Custom Card of the Night: Inciarte Edition
The NL West has, for the last few weeks, been a race between three teams who consistently have on and off weeks, swimming in circles, making it very intense. The Diamondbacks are not one of those teams.
I mean, you have a team like San Diego, who can fail, but be important WHILE FAILING...but the Diamondbacks have pretty much nobody, with the exception of Paul Goldschmidt, who is basically carrying the team at this point. The good pitchers are injured, the roster's heavily depleted, the rookies, including Ender Inciarte, are doing alright, but not well enough to be too notable.
I honestly have no idea what they can do from here. if they lose Goldy, they have NOTHING. And, unless he snags a contract like Stanton did, he will be leaving very shortly. So...I don't know what's gonna happen. If nobody steps up, it's gonna be very bleak. i can say that AJ Pollock can sort of do well, and a couple other people are okay, but until somebody steps up the way Goldy has so far, I can't say anything good is going to happen here.
Coming Tomorrow- The Indians are hot right now, and their second baseman is hotter than he's ever been.
