Pit Your Wits Week 12: Reed-ing Rainbow!

New, 25 comments

lead-off homer in the sky it will go twice as high take a look this blown save is booked A Reed-ing Rainbow!

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Last week I sent you back in time to save the Diamondbacks, and secure our future. Here's the winning entry as selected by the readers:

and today MLB has announced that Ryan Braun

has been suspended for the postseason series against the Diamondbacks as his urine sample has indicated that Ryan has been a bad young professional……

I used to be disgusted, now I try to be amused....

Manny Ramirez Busted for PEDs in 2003

BosSox don’t win World Series in 2004 and 2007. Ramirez not traded to the Dodgers in 2008. Dbacks win NL West in 2008 and win the World Series the next year. In 2020 grateful DBacks fans rename their state "Melvinzona" after their longtime manager. State becomes a haven for Bostonians fleeing a city ravaged by a race of super baseball players cooked up in the labs of MIT to lift the Curse of the Bambino. Without Bob Melvin and Jarrod Parker, and with Trevor Cahill and Chad Pennington, Billy Beane becomes frustrated and bored and runs for governor of California. He uses metrics to turn the state around.

I understand baseball and I understand statistics. Why don't I understand sabrmetrics?

Mike Zagurski, Clay Zavada, and Brad Ziegler

are all successful, and in 2011 they settle in as lockdown guys in the 7th, 8th, and 9th innings. The three Z’s at the end of the game continuously "put the game to sleep." All of this while all three of them sport Rollie Fingers-like mustaches.

Instead of drafting Bobby Borchering

they drafted Mike Trout. The unintended consequences would have been many.

This week's challenge:

Describe someone who Addison Reed couldn't give up a home run to.

As usual, rec the ones you like,and don't be stingy. In other words, be like Addison Reed in giving up 9th inning home runs.
