One of the unique natures of my work with MLB.com is the opportunity to cover the visiting clubs on a regular basis.
Despite feeling a bit out of touch with my responsibilities on the Reds side, it's a good experience working in the visitors clubhouse with a different group of players and coaching staffs.
The Diamondbacks have an accommodating clubhouse, helpful staff, and manager Bob Melvin has been in a good mood this weekend.
I only mention that because a D'Backs beat writer, who shall remain nameless, said that's not always the case.
I'll transition back over to the Reds side on Sunday, giving beat writer Mark Sheldon a spell.
