Meme Monday 6/21: Well ShTT

The Dbacks are debris, and someone else is always sweeping

In the latest week of Diamondbacks fandom what have we had to look forward to? Nothing. Torey is checked out, the team is checked out, and Carson Kelly has been added to the IL with a fractured wrist courtesy of Walker Buehler and Dodger-evil. FTD. Props to Caleb Smith for his fine start, though.

At this point The Diamondbacks are like the USS Reliant with Kahn and his bro at the helm just constantly getting blasted-on by...

Series Preview # 24 : Diamondbacks vs Brewers

The hot batters for the Brewers prior to the last series between the Diamondbacks & Brewers were Willy Adames and Kolten Wong. If you like interesting success stories, I recommend this AZ Snake Pit article about Kolten Wong.

Although 3 RBIs on 17 June by Luis Urias was impressive, the hot batter for the Brewers prior to this series was Christian Yelich. As of 17 June, his OPS was .854 with 2 Homers and 11 RBIs in...

Can it get worse? And other questions...

So, how’s it going…?

James: I’ve had better weeks. On the other hand, I am doing a million times better than the Diamondbacks are over the last six weeks, so I have very little room to complain.

ISH95: Going pretty alright. Promoted a new shift manager at work, so hopefully after a little training, I’ll have a little less work on my plate. Other than that, uneventful.

Makakilo: I am grateful for many...

Diamondbacks 8, Dodgers 9. A Tough Dads’ Fight.

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

The D-Backs are surviving at the moment. Today they showed a late glimpse of life by putting up a good fight.

I can imagine Jim’s reaction when I wrote him: “I might need a back-up if the game goes extra innings”. Maybe he thought I was being sarcastic. That would be the most logical explanation for making that remark. Only I wasn’t. I don’t know what had gotten in to me when I wrote that. Extra innings? Jeez. We got close though, but...

Diamondbacks 3, Dodgers 9: Everything is awesome

Sixteen defeats in a row. Oh, and we've lost Carson Kelly.

Record: 20:52. Pace: 45-117. Change on 2004: -7.

Well, here we go. I get the dubious honor of doing a recap, though I guess at this point every writer for this blog is in that boat. So here we go, going in to another game and set to keep adding to that historical loss record. Nice.

At least there is beer.

Let’s see how we’re going to be entertained between innings, shall we?

Last week, I asked you to help the Diamondbacks come up with some new, fun, and exciting activities for between innings. Of heck, maybe even during innings. Not like anything worth watching is happening then anyway, amiright?! /rimshot Anyway. Lots of good suggestions this week, with all three winners being turned red. Leading the way is MrMrrbi!

Absolutely. Even during the...
