Tired: getting mad about bullpen usage in May.— ZM (@ZM_sportsball) May 5, 2018
Wired: getting mad about the game before, also in May, when your favorite team got to face Pedro Baez in long relief and did absolutely nothing against him.
And to think, I worry about buying a jersey, in case that player gets traded...

There is a staggering number of woman wearing yoga pants as regular pants at the DBacks game. #stopit— Sweet Lisa (@LisaGRPh) May 5, 2018
It finally happened! We have our first doomsayer of 2018! #NotSureIfSeriousThough

It finally happened, #2!
I’d like to thank Colin McHugh for being the first to use my services. It’s been a lonely month, but worth the wait! Now just need a Dback to roll with me! #dbacks— Dbacks Bullpen Cart (@dbacksbullpncrt) May 6, 2018
Waiting for the tweet from Trevor Bauer that says the #Astros gained an unfair advantage by using the bullpen cart.— Steve Gilbert (@SteveGilbertMLB) May 6, 2018

You have a one person at the Dbacks game yelling loud enough for field mic to pick him up yelling “Let’s Go Cena”. I’m sure those around him are thrilled.— Thomas M (@Kilted_Texan) May 6, 2018

AJ Pollack is less a human, more a cyborg engineered by scientists to do nothing but lock down centerfield and mash dingers. Insane. #dbacks— Jake Randall (@Ella_Jake_) May 9, 2018

Here's hoping the @Dbacks beat the @Dodgers AGAIN, but @DieterRuehle is killing it with the @depechemode songs on the organ tonight. Enjoy the Silence, Just Can't Get Enough and Shake the Disease!! Well done!— Vinny Joe _____ (@Vincemarotta) May 10, 2018
I’d noticed them too, being a DM fan. There’s something weird about hearing songs you know played on a ballpark organ - it’s a bit like the player-piano renditions in Westworld, if you watch that show. They’re both recognizable and... . Anyway, turns out it was in honor of lead singer Dave Gahan’s birthday.
I’m with @Dbacks and yes although different teams I cannot get anything done— Shawna Rhodes-Valdez (@bee0pEnMiNd3D) May 10, 2018
Ah, procrastination - the thing which brings fans of all teams together. I know exactly what they mean though. Trying to do something as innocent as watch regular TV while the D-backs are playing is almost impossible, because I find myself surreptitiously sneaking peeks at Twitter, Gameday or Fox Sports Go, “just to check in”. And if it’s this bad now, what it is going to be like down the pennant stretch? It’s a bad habit and I must break it.
Just, hopefully not until the end of October. :)
