In another edition of Social Media Saturday, the Arizona Diamondbacks shared an overwhelming amount of positivity this week, in every aspect of their lives.

From coming to back to Chase Field after a long road trip to sharing moments from #DbacksGiveBack, most of the Diamondbacks roster had plenty of positive things to share this week on social media.

Let’s kick this one off by agreeing with J.D. Martinez. It’s always a good week when the Diamondbacks are home.

The #DbacksGiveBack was a bright moment on Twitter this week, with Jeff Mathis, Nick Ahmed and their accompanying wives visiting Phoenix Children’s Hospital.

Both players expressed the inspiration and enjoyment they got from the visit.


A few Diamondbacks players also shared some sweet family moments. First, Taijuan Walker sharing a fatherly moment, followed by Gregor Blanco being a proud husband and father.


And if you need some laughs, the Diamondbacks team account shared this hilarious video to preview 90’s night on Friday.

Adding to the fun, David Peralta took to instagram to give fans a look at the sillier sides of Archie Bradley and Chris Owings.


But, this week didn’t come and go without a little scandal.

If you haven’t seen it yet, Archie Bradley was…excited…after game one against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

But, it didn’t stop there as Bradley took to his very active Twitter account to say this:

Bradley spent the better part of this week defending his comments and Our House to fans and critics. But, he also received support from other parts of the Phoenix sports community.

Even Devin Booker added a short, but sweet nod of agreement to Bradley’s message.

Scandal aside, I think we can all agree with Jake Lamb.

And a special shoutout to Archie Bradley, Anthony Banda and Chris Owings, who all celebrated birthdays this week.
