Clinching Tweet of the Week
Nothing like stopping at the store for kids' lunches after clinching. No people that smell is not a spill in the liquor aisle, that is me.— Jody Jackson (@Jody_Jackson) September 25, 2017
Yes, Jody - we have all used that old chestnut “I wasn’t drinking, I was simply standing near some people who had just secured a playoff spot” excuse... I’m here to tell you, it doesn’t work so well on a Wednesday afternoon in January. Especially if you’re not actually a baseball reporter...
Words don't decide baseball games.— Derek Montilla (@Cap_Kaveman) September 24, 2017
Crazy voodoo rituals do. https://t.co/43Yy1nwZVj
Remember those words for Wednesday. Because, trust me: all the crazy voodoo rituals in the world will be getting called upon from this end.
Selfie with plastic sheeting. Post-season celebration? Or serial murderer kill room? YOU decide...
The games in Diamondbacks Tweets
Diamondbacks 13, Marlins 11
There are some airmen here at the ballpark and I want to thank them for their service, and punching in the face for trying to start the wave— ISH95 (@imstillhungry95) September 23, 2017
My God, I'm here in person for a Rodney 1-run save. I may not survive. Stay tuned— Mindy (@SongBird3411) September 23, 2017
Diamondbacks 6, Marlins 12
Thank you @Dbacks for the video tribute & awesome fans welcoming me back— grateful for the memories! Really special time in my career!— Brad Ziegler (@BradZiegler) September 23, 2017
Have fun with this one. I wouldn't be able to do it. It would just be the phrase "in play, run(s)" in small text— Cumulus (@CumulusChoir) September 24, 2017
Diamondbacks 3, Marlins 2
This girl has a sign at the Dbacks game that says "Jake Lamb is cuter than my dad" & I have a feeling she's gonna regret that in a few years— κηοcκουτ (@knockoutxo) September 24, 2017
Diamondbacks 2, Giants 9
Giants just scored some runs. #Dbacks now trail by 3. We'll let you know if tonight's score improves.— Arizona Diamondbacks (@Dbacks) September 26, 2017
Ah, the ennui is overpowering...
If I were the dbacks I would have started all card board cut-outs of the Starters against SF.— Derek L. F. (@babydeekus) September 26, 2017
I think this is what actually happened, wasn’t it? I can’t conceive of any other way we could possibly have lost to Buster and the Seven Dwarfs...
Diamondbacks 11, Giants 4
A couple of interesting ideas on the J.D. Martinez front.
There we go. GoFundMe drives are all very well, but that’s small potatoes. We need to be thinking big here. A quarter-cent sales tax raised $238 million to build the ballpark, and I’m pretty damn sure doing so for Martinez would have rather more public support!
Even if JD Martinez only plays half a season with the Dbacks, retire his jersey #dbacks— JC (@JC_2594) September 27, 2017
If he takes us to a World Series victory, before leaving as a free agent, I would not necessarily object to this idea!
Diamondbacks 4, Giants 3
Saw #Dbacks gave up 2 runs in first. Forgot they moved Greinke out of spot and was like, who's pitching? Shipley. It all makes sense now— Scott Allen (@azsportsguy) September 27, 2017
