The Week in Diamondbacks Tweets

New, 14 comments

More highs, more lows, more laughter, more tears. Yes, it's another week on the Twitter for the Diamondbacks and their long-suffering fans.

If you missed it, bit of a spat broke out between D-backs outfielder Cody Ross and local sports radio host, John Gambadoro, after Ross misplayed a ball in the 9th inning of our 5-4 win over the Rockies on Tuesday. Here's how it started:

Gambo was not taking that lying down:

I believe he also talked subsequently on his show about a text he says Ross sent him. To be honest, I don't think either side came out smelling of roses on this one. Gambadoro's original Tweet was fair comment and didn't deserve the reaction. But he could still have taken the high ground and just moved on, instead of creating A Thing out of it.

Welcome to the majors

It's always entertaining to check out the reactions, when one of our minor-league players gets their first call-up to the show. The latest was Evan Marshall last night, and there were plenty of congratulatory messages on Twitter: It's particularly fun when his wife gets all mock-offended by the fuss...

Twitter question of the week

Answers: Sensible sub-division

Answers: Double tap sub-division

Well, since you have just been made GM, that would kinda imply he had already been fired. On the other hand, absolutely no harm in being safe and doing it twice. And Jill wasn't the only one who wanted to be certain...

Answers: Not sensible at all but probably more fun sub-division
