The Week In Diamondback Tweets, May 6-12

A dangerously-near upbeat edition, what with the Diamondbacks having gone 4-2 since last time. But last night's meltdown ensures we don't get TOO giddy with excitement...

Tweet of the Week

Honorable mentions


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.

Ok, I laughed. Sue me. But I guess the friend lives in San Francisco...

Local issues

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.


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? :)

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.
