Diamondbacks Pitchers Get All In A Twitter

Reason #282 to love the Diamondbacks pitchers. The following Twitter conversation which exploded all over my feed last night. Props to Brandon McCarthy, Wade Miley, Charles Brewer, Tyler Skaggs, Josh Booty and the other participants for the giving and receiving of good-natured smack.

"Words with Wade" is in reference to a tradition started by J.J. Putz last spring, where Miley would be given a word - and asked in front of his team-mates to spell and define it, and use it in a sentence. For example, "schedenfreude" [genuine example!] - said Miley, "I never want to use that word again. I don't even remember what it means, and I definitely don't know how to spell it."
