We continue our weekly words competition this week.


If you can see this, then the SBNation overlords have cleaned up the Mountain Dew that was spilled on the server last night, which is good because it's time for Pit Your Wits! Here's who won last week!

First Place - Zavada's Moustache. 11 Recs.

And now for some truly awful photoshop:

"Young Miley Ross has seen his chances at another World Series stolen by the villainous Bust Posey and he wants revenge. So he calls on United States Marshal Rooster Corbin and Texas Ranger LaGoldshmidt for help in bringing Posey and his gang of Giants to justice."

The Critics rave:

"I hate the title." -Steve B.


"It’s a hit! And that’s coming from someone who knows all about hits. #qualityliterature" -BMcCarthy32

"Haters be disrespectin’ sayin’ they know about True Grit/turns out they don’t know anything at all about it." -Trevor B.

"I don’t know, I didn’t read it." -ESPN

Paul Goldschmidt looks at Tim Lincecum and says "We are going to foxtrot, and I will always lead."

Second Place - imstillhungry95. 5 Recs.

A true classic of baseball science fiction ~ Said no one ever on ESPN

The (Baseball) Foundation Trillogy

A group of gritty baseball players sets out to the edge of ESPN coverage (also known as Arizona) to prepare for the collapse of Major League Baseball as we know it due to the complacency of big money teams. They’ll be guided by the gritty prophecy their Beloved Leader, Kevin Towers, who through the use of his foreknowledge, has foreseen series of crises they’ll encounter along the way, and has set them up to overcome each and every one. However, will they stay on the path that Towers created for them? Or will they stray to their and MLB’s demise?

You keep using that word 'strikezone'. I do not think it means what you think it means.

Third Place - piratedan7. 4 Recs.

Fellowship on the field

The first installment from Kevin Towers and Kirk Gibson that takes us to a universe of an intrepid band of misfits assembled to take on the dynastic evil of the Hard Hurling Giants of Northern California and their evil henchmen of the Rockies. They’ll encounter plucky religious zealots and well paid mercenaries on their quest. It won’t be easy as some of our band will be lost to injury, personal demons and personnel daemons and new friends will be made and some old friends lost along the way.
