No team in Major League Baseball has come so far so quickly as the Arizona Diamondbacks have over the past year.

The NL West's last place club in 2010, few could have predicted Arizona would reach the 2011 postseason as division champions. 

Arizona's ride into the postseason ended too quickly, as the Diamondbacks lost to a Prince Fielder and Ryan Braun-led Milwaukee Brewers in a five-game NLDS.

Still, hopes are high for the Diamondbacks to repeat their 2011 success and reach the postseason once again.

These are 10 reasons why.
