Legendary broadcaster Joe Garagiola passes away at 90.

Garagiola, who was awarded the Ford Frick Award—presented annually to a broadcaster for “major contributions to baseball”—by the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1991, was the play-by-play voice of baseball for NBC for nearly 30 years, beginning in 1961. He worked alongside Curt Gowdy, Tony Kubek and Bob Costas on the network’s “Game of the Week.

How the D-Backs Landed Grienke in 333 Minutes

Ken Kendrick, the Diamondbacks’ managing general partner, made the call at about noon MT on Friday, Dec. 4.

The D-backs were about 5½ hours away from reaching a six-year, $206.5 million agreement with free-agent right-hander Zack Greinke. But at that point, they had yet to even inform Greinke’s agent of their interest in the pitcher.

Lots of interesting stuff in here. It certainly makes Grienke look like a mercenary (he didn’t even talk to the team until after the offer was accepted), and Dave Stewart is portrayed as a total bystander to the process.
