Revenge on the Birds

One thing we love about baseball is that you never have to wait too long for revenge. In football, the losing team often has to sit around for a year or more to settle the score. With baseball, there's almost always a chance for payback lurking around the corner.

The Arizona Diamondbacks will get one of those chances this weekend. That's because the St. Louis Cardinals, who took two out of three when the teams met in April, are returning to Chase Field. The D-backs’ bullpen should be especially hungry for vengeance: the Cardinals rang up twenty runs in April's series.
