Diamondbacks 2011 Highlights Countdown Starts Here With Last Night's "Miracle" Win Over Dodgers
We actually were compiling our list of top-20 moments and characters from the Arizona Diamondbacks' improbable 2011 season, when (to steal a line from the great Vin Scully), the impossible happened and Ryan Roberts hit his grand-slam walk-off homer to beat the Dodgers.
Thankfully, Scully is still at it after 61 years as the best play-by-play man ever. Hell, he was on the air last night from Chase Field, so the circle truly is complete.
Kirk Gibson also is still around, now as the manager of the playoff-bound D-Backs--who are about to complete one of the best turnarounds in baseball history.
