Figured I might as well throw this one in, considering there was a game this afternoon. Though given the painful nature of the result, I gave serious consideration to skipping it entirely, and including it neither in this round-up nor the one next Thursday. But that would offend my sense of journalistic rigor. Thanks to Charlie for liking Tweets while I was up in Seattle. And onto the Twitter we bravely go...
Tweet of the Week

I should explain, the joke here is in the nameplate. Patrick Kurish is actually the D-backs Manager of Player & Media Relations.
Leaks in our cooling & A/C system from excessive heat & a power outage downtown led to hotter than usual temps in ballpark this weekend.— Arizona Diamondbacks (@Dbacks) June 26, 2017
Is it just me, or is there a subtle undercurrent of “What do you expect, making us play in a festering slum?” which can be seen between the lines here? Related:

What a novel concept. They’ll be taking bets on it in the Las Vegas sports books next...

Hey, Blue. It's a strike when Paul Goldschmidt tells you it's a strike. #Dbacks— Char (@curryalley) June 28, 2017
After the inning of sinning in this one, we had a little visitor
I am evil because I will now go to the DBacks SB Nation site and see how they reacted— Ghabe (@thestlcardsfan4) June 28, 2017
In the light of subsequent events, climaxing in Peralta’s ninth-inning homer, and the subsequent walk-off, I can only quote Mallory Know from Natural Born Killers, as she stomps on a redneck: “How sexy am I now, huh? Flirty boy! How sexy am I now?”

I'm not saying this ump is ruining the game with his bullshit, but on that last k out of the zone, my dog farted and left the room #Dbacks— Mike Smith (@miketvee13) June 29, 2017

Not much to cheer about here, but I would like to salute one of our future educators, who brought a group of kids to Chase Field...

Another update: I've lost track of how many bathrooms breaks I've done. And a kid asked me if the dbacks "scored a touchdown" ♀️— Adrianna (@aortega2462) June 29, 2017
This is why I am not a teacher, folks. I lack the patience of a saint apparently necessary. #GetOffMyDamnLawn
