I'm Dustin. I'm an illustrator and I've been asked quite a bit over the last several years to do a DBacks illustration - some of you may recognize my stuff from over at Bright Side of the Sun. I finally got around to it and I couldn't think of a more deserving player than Paul Goldschmidt. Comments are very much welcome and appreciated. Blog // Twitter // Facebook

Five players being overlooked


A discussion of the top five players who are not valued sufficiently by their organizations. It's written by Paul Swydan of FanGraphs. Patrick Corbin is one of the five: "Patrick Corbin, P, Arizona Diamondbacks "Last year, Corbin turned in some fairly solid work as a rookie in the Diamondbacks' rotation....it was Corbin who provided some stability to the back end of the rotation. In 17 starts he posted a 99 FIP that was nearly identical to that of rotation front man Ian Kennedy. "However, the Diamondbacks wanted to upgrade this offseason, and signed Brandon McCarthy, which bumps Corbin into a three-way battle for the fifth spot in the rotation... "Solution: Keep him in rotation until Hudson returns, then trade to contender looking for pitching help at deadline." This is part of an ESPN Insider article, so the complete article is behind a pay wall. It includes discussions of the other four players with 1+ seasons of experience, as well as a list of prospects who need to be "freed" by their clubs. Since there has been a lot of discussion about him here, I thought I'd mention that Profar is on the list of prospects.
