Though between the extra game included last week, and the day off on Monday, that will make for a shorter edition here. That’s fine, I’m sure we’ve all got better things to do.

How many Paul Goldschmidt's are there?#TheresOnlyOnePaulGoldschmidt— Lovullo'sBarmyArmy (@SedonaRedArmy) August 5, 2017
I should probably explain. This is a British football chant, sung to the tune of Guantanamera: “One Paul Goldschmidt! There’s only one Paul Goldschmidt.” Hence, the poll choices. Okay, you had to be there. And “there” is probably a damp terrace at Crystal Palace FC in the mid-nineties.

If Goldy doesn't win MVP I'm starting a riot in the streets. And by streets, I mean in my head, to my law enforcement friends. #keepitPC— Mike Robinson (@mkerob) August 6, 2017

Can't tell if there is actually a fair amount of Dbacks fans at Chase or the Doyer fans just get excited anytime the ball moves— Chris Poloni (@Puhlone) August 9, 2017
That's a 15-yard penalty for use of a bow and arrow. Oops, wrong sport. Go ahead, Mr. Rodney.— Charles Lam Jr. (@charlesolamjr) August 9, 2017

If you could ever pick a guy off first base through pure hatred alone, Greinke will do it to Puig here.— Lovullo'sBarmyArmy (@SedonaRedArmy) August 10, 2017
Meanwhile, I was getting some flak for my absence.

In my defense, I had a good excuse:
