Uncustomed Heroes of 2018: Diamondbacks
So...no Goldschmidt. So what's next?
The Diamondbacks were inches away from playoff berth...and then September happened. And the Dodgers and Rockies crept up and took the spots from them. Which...for a team that was looking pretty fantastic for most of the year, must have been heartbreaking.
Even without Taijuan Walker, the pitching staff was great. Robbie Ray, though felled by injury, was sharp enough when he was on the mound. He still had a 6-2 record, and 163 strikeouts, which isn't bad, so he's proven that even injuries can't stop his arm from powering through.
Coming Tomorrow- They made it to their second straight World Series...and subsequently lost their second straight World Series.
