This spring, the Arizona rotation was a fascinating mix of imported and home-grown youth, and Josh Collmenter and Jeremy Hellickson.

This weekend Josh Collmenter will get his very own bobblehead. To promote the occasion Collmenter and his bobblehead read a few "mean tweets" about themselves (himself) which the D-backs posted to Twitter. A couple of the tweets hilariously ridicule his beard and one gives a backhanded compliment to his 84 mph fastball.
