The 2014 Arizona Diamondbacks were destined to be in the thick of the NL pennant race come late August. They brought back their core from 2013, when they finished 2nd in the NL West to the 92-win Dodgers, and came nine games from a Wild Card spot. They had a budding ace in Patrick Corbin, who was only going to help a pitching staff with a respectable 3.92 ERA a season ago improve. They added Bronson Arroyo in the offseason, fresh off a 14-win campaign in Cincinnati. They had the healthy mix of established veterans and rising youngsters that seems to be the winning formula these days.

Wow. Let me start with that. What a crazy one at the final day of the first round of the FedEx Cup Playoffs in Paramus, N.J. In the end, Hunter Mahan emerged as the winner at Ridgewood Country Club. Mahan fired a stellar six under-par 65 and won the tournament by two strokes over Stuart Appleby, Cameron Tringale, and Jason Day. To top it all off, Mahan's wife and daughter flew in today in hopes that he would win and the first place trophy was broken during the post-victory festivities.
