Why can't I just marry food?? It's always there lol— Justin Choate (@choatempole) May 9, 2014
Just placed a $250 bet on the @Dbacks to win the NL West at 100-1. They're pulling it together. Yes, I've been drinking, why do you ask?— Clue Heywood (@ClueHeywood) May 12, 2014
When he did it back in February, I noted it was a brave team president who issues an open call on Twitter for questions. I'm not sure whether doing it again when you're team is 13-24, counts as even braver, or topples over into foolhardy. Here are some of the questions he didn't...have time to answer.
Can you give me a heads up if it will be me or Gibby that gets fired first? #DHallChat— Faux Kevin Towers (@FauxKevinTowers) May 8, 2014
#DHallChat The Men's bathroom near section 118 had all the mirrors removed this season. It feels like a prison. Can we get those back?— Matt Abbott (@mkabbott) May 8, 2014

Ok, I laughed. Sue me. But I guess the friend lives in San Francisco...
Commentary on Dbacks. At Wolfley's for dinner and not a single TV on the Dbacks game. Red Sox game on 3 tvs.— Scott Allen (@azsportsguy) May 7, 2014
I know the feeling. We were at Islands for the game, and had to ask for the game to be put on. We got precisely three innings before it was unilaterally changed back to some NBA playoff game or other.
@AZSnakepit pt-2 true fans know teams in NL are aware how good our roster is. what they dont fear is our pitchingGotta figure it out#Dbacks— Somody@BR88 (@SomodyBR88) May 13, 2014
The bottom line is, fans want to see winning baseball. It simply makes for a much more enjoyable time at the old park. So far this year, however, they have an 84% chance of seeing a loss. That's not going to encourage repeat business. Also, while we do have good young players, think of what might have been? Eaton instead of Ross. Skaggs instead of Arroyo. Bryan Shaw instead of J.J. Putz. People can watch a young side lose, because thyy can enjoy young players developing. When you build a team to "win now," and don't, that's when people lose interest. Now, was there anything else? :)
@AZSnakepit pt3 . Who is the best Diamondback to date since franchise birth? If you say Junior Spivey you lose all credibility. GETIT#Dbacks— Somody@BR88 (@SomodyBR88) May 13, 2014
Junio... Er, never mind. Hands down, Randy Johnson. I just wish I'd been paying more attention when we had him, because it'll be a very, very long time (if ever) before we get to see his like again in a Diamondbacks jersey.

Which might have been involved in our Delusional Tweet of the Week:
Think about it tho: Goldschmidt is a beastly first baseman, Brewers weakest link is first base... DBacks have a bad record, might make trade— Brewers Schmucks (@BrewersSchmucks) May 7, 2014
Diamondbacks 3, White Sox 9
Alright dbacks 2-2, 1 out bases loaded and bot one guy is lifting a finger to stretch or throw. Then give up a GS and still nobody moves— Joey Longo (@LongLongo5) May 10, 2014
Breaking news: @Dbacks pitcher Brandon McCarthy throws glove in disgust after giving up 7 runs in the 4th. The glove was high and outside.— John D'Anna (@azgreenday) May 10, 2014
Diamondbacks 4, White Sox 3
@whitesox Might be Jerry Reinsdorf. Guys in the Dbacks booth noted this. Let's be careful out there.— Lon Thomas (@lontjr) May 10, 2014
Hawk says #DBacks need Trumbo back because of "RBIs and protection". I think he's trolling.— Nawaf (@NawafDET) May 11, 2014
Diamondbacks 5, White Sox 1
Dbacks players always look like they're doing those FSAZ promos at gunpoint. Those are filmed at like 7 am on spring training photo day— Zach Buchanan (@azc_zachb) May 11, 2014
Great game by Anderson! I say we name the ballpark after him! #dbacks— freeraja (@free_raja) May 11, 2014
Diamondbacks 5, Nationals 6
Collmenter with 1-out double down right field line; he didn't want to head to second but 1st base coach McKay all but shoved him over there— scott bordow (@sbordow) May 13, 2014
Great game Dbacks. No need to watch the top of the 9th as Addison Reed has this game locked down...wait, what happened?— Nathan Kometh (@nkometh) May 13, 2014
