The Week in Diamondbacks Tweets

An egregious violation of the flag code, Star Wars night, and cursing in French are included this week!

I love it when players just quietly engage fans on Twitter.

Credit to both, though: the conversation ended cordially, and I think valuable lessons were learned. :)

The Games in Diamondbacks Tweets

Evidence that even futility with the bases loaded is cool in French. I won’t translate the opening sentence, because this is a family-friendly(ish) site, but for the NSFW inclined, I’ll just leave this here. But it then goes on, “A turning point where you could kill the game... Double play. I’m tired of it. MLB is a league of morons.” Some things, it appears, are clearly universal. But never say we’re not educational, and nice to see someone supporting the D-backs from France - even if apparently for betting-related reasons.

Steve may or may not know. But Derek Holland certainly does, since his handle on Twitter is... @Dutch_Oven45. He seems to have a nicely surreal sense of humor. After a ESPN graphics gaffe labeled him on-screen as “Derek Lastname”, he is now trying to use that as the name on his jersey for Players’ Weekend.

Paging Zavada’s Mustache...

Diamondbacks 4, Giants 5

Or, better yet, never have another Facebook Watch game again. But I guess that’s too much to hope for... I think the final straw was when one of the commentators opined in the ninth, after the Giants tied it, “Now this game is getting good.” Sheesh, at least TRY and hide your bias on a national broadcast, please.
