Diamondbacks Try To Squeeze More Money From Taxpayers; County Supervisor Tells Team To Screw Themselves

The Diamondbacks have been playing in their current ballpark since 1998. Their stadium cost $364 million to build, and Maricopa County picked up $238 of the tab. Eighteen years later, it is need of some repairs, and the fight over who is going to pay for them has gotten ugly.

That trade sure worked out well.

The Diamondbacks announced tonight that they have optioned struggling right-hander Shelby Miller to Triple-A Reno. Arizona did not announce a corresponding move at this time.

Tony LaRussa invades booth to argue with Pirates braodcaster

Despite not being division rivals, the Pirates and Diamondbacks have a bit of bad blood dating back to 2014, when Andrew McCutchen and Paul Goldschmidt were at the center of a hit-by-pitch war. McCutchen suffered a rib fracture as a result of being hit.
Tuesday night in Pittsburgh, the two teams again traded hit-by-pitches. Pirates righty Arquimedes Caminero hit both Jean Segura and Nick Ahmed with pitches up around the head, which is always scary. D-Backs righty Evan Marshall responded by hitting David Freese.
