Where’d all the grit go?

Farthest Home Run of 2014
Paul Goldschmidt off Troy Patton – 470 feet

This was the tied for the 6th longest dinger in all of baseball in 2014. Aesthetically, homers to center at Chase Field are both hurt and helped by the giant scoreboard; it seems ridiculous that anyone could hit it up there, but it’s also impossible to judge how far the ball would have gone relative to a normal center field fence. Either way, this one from Goldschmidt is pretty comfortably in the holy crap range.

Shortest Home Run of 2014
Paul Goldschmidt off Tim Lincecum – 340 feet

This was Goldy’s seventh home run off Lincecum in his career, which is patently absurd. Jeff Sullivan wrote a great piece about this lopsided match-up last April.

Three Bold Predictions

  1. After battling it out all spring with [whoever Arizona’s other catcher is…] Tuffy Gosewisch seizes the starting job and proves he’s not just a guy named Tuffy Gosewisch. He’s so much more. He hits 54 home runs, matching his career total to this point.
  2. Bronson Arroyo returns from Tommy John Surgery faster than anyone in history when he decides he’s just gonna be a left-handed pitcher instead.
  3. With the #1 pick in the 2015 MLB Draft, the Diamondbacks select GRITS, the Christian rap group.
