The Week in Diamondbacks Tweets

New, comments

Late comebacks, marathon games, pitching gems... Truly a week with something for everyone!

@SteveGilbertMLB, via Twitter

Held over from yesterday, due to series previews and Q+As: these four game East coast series really mess up our scheduling. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused...

Tweet of the Week

True when written, even more so after Tuesday’s outing.

Honorable mentions

What Is This ^^^^^ I Don't Even... According to the Aces website, it is, a “Dill pickle stuffed with shredded pork, pepperjack cheese, infused with adobo sauce and gift wrapped in bacon!” ish95 is booking a flight to Reno as we speak... But while we’re on the topic of ballpark food:

Bob Brenly has been absent from the broadcast booth the past couple of days. Are these two things connected? :)

The Games in Diamondbacks Tweets

Diamondbacks 4, Brewers 0

At first, I thought this was a surrealist joke. But, it’s completely true.

I have a twin brother (not identical) whose name is Gregory. And I have a younger brother whose name is Gregsman. So Gregor, Gregory and Gregsman. Why? I still don’t know. My mom said she just liked the names. She even named our house “The Gregs’’ and put up a sign. My twin brother and I have carried on the tradition more or less. My six-year-old son is named Grenyer, and my 18-month-old son is named Gregor Alejandro. Gregory’s son is named Greyver.

The Week in Persecution Complexes

I stumbled across this guy during the Brewers game, complaining about Eric Thames being called out at home plate:

He wasn’t happy when I pointed out it was the pitcher who actually tagged Thames. This was just one element of a spectacular rant, which I’m sure his... er, two followers appreciated. Highlights include:

But turns out to be a bit of a theme, across both sports and other opponents:

I think somebody needs a hug... :)
