Arizona Diamondbacks

The Diamondbacks' first six South Bend summers were pretty rough, with the most notable outcome being the worst team season in MWL history. Carlos Urquiola and Billy Martin are pleasant memories, as is Brad Penny. The 2001 team, which qualified for the championship finals, was a pleasant interlude in a generally dull series.

The first D'Back squad in South Bend had Penny, John Patterson, and Nick Bierbrodt on the mound, at least for part of the season. But the supporting cast was weak, and the team mostly lost. This set the pattern, which hasn't had much variation.
