The Week in Diamondbacks Tweets

As the Beatles famously sang, “8 games a week.” At least there are in this round-up, thanks to a Thursday day-game!

Tweet of the Week

Hey, those T-shirts look familiar... :)

Honorable mentions

The Games in Diamondbacks Tweets

Diamondbacks 6, Dodgers 8
Diamondbacks 3, Cubs 8

That’s an interesting and positive way to look at it. There’s no denying the atmosphere at Chase for the Dodgers and Cubs series last week was much more intense than usual - “playoff atmosphere” was frequently used to describe it. However, I’d hope that in the event of any actual playoff games, the crowd would more heavily favor the home team. I suspect a good few season ticket holders sold their seats for those games: that should not be the case for, say, an NL Division series against the Dodgers. Certainly right about Arizona being a melting pot.

On the other hand...

Diamondbacks 6, Cubs 2

I don’t normally include my own work, but in response to a number of requests:

Maybe this could be a future Pit Your Wits contest. “Ask for your tacos, ______ style” - fill in the blank, and explain your reasoning.

Diamondbacks 2, Cubs 7
Diamondbacks 2, Astros 0
Diamondbacks 4, Astros 9
Diamondbacks 5, Astros 9
Diamondbacks 4, Astros 0

That’s a nicely positive way to look at it. And not without some truth. At 74.7%, the percentage of pitches thrown by the D-backs with which hitters make contact, is the lowest in franchise history [previous low = 75.3% in 2003]
