    I was kind of surprised he got the Diamonbacks gig in the first place. Most managers are either known as tacticians, good with old players, good with young players or a combination. Never understood what Melvin's forte was.

    This team isn't hitting a lick.

    Max Scherzer has gotten six runs of support all season.

    They're not hitting with Rich Schu as hitting coach? That's a shocker.
