Two weeks ago, the Diamondbacks were just coming back down to Earth after starting out as one of the best team’s in baseball. Fast forward to Arizona’s seven losses in a row and the Diamondbacks are in a full free fall.
Arizona has lost 13 out of its last 14 games and has given up its big early lead in the NL West. That said, it still has to take some solace in the fact that it’s gone through such a rough stretch and is still just half a game out of first-place in the division.
The offense has been the main culprit. The Snakes are hitting .183 in the month of May with an OPS of .551, both by far the worst in the league during that period.
The pitching has been middle of the road after a hot start. But injuries and some regression have played into an average May staff. But whereas Arizona’s offense was good and pitching was great in April, its offense has been miserable and its pitching hasn’t been anything special enough to carry it in May.
So the A’s will be happy to get Arizona now, when it’s playing as bad as it will ever play. The A’s lost two out of three to Seattle this week but return home for this series.
They just continue to play .500 ball, even a little better, which is a pleasant surprise to some around the organization who didn’t quite think this team was ready to compete for a playoff spot this year.
But let me tell you, Oakland is going to stay in this race. I’ve been high on the A’s since the season began and I’ve seen nothing to tell me this team can’t be what it’s been so far: a good offense with enough pitching to win 85 games.
The Red Sox and Yankees will certainly win a division and top the Wild Card standings by season’s end but that last playoff spot is up for grabs and Oakland is going to be there, with a chance.
