Cactus League, Week One
At 162 regular-season games, plus 30-odd preceding contests that dont count a lick, the baseball season can be cruelly long, and whether this years Arizona Diamondbacks cough up another fist-size fur ball or actually win something that matters, were all gonna be pretty sick of hearing those words Arizona Diamondbacks long before September. Right now, though and even though it doesnt count a lick were champing at the bit for the first pitch at todays Diamondbacks/Cleveland Indians exhibition at the Indians $100 million new digs, Goodyear Ballpark. The match-up marks the D-Backs 2009 Valley debut, and is a highlight of the first full week of Cactus League 2009.
