Seager homers and Adolis throws out a runner at home. Just like old times.

His postseason breakthrough continues this season.

Introduction: Ketel Marte’s season review.

An unexpected question struck me - should I sign-up for Marte’s season review? I hesitated. I wasn’t sure why. But I knew to trust my gut. Justin did a great job on the 2023 season review, so my decision ended well!

Now, two months into the season, what are my perspectives on Ketel Marte?

Two World-Series teams meet.

These two team met in last season’s World Series. The Rangers beat the Diamondbacks.

This season is the next chapter. Both teams started the season with more losses than wins. However the important difference is that the Diamondbacks are bouncing back while the Rangers are sinking.

Because the Diamondbacks have better batters (albeit they scored only 4 runs in 3 games against excellent Marlin pitchers), and...

Down the ladder go the snakes...

The D-backs beat the Dodgers in LA, then struggled with the Marlins. Significant? Or just baseball?

Spencer: Only significant because AZ is playing to their opponent rather than their own skill. AZ will be a borderline competitor until that changes one way or the other.

DBacksEurope: Just baseball and significant at the same time. In the eyes of the Dodgers it is just baseball, they lost a series against the struggling...
