    Possibly. He was absolutely awful to start the season, then he was dominant in June. Then he spent over a month on the DL and I don't think he was healthy the rest of the way. I wouldn't be shocked to see him bounce back and be solid in 2017, but I certainly wouldn't want to bet on it.

    If LaRussa survives the purge, does he put the uniform back on?

    I dealt with Weiss a little bit and can't say enough good things about him.

    Have heard the same. At least according to the story in the Denver paper, his relationship with the front office wasn't the greatest.

    I knew Weiss' days were numbered when he walked Carlos Beltran intentionally to pitch to Adrian Beltre.

    No way.

    According to Kurkjian last night, the Diamondbacks do not have an analytics department or even any employees doing any statistical analysis.

    I suppose that's how you end up giving away Dansby Swanson because you like the cut of Shelby Miller's jib.

    The Braves also go Ender Inciarte and Aaron Blair in that deal.

    Also, the D'backs traded Touki Toussaint (their 2014 first-round pick) in order to dump Bronson Arroyo's contract.

    Even before signing with Arizona, Greinke had average-to-bad numbers — in a significant number of starts — at Chase Field.

    This year, he had a 4.81 ERA, 1.386 WHIP and 2.20 K/BB ratio at home; 3.94, 1.163 and 4.94 on the road.

    Greinke's career ERA in NL West parks:

    Chase Field — 4.16
    Dodger Stadium — 2.19
    Petco Park — 1.90
    AT&T Park — 1.66
    Coors Field — 4.26

    If he bounces back, it probably won't be with the D'backs.

    Pretty amazing a team would need an analytics department to tell them not to make that deal. Maybe the Dbacks front office was just filled with dummies.
