2017: A Year in Arizona Diamondbacks Animated GIFs

A random grab-bag of moments on and off the field, in a format suitable for use in future Gameday Threads...

We did these back in 2011 and 2012, but with MLB.com now having officially endorsed the GIF format, I decided it was time to resurrect the concept for another year. I trust you are all as ecstatic about this news, as the guy above.

It was definitely the year of this

And also this. For why wait minutes for Martinez home-runs, when you can get all four from his game against the Dodgers in five seconds? Definitely a candidate for /r/BetterEveryLoop...

From the running jokes department, the year gave us #ForeverAlonePeralta

And we all know the feeling when Goldschmidt Happens. But few demonstrated it, quite as effectively, as this fan.

Indeed, even the avian kingdom goes all a-flutter when in Goldschmidt’s presence...

Who’s got the hunting gear when you need it? Paging Fernando Rodney, of course...

Maybe we should have unleashed the Adam Rosales Stare of Death on that bird, and cooked it where it say. That’s an 80 Gaze, if ever. I saw it.

Meanwhile, a sniper takes out third-base coach Tony Perezchica

All you really want from a reliever is the ability to throw strikes...

At the other end of the spectrum, the Diamondbacks got their own version of the disastrous 50 Cent first pitch, with Suns’ first-round pick Josh Jackson throwing just a little wide of the mark.

(Semi-)Finally: Look, if Randy Johnson wants your bagel, just give him your bagel, dammit...

Yes, the Arizona Diamondbacks of 2017: we salute you...
