A bit of a rollercoaster week, eh? Started the week in the middle of taco binge, ended it with a thrashing of the Dodgers. Oh, and I guess a couple guys got moved and perhaps more on the way. Perhaps most importantly, though, is that the D-backs closed the gap from 6 back to 3.5. Winning cures a lot of ills.

The week started off pretty nice, if you like the Diamondbacks to score a ton of runs, and for you to score free tacos (I'm assuming you like those things if you're reading this):

Most of what people were saying about the Ryan Roberts move was unpublishable for a family blog, so we'll just have to settle for Clefo's truthiness:

So there you have it, a selection from the week that was. Overall people seemed happy, if you ignore the trades and the DFAs. Want in on next week's fun? Follow @azfanconfidence, or use the tag #dbacksconfidence.
