Dbacks have their own 15 game winner in the form of Ian Kennedy. Bet the Yankees wish they still had him.
Their Michael Martinez:
Sean Burroughs last played Major League Baseball in 2006 before resurfacing with Arizona this season. He has a respectable enough .257 batting average, but it's completely empty, as his OPS is a paltry .564. He's only 30 years old though, so maybe he has upside like our 28 year old rookie Martinez. Ha!
Their Danys Baez:
Aaron Heilman was released after posting a 6.88 ERA and 1.67 WHIP in 35.1 IP. Guess which organization he's in now...the Philadelphia Phillies (currently on DL in Triple-A Lehigh Valley).
What We're Listening To:
Carson- Bad Meets Evil (Hell the Sequel). This hip-hop duo boasts Eminem and Royce Da 5'9". Eminem is my favorite MC of all time and when teamed up with Royce, it makes for a very pleasurable eargasm. From start to finish, the two exchange verses back-and-forth with fervor in double-time over a multitude of dope beats. Best tracks: Above the Law, Fast Lane, and Lighters (ft. Bruno Mars).
Corey- Blitzen Trapper - "Furr." I can't really describe it, but trust me, give it a listen.
Phils lose two of three because they want the D-backs to win the West and not the Giant. Just kidding. Phils win the series, like they do every series...
