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. This is not the first time that the Diamondback pitcher has...

Collmenter dominates Reds in making history

PHOENIX -- Diamondbacks starting pitcher Josh Collmenter did something Thursday night that had been done only once before in team history -- by Randy Johnson on May 18, 2004.
