WATCH: Diamondbacks beat Pirates on controversial call

Controversy was afoot once again in Phoenix on Sunday, and this isn’t a good look for second base umpire Lance Barrett.

The Arizona Diamondbacks: Nick Ahmed edition

The Arizona Diamondbacks are in a situation that nobody envies. They are one of the worst teams in the major leagues with very few desirable trade assets. Fortunately there is one position where the Diamondbacks have a surplus of trade assets. They have three young shortstops that scouts have been drooling over.
