The trade deadline has come and gone but one team that remained intact was the Arizona Diamondbacks. Despite all the buzz of a possible move to acquire Aroldis Chapman or even Craig Kimbrel, the D-Backs resisted those temptations and moved on to play the Astros for a three game series. Arizona came into Houston riding high as winners of five in a row and six of their last seven games.
