I think that was meant to be "NOT"...
Extra innings vs. Arizona feels a lot better knowing Josh Collmenter is now in the DBacks starting rotation.— Chris Tunno (@TunesSTL) May 22, 2014
My junk drawer has better stuff than Cahill. #dbacks— Jake Hughes (@ArrwFlngnWldCat) May 22, 2014

I can understand trying to get your starter a W, but Miley was in for too long. Need to manage the pitching better than that. #Dbacks— Charles Woodall-Pike (@CactusOnIce) May 23, 2014
Rain delay at Citi Field. Arizona writers who have never seen rain before are confused.— Anthony DiComo (@AnthonyDiComo) May 24, 2014

So... You’ve heard the one where it’s 2-0 Dbacks in NY and it starts to rain? #GoDbacks— Matt Hoff (@AzTenthMan) May 24, 2014

Strangely prophetic Tweet of the Week
Roof is now open...Let the balls fly #Dbacks— Joel Meier (@Angry_Saguaro) May 27, 2014
Walk up crowd of 5500 tonight - largest for #Dbacks since 2008— FOX Sports Arizona (@FOXSPORTSAZ) May 27, 2014
Worth noting: while attendance across all baseball is slightly down, the D-backs are up 15,000 compared to the same number of home games last year. Now, that's certainly due to the tally including the Australia contests - but considering the totally wretched first month of the season, I'm surprised how well crowds have generally held up.
