Pit Your Wits Week 3: You ARE the Law!

Bat-speed. Defense. Battlestar Galactica.

Cameron Spencer

Last week I challenged you to channel your inner troll and write a "Diamondbacks are gritty" joke. Let's take a look at the winners.


"You know what grit rhymes with?"

"Mitt, which is what Mark Trumbo needs. LET’S GO TO THE GIF 500 TIMES. You know what else it rhymes with? Lit, as in what those headhunting pitchers are going to be. Lit up, that is. Also shit. That one too."



After a tough loss,

KT walks his cowboy boots into a bar and parks his dejected self down, between a prostitute and a blind man.

"Is that you, KT?" asks the blind man. "Your gritty musk precedes you".

When KT doesnt answer, Derrick Hall chimes in from the opposite side: "Yes, Bertie. It’s KT."

How you play the game is for college ball. When you're playing for money, winning is the only thing that matters. - Durocher


"To measure grit"

Its bigger than a passed ball by Montero! Its bigger than one of those vary rare Trumbombs that go for miles at ends! Its bigger than the Dodgers payroll and Puigs attitude combined!
Its grit! And it rhymes with wit! And your gonna be pitting your wits all too soon!

After two weeks, the standings look as such:

Name Gold Silver Bronze Total Points
Diamondhacks 1 1 0 5
kishi 1 0 0 3
Clefo 1 0 0 3
imstillhungry95 0 1 0 2
4 Corners Fan 0 1 0 2
Jim McLennan 0 1 0 2
benhat 0 1 0 2

PR151 0 0 1 1

This week's prompt:

You're the prospect writer for the Worldwide Leader In Sports. Pick a Diamondbacks Minor Leaguer, and crush his dreams by coming up with an inane reason why he'll fail!

As always, entries due next week, and bonus points if you get in any fights or hissy fits on Twitter over your prediction. Don't worry, no one can see you cry yourself to sleep at night!
