Chris Young with a key hit and JJ Putz nails down the save.

Love to see them and the Brewers do some damage in October.

What a remarkable turnaround. They lost 97 games last year, now they're the NL West champs. Hats off to Kirk Gibson and company for pulling this off.

Also, this is their 5th division title in just 13 years of existence. Simply remarkable.

Good feat for a team whose salary is 1/4 of what the Yankees are shelling out...

Always had a soft spot for them. Congrats. And I think they have the best team name in baseball, as an aside.

I haven't been following the D-Backs closely enough to know - but how did they manage the turnaround from losing 97 games last year to being division champs this year?

What acquisitions made the difference for them? Or was it that they had young talent last year that wasn't quite ready to compete?
