The Time Is Now For The D’backs

It was a terrible month. There is no way around it. The D’backs were 11-17 in the month of May and were outscored by 19 runs. That is the worst month the team has had since July 2010.

Given the expectations coming into the season, even a losing record in a month would have been disappointing but six games under in a month? That’s horrific.

And it’s not as if it was a fluke, either. The D’backs played bad with many of the guys they relied on last year struggling all month.

The excuses used earlier in the season: it’s early, Chris Young and Daniel Hudson are injured, Justin Upton is still getting going, etc . . . are no longer valid explanations of why the D’backs are struggling.
