The Week in Diamondbacks Tweets

24 games in, and we STILL haven’t lost consecutive contests...

Tweet of the Week

More of the Wit and Wisdom of Eric Byrnes later. But rather than further candidates for Tweet of the Week, here’s a particular topic.

Is there a concessions problem at Chase Field?

Grumbling about long waits for food/drink at Chase has always been a thing. But over the weekend, I couldn’t help noticing a torrent of complaints on my feed in Twitter. Here are a few, all from Saturday’s game, where the situation may have been exacerbated by the large crowd for Archie’s bobblehead.

And things appeared to get considerably worse on Sunday... I haven’t actually managed to get to a game so far this year, so can’t say if there is an actual issue here. To those that have been to Chase, does the above seem representative of your experiences?

This afternoon’s game was broadcast exclusively on Facebook, with color commentary by former D-back Eric Byrnes. The Twitterverse was... not kind to Eric, and deservedly so.

On the other hand, Eric Byrnes commentary seems... strangely appropriate for a baseball game streamed on Facebook!
