Tweet of the Week
@AZSnakepit @DHern_30 twitter really is the best thing and the worst thing in the world all rolled into one…— Daniel Hudson (@DHuddy41) July 19, 2016
The trigger for this discussion was seeing that both Hudson and former team-mate David Hernandez had both replied to Twitter trolls:
Baseball moms out here trolling now! Dang! https://t.co/ohFX7tMM96— Daniel Hudson (@DHuddy41) July 18, 2016
I'm sorry Adam I ruined your night. https://t.co/1MueoPTbt3— David Hernandez (@DHern_30) July 19, 2016
You'll notice the absences of the Tweets they were quoting. For what was particularly amusing was that both of the trolls reacted in the same way to having their messages retweeted by the targets - they deleted their accounts entirely. C'mon, people. If you're going to talk shit at someone, stay for the rest of the conversation! It is literally the least you can do.
Trevor Bauer, still being himself.
Sooooo...suggestions on getting your drone out of a tree? It's stuck in the branches about 60 feet up at the top of a large tree— Trevor Bauer (@BauerOutage) July 18, 2016
Attempt one failed. In search of a water balloon launcher now.— Trevor Bauer (@BauerOutage) July 18, 2016
Appreciate all the suggestions. The tree is in a public park though so fire and chainsaws aren't going to cut it. Pun intended— Trevor Bauer (@BauerOutage) July 18, 2016
Have called about 10 tree services. No one will answer. Still have not been able to retrieve my poor little friend— Trevor Bauer (@BauerOutage) July 18, 2016
But I am pleased to report a happy ending to this saga.

A.K.A Night of the Sombreros
Can't see because of this stupid dodger fan wearing a awesome Dbacks sombrero @Dbacks pic.twitter.com/6NZidNOLFz— Joshua rodriguez (@AzredrockJoshua) July 17, 2016
But this ill-considered (for sightline purposes, at least) promo idea cut both ways
.@Dbacks a dodgers fan just asked out group to take off our Sombreros so they could see. How do you suggest we reply? #thisissnakecountry— Brian Hamm (@bhamm480) July 17, 2016

Meanwhile, in the "Topical AND amusing" section.
Weeks saw a rare Pokemon over in section N. Throwing the bat seemed reasonable.— Bruhette (@AzSportsGirl63) July 17, 2016

Only member of a group of 10 at DBacks game not partaking in The Wave. #TeamNoWave #StayTheCourse— Brian Pedersen (@realBJP) July 17, 2016
The Week in McCarthy Tweets
I want to see Fernandez challenge Ortiz. I want to see Kershaw play SS, Ichiro pitch and Bumgarner hit cleanup. I don't want it to count.— Brandon McCarthy (@BMcCarthy32) July 13, 2016
@gregaberto yes. Even went to a costume party as him once because I'm lazy— Brandon McCarthy (@BMcCarthy32) July 14, 2016
@JoeMande @davidcho we have a lot in our clubhouse. I will sell it to you black market style for 1 dollar per chew.— Brandon McCarthy (@BMcCarthy32) July 13, 2016
But, in the end, it's all just a dumb game
Your reminder that there is other stuff, which actually matters.
Thx 4 thoughts & prayers 4 Amy. She is very private but lots of rumors, so we shared what I sent staff yesterday. We pray 4 all fighters.— Derrick Hall (@DHallDbacks) July 18, 2016
