The Diamondbacks shocked the baseball world with their activity this winter, signing Zack Greinke and then trading for Shelby Miller. Arizona fans were excited. The D-Backs were going for it.
Now, in May, it's not looking so good for the Diamondbacks. Greinke got off to a slow start, and Miller hasn't really broken out of the blocks. Injuries have plagued his ability to be the successful number two pitcher that Arizona wants him to be, and he finds himself on the 15-day disabled list. Taking all of that into account, would they do it all over if given the chance?
