If LA Times readers are confused by tomorrow's game story, it'll be 'cause @dylanohernandez ate a Churro Dog and passed out on his keyboard.— Zach Buchanan (@azc_zachb) April 12, 2015
And, a Tweet that was subsequently deleted, but not before I screenshot it.
Hey, I laughed.

I don't want to say Hellickson works slow but the grounds crew is going to have to mow the lawn between each inning.— Jeff Summers (@azjazzyj) April 9, 2015
Don’t worry, Heston. 50 Cent’s pitch was still worse than that.— Diamondback Fans (@DbackFans) April 9, 2015
Any Tweet that quote Burns automatically gets a spot here.
So Machi would rather have #Dbacks Cliff Pennington on the bases than Aaron Hill. As Robbie Burns said, the best laid plans gang aft a-gley— Jack Magruder (@JackMagruder) April 9, 2015

Opposing pitchers with the same amount of letters in their names face each other first in the same inning and both strike out! @Dbacks— Frank Rubio (@_FrankRubio) April 11, 2015

The week in McCarthy Tweets
I thought long and hard over whether to continue curating the best McCarthyisms, given he's no longer a Diamondback. It was one thing to continue to follow him when he'd been traded to the Yankees - that wasn't his fault - but signing with the Dodgers of you own free will is almost inexcusable. I feel sure that very act removed the last vestige of humanity from his being, leaving him nothing but a hateful, soulless automaton.

Oh, all right then...

"who ya gonna call?" "I dunno. Whichever Ghostbusters has the best yelp reviews I suppose."— Brandon McCarthy (@BMcCarthy32) March 10, 2015
Which is a great segue into this final thought...
