If that doesn’t work, maybe just an entire show devoted to Gerardo Parra throwing things. Not even baseballs necessarily, just whatever he can find.

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

So you see that picture of Bo Jackson up there? As you may recall, he was someone who played both Football and Baseball at the highest levels, and was pretty good in both of them. (Looking at his baseball-reference page, it screams "MARK REYNOLDS", but it doesn't do him justice as to how impressive he was to watch.) So this week I want you to dive into a murky world of alternate universes. Choose a current Diamondback, and tell us which sport that he went pro in other than baseball and tell us a little about how he does in that sport. Be creative, funny, clever, etc. Rec the other entries that you like, as one does.

Go for it! Remember, no matter how bad you might feel you do in this challenge, you're still better at it than Jordan Baker is at anything.
