I know the sabermetric guys don't believe in so-called "protection" in the order, but it seems that Pollock's absence has meant Goldschmidt has seen nothing to hit, and that's why he has a sub .250 average, but a .420 OBP (he's tied for the major league lead in walks). 

AS the resident DBack expert, I must tell you that the OBP for the first two spots in the order are .355 and .308, respectively. Combined, that is right on par with what they've gotten the last two years.

Seeing 44% strikes, same as he always has.  He's just swinging less so far.  I definitely don't believe in protection

The Diamondbacks will install a humidor at Chase Field in an attempt to help their pitchers' grip.

The Diamondbacks are off to a 2-1 start in the early going, but their pitching has been less than sterling in that small sample. The team has given up 19 runs in that three-game space. Whether the humidor will actually help their pitchers is an open question, but anything to gain a possible small advantage.

Archie Bradley looked great the other night in a relief role.

saw he topped off at 97 up from 92 when he was a starter last year . I think he'd be a really good closer with his stuff but I bet they work him back into the rotation

This thread should get more love.  With the addition of JD, the lineup is now unstoppable and they have 3 solid starters.  What is the weakness?  Bullpen?  I believe they're a legitimate World Series contender with a few tweaks.
