New York- Introducing a new segment: Snake Bites: Quick stats and info on the Dbacks while I’m in the Bronx for SNB between the Sox and Yanks

So the Dbacks are 4-11, and its not getting any better. We have analyzed and over analyzed why the Dbacks have struggled. Here are some more tidbits that tell why the team is struggling in April:

  • The Dbacks have the worst pitching era in the majors at 5.95
  • The Dbacks have allowed the second most home runs in the majors at 20
  • The Dbacks have allowed the most walks at 59
  • Our pitchers mostly the bullpen has pitched the most innings in baseball at 133.0 coming into today’s game

Those stats tell the story. The Dbacks offense is in the middle of the pack with Mark Trumbo leading the N.L in homers and RBI’s but the pitching has to get going!
