How much more of this must we endure? It's like the starting rotation has finally been infected with the inconsistency virus that has plagued the offense and bullpen since the start of the season. What was that movie -- 28 Days Later? You know, where a single drop of blood transmits a virus (named "Rage), turning the recipient into a snarling, murderous extra from a George Romero movie in, like, 30 seconds?

Brandon Webb and Claudio Vargas and Tony Clark must be holed up somewhere in Glendale, ready to fire away at, say, Brad Halsey.

A day after their 12-game road trip ends disastrously in Cincinnati (4-8, somehow still only 4 games behind the Padres), the Diamondbacks return home to face the Mets and the Phillies.

And it's all I can do to not ignore it all completely.

My virus is apathy -- and it's catching.
