While some teams preferring throwing chairs at fans, in Arizona we merely rearrange deck chairs on the Titanic that is the 2004 Diamondbacks season. Of course, it would be much harder to actually hit a fan by throwing a chair at BOB, seeing as there were only 22,000 or so in attendance for the 9-2 loss to the Rockies.

And, frankly, the home team bullpen probably has more to worry about from vociferous fans than the visiting bullpen. The D-Backs gave up 5 home runs to the Rockies, and 4 of them were served up by the relief staff. It seems like the offense got the message that we were just playing the Rockies, but the pitching staff thought we were playing them at Coors Field.

You know, I literally only listened to 2 pitches on the radio broadcast last night... and they were the back-to-back home runs to Castilla and Burnitz off Cormier in the 5th inning. In September, for a team with 100 losses, that was enough to get me to turn the radio off...

In case you were wondering, there's nothing new to report on negotiations with Stephen Drew (last article at bottom).
