Sittinger, reports Robert Murray of FanSided (Twitter link). Arizona will need to make corresponding active and 40-man roster moves. Sittinger originally entered pro ball as a 17th-round pick of the Tigers in 2016 out of Division II Ashland University. The right-hander spent the next couple seasons in the Detroit organization but was released in July 2019, having topped out at Double-A. After being let go, he landed with the Evansville Otters of the independent Frontier League, where he spent a couple months. He impressed D-Backs’ evaluators enough in indie ball to land a minor league deal over the 2019-20 offseason. Because of last year’s canceled minor league season, Sittinger didn’t pitch professionally.
