Special award for the almost British-level use of understated sarcasm.
@Dbacks My 16yr old is an organ donor.She says she also wants to donate her tendons to MLB for pitchers needing Tommy John surgery.— Lisa Tower (@LisaTower) August 19, 2014
When watching parties go bad...
It looks like the watching party at Macayo's went pear-shaped, because nobody mentioned the venue was going to refuse admission to families. A lot of unhappy people on social media.
Really disappointed in Mycayo's today. The last two #dbacks giveaway events here have been solid.— Taborschmidt (@tabor36) August 16, 2014
The Games in Diamondback Tweets
But first, the rain-out...
Pouring and I might need an ark to get out of this dugout well, but it could be worse I could be John the policeman pic.twitter.com/vC2cmJRmMn— Jody Jackson (@Jody_Jackson) August 13, 2014

Diamondbacks 2, Indians 3
Trevor Bauer just got Didi Gregorius to ground out so I guess the Indians win the trade.— Nick Piecoro (@nickpiecoro) August 13, 2014
The D sure as hell isn't for "defense" today.... #Dbacks— Kirk (@WFNYKirk) August 13, 2014
Diamondbacks 1, Indians 0
I guess this is the Cleveland equivalent of "Andre Ethier went to ASU".
Indians radio drinking game- drink every time Hammy says this DBacks pitcher went to Kent State. We'd all be drunk by now— Rich (@RichPedro) August 13, 2014
I guess joining the wooooooo really helped there..... woooooooo #dbacks got the lead!!!!— Nicole (@nicoleyoty) August 14, 2014
Diamondbacks 4, Marlins 5
Diamondbacks 3, Marlins 2
1 hour before game time here & there appear to be less than 200 people in seats. In fairness it appears the world is ending outside w/storm— Steve Gilbert (@SteveGilbertMLB) August 15, 2014
Diamondbacks 1, Marlins 2
Here we go again with the stupid blocking the plate rule. Identical calls that went against Dbacks catchers just went FOR the Marlins. CRAP— Laurie Laney (@laurielle628) August 16, 2014
That 3-error inning by the D-backs in which the #Marlins failed to score? Only 6th time that's happened in MLB over past 20 years (Elias)— clarkspencer (@clarkspencer) August 17, 2014
Diamondbacks 2, Marlins 10
Yard work. In Phoenix. In August. Gives you some idea of how much fun this game was...
Diamondbacks 4, Nationals 5
Sacrificial Lamb, huh?— Marissa Yvette (@Playbacker2014) August 19, 2014

The week in McCarthy Tweets
forgetting to pack my wearable 'NO, I HAVEN'T SEEN THE WIRE' sandwich board before coming to Baltimore has proven to be disastrous— Brandon McCarthy (@BMcCarthy32) August 12, 2014
are Priceline commercials trying to sell us their services or William Shatner? Cause they make me not want either of them.— Brandon McCarthy (@BMcCarthy32) August 18, 2014
Finally, even by McCarthy's high standards, this one is probably one of the strangest Tweets of all time, when read with no context. So I'll just leave this here.
@theyearofelan did a woman shit into your convertible or not?— Brandon McCarthy (@BMcCarthy32) August 15, 2014
