Kiss 'Em Goodbye: Diamondbacks
The future suddenly looks a lot brighter in the desert
Kiss 'Em Goodbye is a series focusing on MLB teams as their postseason dreams fade -- whether in September (or before), the division series, league championship series or World Series. It combines a broad overview from Baseball Prospectus, a front-office take from former MLB GM Jim Bowden, a best- and worst-case scenario ZiPS projection for 2012 from Dan Szymborski and Kevin Goldstein's farm system overview.
Congrats to the Arizona Diamondbacks for going from worst to first, but their season ends here.
For the full breakdown from all angles -- Bowden, BP and Szymborski -- you need to be an ESPN Insider.
