Rodney and his crooked hat. I hate him for some reason.
Is there a rule for that? I mean, what if a guy tries to wear the cap sideways? Will they let him do it? Letting guys like Rodney do this has already turned it into a clown show so how could they regulate it now?

I'm pretty sure those aren't staff. If you sit in those seats you have to have diamond backs gear. I remember a big issue a few years ago where a group wore gear for the other team, and they had to take it off.
It's a suite, I'm pretty sure. I did a tour there once. The camera may not be there during the regular year. I think they have another one right next to the home dugout where the wall into the dugout has a window.

This K zone is atrocious. Ball four feet high nicks the top of the zone apparently.

Why is their mascot a fox?
more like bobcat or lynx
For the lamest reason possible. Baxter the BOBcat to play off the stadium's original name, Bank One Ballpark, which shortens to BOB. So it's not only an awful pun, but outdated to boot.

Shocker. Should've taken the over from Rockies runs this inning from Bovada, license to print free money.

that was such a Rockies loss. and it was their revamped back-end of the bullpen that ultimately gave up way too much.

I think the D-Backs have a better chance to beat the Dodgers than the Rockies would have.

Which is of some value to the three AL teams that still have a theoretical shot for home field in the World Series.

Edit: Sorry Sox and Rocks

Thanks, and I agree with you. The Dbacks were a better team than the dodgers in the 2nd half, and I'd love to see them win.The only problem is they used both Greinke and Ray tonight, which might affect them.

As the resident Rockies fan, I feel relatively good about this game. Greinke is tough, obviously, and their lineup is good, but many of the Rockies players have hit Greinke well (admittedly with a small sample size in some cases), Gray has been good, and I don't expect the environment to be too tough. In fact, I expect there will be a significant contingent of Rockies fans there.
Well, I was 2 for 3. They hit Greinke, and a lot of Rox fans were in the house, but Gray laid a huge egg.

4+ triples in a postseason game, individual teams: 1903 Americans (Game 5 WS), 1903 Americans (Game 7 WS), 2017 Diamondbacks (tonight, NL WC). Centerfield those games was 515' out.

Weird environment. Half innings were exciting, in between was mega minor league ballpark shit. Fans standing and cheering at weird times. Kind of a bizzaro playoff game.
