Morning Meltdown - Arizona Diamondbacks Edition

For this Morning Meltdown let’s take a look into some of the buzz surrounding the Arizona Diamondbacks, retaining Kirk Gibson and a look at a recap of last night’s game.

Other League reported today that the Diamondbacks are currently planning to bring back Kirk Gibson, after the hiring of new MLB Commissioner.

The team went as far to hire Tony La Russa to oversee the front office and baseball operations, which only seemed to make drastic changes seem more likely. It appears that may not be the case though, as there are now reports that Gibson’s services will be retained for next year.

This does seem to be an odd move, especially considering the struggles the team has faced recently. The details of Gibson’s current contract have not been disclosed, but he was extended before this season.

The Arizona Diamondbacks took on the Washington Nationals last night, and ultimately lost 5-4. Harvey Valentine of CBS Sports recaps the game for all who missed it.

Washington Nationals manager Matt Williams said the last time he was part of three consecutive walk-off wins he was playing for the Arizona Diamondbacks.

This time the Diamondbacks were the ones being beaten.

Adam LaRoche hit a game-winning solo home run with two outs in the 11th inning to help the Nationals beat the Diamondbacks 5-4 Monday night for their seventh straight win.

It was the third walk-off win in as many days for NL-East leading Washington, the first two coming against the Pirates.”
