The D-Backs by the Decade


1990s A hotbed of baseball previously considered too hot for summer play, Phoenix was given the Diamondbacks for 1998 after building baseball-specific Bank One Ballpark (now Chase Field) with a retractable roof to keep the stifling desert heat out. The team lost 97 games in its inaugural campaign, but owner Jerry Colangelo was not content to take baby steps out of expansion infancy, handsomely paying star players Randy Johnson, Matt Williams and Jay Bell to come play in Arizona; the Diamondbacks thus surged to 100 wins and a NL West title in their second season.


2000s Under rookie manager Bob Brenly, the Diamondbacks put it all together in an unforgettable 2001 season that ended with a dramatic seventh-game win over the New York Yankees in the World Series. A payroll bubble ensued and once it popped, the Diamondbacks crashed to 111 losses in 2004. From those ashes, a more humbly assembled roster slowly brought the team back to life in 2007 with the league’s best record (though oddly allowing more runs than they scored), before regressing with a free-swinging lineup that included Mark Reynolds, who thrice surpassed 200 strikeouts in a season.


2010s With the Snakes nose-diving back into hibernation, a quick rescue was made when former MVP Kirk Gibson was promoted to the manager’s spot; he gradually remade the team in his hard-nosed image and the team responded, performing a 29-game turnaround for the better in 2011 with their fifth divisional title. Even results have followed as the Diamondbacks hope to build with youngsters such as slugger Paul Goldschmidt and pitcher Patrick Corbin.
