The Resume

    (1998- )
    Located in Phoenix, Arizona
    Bank One Ball Park opens 1998
    2001 World Series Champions
    Former and current Diamondbacks include Randy Johnson, Curt Schilling, Steve Finley, Matt Williams, Luis Gonzalez, Jay Bell, Brandon McCarthy, Chris Young, Aaron Hill, Justin Upton and Brad Ziegler
    One retired number: Luis Gonzalez's #20

Why they might be annoying:

    They lost their first game ever, losing 9-2 against the Colorado Rockies.
    They were eliminated from their first run in the playoffs when Todd Pratt hit a 10th inning home run for the Mets.
    After making the playoffs in four straight years (1999, 2000, 2001, 2002), they failed at making it in 2003.

Why they might not be annoying:

    The tickets for their inaugural opening day were sold out within 3 hours.
    Luis Gonzales was an underachiever before becoming a Diamondback.
    They reached the playoffs in their second year as a major league club.
    Randy Johnson reached 3,000 career strikeouts in a Diamondback jersey.
    Their 2001 World Series (against the New York Yankees) was one of the most exciting in baseball history, going down to the bottom of the 9th in Game 7.
    They're the quickest expansion team to a World Series, beating the Florida Marlins by a year.
