New blog affiliate: Snakes on Jefferson

We're pleased to announce another new member of the SweetSpot network: Snakes on Jefferson, covering the Arizona Diamondbacks. Welcome aboard to Tyler Emerick and Andrew Gruman.

With the Diamondbacks just two games out of first place and winners of eight of their past 10 games, it's perfect timing. Tyler has a piece on the team's turnaround, where a revamped bullpen led by closer J.J. Putz (14-for-14 in saves chances) has been key.

The best baseball game I ever attended in person was in Arizona -- Game 7 of the 2001 World Series -- so I'll always have fond memories of purple and Diamondbacks fans going crazy.
