ARI is one team that needs to just blow it all up. They could get a lot for guys like Haren, LaRoche, and especially Reynolds, among others.

Luckily for them they are in a division that you can do that.

They had such a promising future after 2007. Injuries, a few bad moves and overall lack of improvement killed them.

Well, there goes Kenny's trading buddy. That's unfortunate.

Wow, not too long ago, ESPN the Mag was touting them as a model franchise.

Oh well.

Injuries and underdevelopment did them in.

Byrnes will most certainly land on his feet. His contract runs through 2015 too!! That's crazy to fire him. Picking Hinch as his mgr was definitely the nail in the coffin though. The pick was ripped from day one and it seems like the players never really bought into him. Hope Hahn isn't a candidate.

AJ Hinch sure was a failed experiment

Talk about NOT paying attention to any sports news except to listening to White Sox games on XM radio, saw the headline on a newsbox Friday while we were camping last week in the White Mountains.

My gut feeling was the D-Backs brass would wait...maybe forever to make any changes as they just resigned these turkeys last year to big contracts, but maybe the ownership is showing some heartbeats finally!!:o:
