  • Dumpster diving doesn’t exactly sound like a thrilling event for anybody, but there’s no denying that it can churn out valuable—if a little mucky—gems. Diamondbacks general manager Kevin Towers has perfected the art and seems to know exactly what’s inside Dumpster #1, 2, and 3. Geoff Young takes a look at Towers’ career as a sludge-removing GM, chronicling is shrewdest moves with San Diego to his new gig in Arizona.
  • The current status quo for starting rotations is to find five guys who can get consistent outs and not embarrass themselves—well, and to keep their team in the game. When a rotation cog is thrown on the disabled list, somebody else gets a shot, and if they succeed, they may have a chance at sticking. So what’s a team to do when it has six starters: Send one down? Send one to the bullpen? As R.J. Anderson shows, teams have lately been pondering the virtues of six-man rotations.
