The 2011 Diamondbacks remind be a lot of the 2001 Diamondbacks. They don't necessarily have a star-studded line up, but they play well together and score runs. They have a great starting rotation and a very good bullpen as well.
Can Kennedy and Hudson be this year's Johnson and Schilling? I'm not sure. But if the Diamondbacks manage to make it to the World Series, they could potentially meet up with the Yankees again.
I don't want to get too ahead of myself, but think about that match up. Remember, the NL won the All-Star Game, so Arizona would have home field advantage, just like in '01.
The Yankees have played a Game 7 in Phoenix before, remember? It turned out pretty well for the Diamondbacks.
And not to mention, the possibility of Cy Young contender Ian Kennedy starting three games, including Game 7, against his former team. How about that for a story line?
I'm not saying that they'll definitely pull off a deep run in October, but the Brewers shouldn't take the D-Backs lightly in the first round.
