The Arizona Diamondbacks are streaking now. Red hot are those snakes who've now won six of their last seven games and are sneaky close to .500. A couple more wins and that magic line is in hand for the NL West's third-place team.â†µ
Glorious times are here and if that won't get you out to Chase Field on Saturday night, how about a little All-Star Game Garden Gnome action.â†µ
For the first 15,000 fans through the gate, that Garden Gnome will be yours. Arrive early for this prize.â†µ
We've attempted to confirm reports that the above pictured gnome is modeled off Diamondbacks utility man, Ryan Roberts. The resemblance is uncanny and undeniable but the fine folks in the MLB marketing office refused to confirm that Roberts was used as the inspiration for said gnome. On the other hand, they didn't deny it either.â†µ
Making the gnome even more magical is the chance that yours will include free tickets to the 2011 MLB All-Star Game! Or, the box the gnome comes in could include little tiny gnome turds. But don't worry, they don't smell and if you plant them in your garden more gnomes will grow.â†µ
Saturday night's game features Micah Ownings making his return to the mound as a starter and will be facing Scott Baker of the mighty Minnesota Twins.
