Opening Day Poll: Will the Arizona Diamondbacks Be a World Series Contender?

It's officially baseball season for the Arizona Diamondbacks starting at 4 p.m. today, as the Snakes start a three-game series against the San Francisco Giants at Chase Field.

This year, however, the D'Backs are a hot pick for way-too-early World Series predictions.

A full zero think they can actually win it.

The Diamondbacks are the easiest Valley team to be optimistic about, so we'll gauge your predictions from day one.
