Tweet of the Week
"Wow, that's weird! Metal sinks!" @MikeJackBauer exclaims after a young man predicted at a replica 2001 World Series ring would float in the Chase Field pool.— Zach Buchanan (@ZHBuchanan) May 11, 2018
Let's maybe spend more money on public education.
And we can’t blame Mike for not trying to sway the decision...
I saw he had the “float” sign & thrice gave hints - even asked if he was sure once he initially said “float.”— Bauer (@MikeJackBauer) May 11, 2018
Nevertheless, he (foolishly) persisted. https://t.co/wUMkg33LFZ
And here’s the ring in question, in case you’re thinking it might have been some kind of cheap plastic knockoff:
Here’s a name from the past - appeared 24 times for the Diamondbacks in 2016, before apparently vanishing off the grid.

If the Dbacks beat the Dodgers in the playoffs this year I've compiled a list of about twenty people I will tweet "fuck you" at— Katherine Wirick (@kwirick) May 11, 2018
@Isaac_2020 just bought raffle tickets at the dbacks game and said “if I win this 15k I’m gonna buy us such nice bedroom furniture”..... is this what growing up feels like??— bxss snxb ⛓ (@brooklynnn_) May 14, 2018
You mean we were *this close* to a nightly lineup intro of “and here’s the batting Order of the Phoenix”? #harrypotter— David Wagner (@dwwagner43) May 14, 2018

Stands at Chase Field aren't very full, making the #Dbacks Zack Greinke grunts from the mound very audible. Greinke is in full, mid-season grunt form tonight.— Bernie Pleskoff (@BerniePleskoff) May 11, 2018
If my fiancé changes her mind my first move will be to slide into Greinke’s changeup’s DMs— Jeff Wiser (@OutfieldGrass24) May 11, 2018

Why I love our team’s beat writers. It began with this Tweet:
The Rockies' ripoff of the Sausage Race is a toothbrush against a tube of toothpaste against a tooth. It is terrible.— Adam McCalvy (@AdamMcCalvy) May 12, 2018
which triggered a stalwart (if, I suspect, tongue in cheek) defense from Nick Piecoro
And then Steve Gilbert got into it, too...
Nick loves the Dental Dash. And don't give him my title. If anyone is an instigator it's me.— Steve Gilbert (@SteveGilbertMLB) May 12, 2018
Is there also a participant that’s tooth decay and gingivitis. If not what’s the point— ryan mceuen (@makattack71) May 12, 2018
There's Toothy, Bristles and Fresh— Steve Gilbert (@SteveGilbertMLB) May 12, 2018

Chase Field WiFi is enough to make me agree with the team that we need a new stadium.— Clue Heywood (@ClueHeywood) May 12, 2018

Because you can’t win them all.

Hey @Dbacks I think the guy behind the plate wearing the giant satellite dish is rebroadcasting the game illegally?— Fred Dell'Ergo (@fdellergo) May 16, 2018
Some were more invested in the outcome of this than others...
This guy bet me that if the brewers win tonight I have to go on a date with him so the @Dbacks better come through and save me from this one.— Pau✨ (@lana_del_paul) May 16, 2018
Phew. Though you have to feel for “this guy” who chose to bet on the only game the D-backs ended up winning this week!
Diamondbacks 2, Brewers 8
And, although we ended the week on a pretty dismal note... Why we still have the best players in baseball.
