The Week in Diamondbacks Tweets


Last week in this very column, I wrote, “I don’t think I have ever done one of these where the Diamondbacks have won every game they played that week.” Well, guess what? Just like buses, you wait ages for a 100%-win week to arrive, then two show up, back-to-back. For Arizona just kept winning: through Colorado and on to Los Angeles, in the most startling streak in team history: now 13 consecutive wins, and still counting. The D-backs last lost more than two weeks ago.

Tweet of the Week

Honorable mentions

Wouldn’t normally mention the SnakePit’s own Tweets, but this did become the most-liked in our Twitter history...

The Games in Diamondbacks Tweets

Diamondbacks 9, Rockies 5

Most of the parody Trump accounts are not actually very funny. But I will confess to being amused by this one. Not least its call to “Build an automated strike zone and make the umpires pay for it.” That’s a policy I’m sure we can all get behind. But with regard to the D-backs:

If Rockies Trump liked the D-backs, we would clearly be doing something wrong. Much like Dodgers fans and our Tweets. :)

Not new, perhaps, but always relevant!

Diamondbacks 6, Rockies 2

I’ll take “Statements of clear foreshadowing” for $400, please, Alex.

I dunno... I might have heard something about it on the broadcast. Y’know, just in passing. Not sure.

Diamondbacks 5, Rockies 1
Diamondbacks 13, Dodgers 0

Anyone who follows the SnakePit on Twitter knows my fondness for wrestling GIFs (specializing in joshi puroresu). I had my own one for this game, but am happy to endorse this too:

Diamondbacks 3, Dodgers 1

Alternative explanation: the Dodgers sucked. This seems more credible, even to their own fanbase:

Diamondbacks 3, Dodgers 1

It didn’t last.

Onwards and homewards. Bring on the Padres!
