30 Teams In 30 Days-Arizona Diamondbacks

The Arizona Diamondbacks  had quite the season last year, making it to the NLDS, only to lose the Milwaukee Brewers. Now, the Diamondbacks are back in action and looking to reclaim their NL West crown. But before we get to the present, let’s look back at last season.
Arizona Diamondbacks
Record: 94-68
Finish: 1st NL West
Playoff: Eliminated in NLDS
Top Hitter: Miguel Montero, 18 HR, 86 RBI, .282 AVG
Top Pitcher: Ian Kennedy, 21-4, 3.49 ERA, 198 SO
Important Offseason Acquisitions:  Trevor Cahill, Takashi Saito, Jason Kubel  Important Offseason Losses: Jarrod Parker, Jason Marquis, Xavier Nady, Zach Duke 

The Diamondbacks haven’t missed a step since last season. I have high hopes for this season and will have to retract my sentiments on the Dodgers Season this year. http://criticsfromthecouch.com/?p=390. The Diamondbacks have to be the favourite for the NL West, they’ve haven’t lost anyone pivotal pieces and have added to their rotation. The Diamondbacks also added Josan Kubel to their outfield. A great trade for the Diamondbacks was Jarrod Parker for Trevor Cahill, Parker was to try out for the starting rotation this year but with the acquisition of Cahill, they now have a legitimate starter. Diamondback fans should be excited this season with an infield that played great last season along with a good starting rotation they have to be the #1 favourite in the NL West.

Prediction
Record: 96-66
Finish: 1st NL West
Playoffs: Eliminated in NLCS
Top Pitcher: Ian Kennedy, 18-9, 3.45 ERA, 200 SO
Top Hitter: Miguel Montero, 20 HR, 90 RBI, .279 AVG
