The Week In Diamondback Tweets

Paul Goldschmidt talks to the media after being named NL #AllStarGame first baseman - @RayTellesABC15, via Twitter

I think Brandon McCarthy's trade to New York is actually part of a cunning plan to acquire the fans of all 30 teams as Twitter followers.

Tweet of the Week

Honorable mentions

Paul Goldschmidt, All-Star

Which perhaps explains this ignorant one: [NFSW: language, the more dainty may care to avert their eyes]

But this was kinda weird. While looking for the above, I found a Tweet saying, "I would love to hate Paul Goldschmidt but I can't. He's a total professional and an exceptional talent. He's just plain good and not a jerk." Fair enough. But then I found another. And another. A search shows the exact same sentiment being Tweeted - not retweeted, note - by 33 different people, since June 30, more than two months after its apparent original use by @TheDodgerhater. Is this some kind of Twitter spam, trawling for favorites? I mean it's nice that @AsianEscortYNi thinks so highly of Paul, I suppose....

The Week in McCarthy's (other) Tweets
