Last week I challenged you to pick a Diamondback and describe what All-Star skill competition in which they would participate:
in the 5 K
Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted. - William B Cameron 1963
Home Run Derby pitcher
Hitting into Double Plays competition
How will they outdo each other? Runners on 1st, or 2nd, or 3rd. Grounding into them, lining into them, bunting into them, popping up into them. THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS!

Good depth often has to come from within, in the form of younger talent. Depth is hard to build overnight, but it’s easy to deplete.: Jeff Sullican
After 17 weeks the standings look like this:
|4 Corners Fan||0||1||0||2|
Now that we've reached the halfway* point, it's time to start over. Kishi is our first half champion, and starting next week the standings will be cleared away. He'll face off against the second half champion (assuming he doesn't win again, in that case I don't know).
The good news for you, possible participant, is that you don't have a large gap to make-up. Your day is tomorrow. Seize it!
No challenge this week, but if you one want to complain about the Diamondbacks or make jokes about them, then feel free to do it in the comments.
