The D-backs are the most interesting team in the NL
I know who these guys are. I've played against guys like this. Yeah, their faces are different and their names are different and the sport is different but "the thing" that lives inside them I know and have witnessed up close. Bill Boy Bates, Sam Mills, Dave Duerson, Seth Joyner...these guys weren't household names but perish the thought that you weren't ready to play when you lined up across from them because they would hand you your lunch, take it from you, eat it in your face and dare you to do something about it. And that can grind on you; that kind of intensity can wear you down -- especially in a three-game series.
It's not Moneyball, it's muddy-ball. And this experiment by the D-backs makes them the most interesting team in the National League. The baseball world is watching.
