Diamondback pitchers can hit

The Diamondbacks lead the National League in batting... From pitchers. The rotation is hitting at .198 with 4HR and 29RBI entering Tuesday. Though the average looks bad amongst other hitters, the San Francisco Giants are hitting only .239. Zach Duke has a few home runs and Danirl Hudson has 14RBI. Reaquiring Micah Owings from Cincinnati adds another bat in the rotation, however he plays a relief role this season.

The Eagles have been especially busy this offseason and look primed for future playoff success. Hopefully Vick will not get in trouble like the last time he was given a long-term deal.
