With a little over two weeks left until the regular season begins Brandon Guyer Jersey , the fringe of the Opening Day roster is still to be determined."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Diamondbacks Farm TeamsGameday ThreadsDiamondbacks NewsDiamondbacks Game ReportsFang FoodSnake EDTShareTweetShareShareSnake Bytes 3/12: Decisions to be MadeTommy Gilligan-USA TODAY SportsArizona Diamondbacks News[Camden Chat] A Birdland Salute to Adam Jones - Some of you may not realize that what Paul Goldschmidt meant to the fanbase of the Arizona Diamondbacks, Adam Jones was the equivalent on the Baltimore Orioles. on team USA during the 2017 World Baseball Classic. I took a stroll over to the Orioles’ SB Nation site, Camden Chat, for some perspective on the impact of his loss and was not surprised by what I found. Much like none of the writers over at Viva El Birdos can quite appreciate Goldy the way that we can here, it’s also difficult for us to measure the value of Jones the way that the Orioles fanbase can. He was that monumental of a player for them. One of the commenters linked an 8th inning at bat from Jones when the Orioles were locked in a division race with the New York Yankees in 2012. It’s well worth a watch. Jones quickly falls behind 0-2, then David Robertson uncorks a breaking ball near his head, and on the very next pitch Jones breaks a 6-6 tie in the eighth inning with a leadoff solo home run to left field. Truly special.[D’] Jones to get plenty of playing time in Arizona - How Jones is utilized is of particular importance. The Diamondbacks have done well with defensive positioning under this front office, and hopefully that strength can counteract some of Jones’ defensive decline. It appears that the team still seems prepared to give Ketel Marte some time in center when the regular season begins. Jones can also provide a day off for David Peralta against a difficult left handed starting pitcher.[AZ Central] Adam Jones adds depth, versatility to Arizona Diamondbacks’ roster - [The Athletic] Rosenthal: An intriguing option for Kimbrel; Greinke’s Hall candidacy; Mets’ brewing position battles; more notes - Two D’backs related topics to unpack in this piece. Ken Rosenthal comments on Jones’ free agency journey and Zack Greinke’s case for the Hall of Fame. If Arizona hangs on to Greinke for the remainder of his contract , there is a chance that he stamps his resume for Cooperstown under our watch.

Just going to go bash my head into a wall.[CBS Sports] Miguel Cabrera pulls off hidden-ball trick with smooth pump fake in spring training game - Time inevitably catches up with all MLB players, but the best can rely on their experience as their athletic ability declines. Watch Miguel Cabrera make Ehire Adrianza look absolutely foolish with the most exciting defensive play in baseball, the hidden ball trick.[Sporting News] Are baseball players happy? A personal memory of Marvin Miller - In 1982, Thomas Hauser and Bill Hoffman sent a questionnaire to members of the MLBPA seeking to determine if baseball players were happy. The responses to the questions are still relevant today. Now more than ever, the dominant baseball conversation attempts to analyze and quantify everything a baseball player does. It can become all too easy to forget that there is an actual person behind those numbers. Perhaps we should applaud Adam Jones for more than his ability on the field. The Braves lost by a combined 10-5 score and only managed two extra-base hits on the day."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Talking Chop User’s GuideTalking Chop PodcastAround the NL EastBaseball Analysis PrimerFreeman homers, Teheran thrives, but Braves drop both split squad games on SundayNew,17commentsThe Braves lost by a combined 10-5 score and only managed two extra-base hits on the day.EDTShareTweetShareShareFreeman homers, Teheran thrives Josh Tomlin Jersey , but Braves drop both split squad games on SundayKim Klement-USA TODAY SportsThe Braves played two todayHere were the positives from the day’s games:Julio Teheran continued his good Grapefruit League showing, posting a 6/0 K/BB ratio while allowing just one run in five frames to the Astros. He stranded runners on second in both the first and third innings courtesy of two strikeouts in each frame, but couldn’t quite do the same as the second of two fourth-inning Astros doubles drove in a run against him. He departed after a 1-2-3 fifth.Freddie Freeman blasted a three-run homer in the sixth off left-hander Cionel Perez. The Braves’ bats had been quiet to that point, getting only a couple of runners to second and scoring neither, and they remained quiet afterwards, as hitters kept bouncing into double plays to erase potential scoring chances and extra-based hits proved elusive.Chad Sobotka finally had a non-disastrous outing, throwing a scoreless inning that featured a hit but no walks or strikeouts.On the mixed bag front, you had Touki Toussaint’s start against the Tigers. The good part was that Toussaint posted a neat 5/0 K/BB ratio of his own in four frames. The bad part was that he threw a lot of cement mixer breaking pitches that stayed up and were hit hard by the Detroit batters. The first run he yielded came in the first, when Ozzie Albies threw away a slow roller to him at shortstop that would have ended the inning. But Carlos Carrasco Jersey , Toussaint’s other two runs allowed came in the second, when he hit the leadoff batter with a pitch and allowed two hard-hit liners on cement mixers to consecutive batters thereafter. He got a little help afterwards thanks to a fielder’s choice where his own good fielding play nabbed a runner trying to take third and then a caught stealing, and thereby managed to avoid any further damage. He did finish his outing very strong, as he struck out the side.The main bad stuff:Sam Freeman managed another nightmare inning. First, four straight batters reached without a ball leaving the infield, as a leadoff walk begat a single on a pop-up begat another walk begat an RBI infield single. Two batters later, two more runs scored as a ball finally got past the infield and landed for a single. In the game against the Tigers, a fairly weak split squad lineup managed just two runs with no extra-base hits. That meant that the Braves played in two games and got two extra-base hits, total. Yeesh.While not really relevant for the state of the roster Cliff Pennington Jersey , Josh Graham had a miserable top of the ninth against the Astros, allowing four straight men to reach with two outs. He was then pulled from mop-up work in a Spring Training game, and replacement Michael Mader allowed the Astros’ seventh run to score before Izzy Wilson threw a runner out at home to mercifully end the inning.All-in-all, the Braves lost their game to the Tigers 3-2 and their game to the Astros 7-3. Bryse Wilson gets the start against the Yankees tomorrow evening.
