Summer!
ARCHIE MY MAN
It’s pretty nice having good Archie back. Also thank you nick for the W, put the team on your back
bradley! ballgame! summer!
ARCHIE BRADLEY SPITS ON YOUR COORS FIELD
How great would it be for Archie to vanquish Dodger Stadium, Coors Field, and Tapia all in the span of 2 appearances.
Don't stop me now!
That’s 2 only 1 to go
Lmao "FUCK"
Hell yeah Arch. That was a missed strike call but he came back to still get him.
I think you meant to say "2 down."
1 down.
C'mon Crash Landing. Let's finish this
Or more beer is going down the hatch
Ok, Archie. Don’t fuck it up.
Nice job TJ!!!
Now Archie next inning against his nemesis Tapia...hold me
TJ
You're not gonna catch Locastro with anything less than a near-perfect throw.
Also I could have gone my whole life without hearing "Edge of Seventeen" in a goddam commercial. Nothing is sacred I guess. :(
That kid had a hell of a flat top.
Even if he didn't score, I'm glad Locastro has kept his perfect steal record in tact. Eleven for eleven!
I hope I can find a girl who loves me like Bob loves Dee Jay La May Hew.
Marte is having no luck tonight
Lofastro strikes again
He looks like he got in there.
He’s def safe
Nats are talking to Greg Holland apparently
They're just trying to secure their place as worst bullpen in MLB, I guess?
Good, we’re behind them in the race
Nice try Kevin Sumlin but I'm not going to forget that shitstain of a season you put up last year until you un-break Khalil Tate
Thank god they got out of that inning unscathed
Hell of a job by Yoshi and TJ to get out of that mess.
Still 2 more innings, this series is going to kill me
wonder why they were setting up high on 0-2 and 1-2 counts in a double play situation with a ground ball pitcher
Who knows
It’s Coors so I’m fully expecting us to give this up
I’m coincidentally in Denver and I’m watching the game on TV and these Rockies commentators are so boring
Yeah. I've tried them. Not impressed.
Fuck yeah! Stros fan here, just really fucking happy to see Josh get a multi-hit game his first day up!
Happy to have him. Enjoy Grienke. He was one of our favorites.
Seth beer is next
Beer down
I LOVE JOSH ROJAS Y'ALL
(I may be biased though)
ROYJAS
Rojas already making a name for himself!
I LOVE HIM
So this is what the future looks like huh?
I like Rojas
We just winning trades left and right I love it
We deserve this for living through the dark times aka the La Russa/Stewart years
Yes let’s go
Alright Rojas needs a nickname
Josh Reds
Stud
Fuck yeah go Josh!
WE WON THE TRADE
Rojas tha Gawd
ROJAS RBI BABY
Random ponderings: what's the point of signaling foul tips that are caught? Whether or not it was a foul tip, if caught, doesn't change the outcome. I understand signaling if it was not caught, to let everyone know the batter is still alive. Are foul tips a statistic that's tracked or something?
A foul tip on a pitch with two strikes would equal an out. Not sure why they call it when there's not two strikes though. Maybe so that the runners know its not a live ball at that point when there's not two strikes. A foul tip into the glove on a non strike 2 count would be a dead ball I believe
Not really tracked no
Yes yoshi
That’s my fuckin boi yoshi, good shit
Atta boy Yoshi
Yoshi pls
Any relation between your two Kellys? That'd be kinda rad if you had a closely related catcher/pitcher pair.
Not AFAIK.
Nope, would be cool tho
I'm scurred...
Nothing you can do about that.. shit
The nice thing about having a great farm system is guys like Merrill are expendable because we can just call up someone who has more potential. Hopefully this is the end of having bad starters
I agree in general but tbh I don’t think we have many super good pitching prospects who we can call up who will pitch well consistently
Isn't Merrill still a rookie with potential? How short of a leash do you want on these guys?
BEST BOIS:
CARSON KELLY SOLO HOMER 🐐
GOAT
Carson Kelly is the most clutch Dback this season. It's insane how he has consistently stepped up when the team needs it
Three homers...lolcoors
Popping in to congratulate Rojas on his first hit. This game is wild btw.
A few more runs would be cool but I'm starting to trust the 7-8-9 of Yoshi/Chafin, Yoan and Archie more
Well Coors will be the ultimate test for them.
It's crazy how in just a couple weeks we now trust our bullpen more than our rotation
I just got home from work. Whenever I work long nights something good happens. Well folks, time to sell my soul to this job (as if I haven't already) and stay there forever. The Dbacks are going to win the World Series this year!
C O O R S
Carson Kelly and go ahead homers. Name a more iconic duo
Clocked off for my break right when Nick hit his HR and started typing this when Cars got his. Guess I’m not going back to this shift.
Of course when I was watching earlier we looked like shit so I went to make dinner and we take the lead. Guess I should keep not watching :(
IM HAVING FUN AGAIN
This is looking more like batting practice
CARSON KELLY
Merrill Kelly in line for the win now. I’m done
CAR SON KEL LY
CLAP CLAP CLAPCLAPCLAP
AINT NOTHING LIKE A HR DERBY
I ❤️ Carson Kelly
That's Coors field for you.
CAPTAIN CLUTCH
I want to go troll that bitch who was talking smack to us in the first
Behave!
Now we're up...Fucking Coors
THIS IS FUN I GUESS
Holy shit
KELLY
COORS
I wonder if Ahmed is gonna win another Gold Glove? He's the leader in Dwar on Bbref but on Fangraphs he's tied with Story and Baez
He should
KELLYYYYYYYYYYYYY
CARSON “MIKE PIAZZA” KELLY
Congrats to Rojas on his first hit. First of many to come.
Hubby sat down one minute before all those runs scored. I've informed him he is not allowed to leave.
Tied up!!
I was honestly thinking about commenting about being down by 4 runs, then we clawed back to down by one. Then we went back to down by 3, and thought about it again.
Now were tied and the only thought I've got is "Fucking Coors"
Kelly has to love getting the support. Hopefully give him energy to get back at it and perform better in his next outing
S L I C K N I C K
THICC DICC NICCCCCCCCCCCCCCC
EXTEND THE MAN NOW HAZEN
Atta boy Big Dick Nick!
SLICK NICK
THE MAN WITH A BIG DICK
FUCK YEAH!!!!
Extend Nick after this game
I WANT NICK AHMEDS BABYS
BRO WTF
NICK YOU FUCKING MAD MAN I LOVE YOU
BIG DICK NICK AGAIN!!!!
ROJAS
Lamb Chop!!
LAMB CHOP
Maybe ill shit talk Jake more.
LAMB CHOP!!!!!
Gotta get the bats going. Kelly stuck through it and got us to the 6th without crackin into the bullpen. Not a great outing but got to give him the nod for doing what he can to keep the bullpen out of the game. Those two homers sucked, could be a 1 run game still but give him credit for bouncing back after each solo HR.
https://imgur.com/a/0PwqRQ5
Alright, 2 more now Kelly get through this shit.
My god the Rockies play like the best team in the league against us.
It feels like most teams do
K wtf
Time for the yank
Welp that sucks but that's just baseball
That sucks back to back line drives and nothing to show for it
Walker deepness
Knock em home Esco, you are due
Lambert's name seems like a joke. It's like what Jake Lamb's name would be if he were included in a Dilbert cartoon. Dilbert, Dogbert, and Lambert.
Or if he were French. Jaques Lam-bair.
Lol Dogbert
Yeeeesssss, Dyson!
I haven't been in a GDT in what feels like a month. My cousin got married and I became a de facto groomsman. This weekend was a blast. Go Dbacks!
Congrats to your cousin! Fun for you!
Glad Kelly got through 4. It would have sucked to have to dip into our bullpen that early. I say let him stay for one more if he can make it.
So, how's everybody doing?
I'm exhausted. Beginning of the school year always kills me.
More like Nolan AreMADo

When I was like 22 I worked at a bagel shop and went in at 5 am. One time I decided it would be a good idea to stay up drinking until my shift. It was not a good idea.
"Lllladeezangenelmen, this is your cah...thissis yer c-aaah...burp...so anyway thanks for flying Spirit"
Atta boy
EXTEND THE NETTING
Merrill Kelly has blossomed into a legit scrub.
One of our relievers couldn’t have done that??
aaaaand thats what you get for not pinch hitting..
No offense but fuck you Story and fuck you Kelly
Told ya
Didn't I tell you to stop watching?
I get it. You don't pull a player off the bench in the 4th at Coors
Well Kelly you better pitch a 1,2,3 now
Nope
That was so stupid guy has nothing and we don’t pinch hit
This umps zone is fucked
Time to see if 30-50 Merill hogs can rake
So everytime I’ve seen us leave a pitcher to hit to get an extra inning or two, they give up more runs.
Must be your fault then.
Our boy Nick is having a hell of a season
Just don't tell anyone or someone might try to steal him.
Idk man
No pinch hitter???
Nick saves the inning!!
BIG DUB NICK
Nick always picks up the slack
LARGE PENIS NICHOLAS
BIG DICK NICK BABY
Ack. That's the opposite of what I asked for.
Slick Nick comes through!
Might as well have hit into a triple play smh
LITERALLY ANY OTHER SPOT AND WE GET AT LEAST ONE RUN GOD DAMNIT
Cmon Rojas. Be the hero in your first MLB game. You can do it!
Ahmed will though!
Nope
Well
[deleted]
Well..at least it wasn’t a triple play?
Bases loaded for Rojas 👀
THE GRANDEST OF SALAMIS INCOMING
First hit is going to be a grand slam? Amazing
Horse shit call
Please go deep Lamb... fuck
Well maybe this is the inning
Kelly blows, we’re gonna get destroyed by the garbage Rockies. I miss greinke, a greinke/ray/gallen combo would be nice
I just got a PM on reddit shilling a twitch stream, yikes.
I just got something saying it looks like I'm into minecraft. I reported it. The guy had no posts or comments.
Not sure why Bob is so surprised the number 8 hitter is hitting .286... they’re playing in Coors field that’s why
Almost at 60 pitches in the fucking third. End me
You're saying that 20 pitches an inning isn't a recipe for success
The ball rolling on that chalk is a metaphor for us and the .500 line
Bahaha... Might need to gif that.
So if we could not run into the third out with the tying run at the plate anymore that’d be great
