Chicago Cubs: Who stands in the way of the NL Pennant?
Key adds include: Zack Greinke, Shelby Miller
The baseball world was collectively surprised when the Diamondbacks not only managed to land coveted ace Zack Greinke, but they also pried Shelby Miller away from the Braves for a hefty price. Some may question the motives of Arizona’s front office, but they believe this team has at least a three-year window to make a run at a World Series.
The Diamondbacks were a pesky team last season. After finishing an abysmal 2014 season in the NL West cellar with 64 wins, the D-Backs improved by 15 wins in 2015.
Arizona should be considered contenders in 2016 because of their starting rotation. With Greinke, Miller, a healthy Patrick Corbin, and a young hurler with high expectations in Robbie Ray, the Diamondbacks may surprise some people.
Oh, and let’s not forget to mention Paul Goldschmidt, who is among the top-three best first baseman in all of baseball.
