D'Backs Bring La Russa In For The Save

Over the weekend the Arizona Diamondbacks took a dramatic step in the midst of a below-average season. Usually the teams will fire the manager or general manager. Instead, the Diamondbacks hired someone new to oversee the management team that is already in place.
