As I sit here, on the 17th week of Pit Your Wits, and think of something pithy and non-related to write in this opening paragraph part that kills enough time until the jump in a fashion that does not look weird on the page, I sometimes wonder if it's worth it. But then I remember a quote that Jonah Lehrer made up: "Clefo is totally cool and should totally keep doing this kind of thing, plus he's a better person than me" - Mohandas K. Gandhi.
Last week, I asked you to divine what was going on in that behind closed doors in that meeting last week in Los Angeles between Stephen Drew and Kirk Gibson. Y'all did not disappoint. Follow after the jump for results and this week's challenge.
Here are the standings:

Bit of housekeeping. I was asked over the tweety last week about second half standings and separating first and second half. I am keeping track of second half points, but in private. I want to keep the leaderboard an overall one since the second half prize will be shiny, (like, eggshell or so), but the overall prize is meant to be super shiny (like gloss).
Anyway, this week's challenge delves back into the realm of simple poetry styles. In your life, you probably were made to write an acronym poem in elementary school. An acronym poem is where you take something (like your name) and use the letters in it to form the first letters of sentences and thoughts, going down. For example, if your name was Bob:
It's a fairly straightforward concept. What I want you to do this week is to make one using the word "DIAMONDBACKS". Only Diamondbacks, anyone who tries to circumvent the "IAMOND" and just use "D'Backs" will be disqualified. It would be like bringing a peasant to a knight fight.
