The Week in Diamondbacks Tweets

Who broke the ballpark, wildness in Denver and perhaps a Game of Thrones reference or two...

The Games in Diamondbacks Tweets

Diamondbacks 2, Nationals 4
Diamondbacks 6, Rockies 3

I’d be more inclined to throw money to get Bob Brenly - who has clearly never seen an episode in his life - to call entire games using what he believes to be Game of Thrones references. I think it would be surrealist comedy of the highest order.

Diamondbacks 1, Rockies 9

That one works particularly well if you imagine it read by Werner Herzog. Ideally, over footage of a penguin, alone in the Antarctic wilderness. And probably starving to death.

Diamondbacks 2, Rockies 5

In what I can only presume is likely related news, David Peralta no longer follows the SnakePit on Twitter. I think he may have taken offense at our critique of that play. I mean, it’s not like we mentioned he’s hitless in May... Oops. Did I say that out loud? :)

Diamondbacks 3, Tigers 7

Shame! Shame! Shame! [Ding-a-ling...]

Diamondbacks 7, Tigers 1

Surprised this wasn’t followed by a Tweet from Derrick Hall, complaining about the dilapidated and ramshackle state of the ballpark, due to Maricopa County Stadium District.
