The Week in Diamondbacks Tweets


The three days in Vegas where I was able to delegate this task to Clefo [for which, I thank him] resembled a refreshing key lime sorbet of complete Twitter oblivion. It’s weeks like this which make me wish the season was over, purely so I could get the hell off Twitter. For when the D-backs have a bad week, this article becomes... a real chore. Let’s leave it at that, and move onward, ever onward, in search of some much-needed positivity.

Tweet of the Week

Poor Cody Decker. Our Reno Aces player (and sometime pitcher) was also in Vegas, but what happened there failed to stay there, ruthlessly exposed instead, courtesy of his wife’s social media account.

But just like last edition’s Tweet of the Week about Archie Bradley’s dog, there was a happy reunion here. Though Cody’s phone was rather more worse for wear than the canine...

Honorable mentions

Olbermann of the Week

Why be an Olbermann once, when you can copy and paste exactly the same Tweet six different times, in six different conversations!

The Games in Diamondbacks Tweets

Diamondbacks 3, Padres 6

Ah, yes. The Big Unit in the booth was... interesting. There was a point at which I thought the broadcast would be replaced by stomping and muffled screams. As usual, Johnson’s presence radically divided viewers, as shown by the following tweets, both timed at exactly 7:45pm!

Diamondbacks 3, Padres 1

I’m guessing that “The Padres make the playoffs!” is quite possibly, therefore a Tweet which has never been legitimately sent...

Diamondbacks 20, Padres 5
Diamondbacks 3, Padres 4
Diamondbacks 5, Rockies 3

What the heck, let’s have some more fan art, just because.

Diamondbacks 2, Rockies 19
Diamondbacks 1, Rockies 5

And then, it went... wrong.
