The misery continues for the Diamondbacks, who hire, then fire,, new manager Wally Backman amid revelations about his somewhat drunken, abusive past.

It's hard to believe exactly how bad the Diamondbacks sucked last year. Their 51-111 record is the 11th-worst record in modern baseball history. Several teams lost 111 games with a 154-game schedule, while only the 1962 Mets, the 2003 Tigers, the 1965 Mets and the 1963 Mets have lost more games in a 162-game season.

All I can say is Randy Johnson must like Arizona pretty good to stick it out with the D-backs. The question is, will he pull the trigger on a trade to a contender in December, or will he stick it out until next season's stretch run?

You know who needs pitching? The Braves.
