Last week I challenged you to pick a Diamondback and describe what All-Star skill competition in which they would participate:

Gold-star_medium

Cody Ross

in the 5 K

Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted. - William B Cameron 1963

Silver-star_medium

Addison Reed

Home Run Derby pitcher

weltanschauung

Martin Prado and Aaron Hill

Hitting into Double Plays competition

How will they outdo each other? Runners on 1st, or 2nd, or 3rd. Grounding into them, lining into them, bunting into them, popping up into them. THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS!

Cards/Bears/Suns/D-Backs/Yotes/Sun Devils

Carson Palmer, he goes long

Good depth often has to come from within, in the form of younger talent. Depth is hard to build overnight, but it’s easy to deplete.: Jeff Sullican

After 17 weeks the standings look like this:

Now that we've reached the halfway* point, it's time to start over. Kishi is our first half champion, and starting next week the standings will be cleared away. He'll face off against the second half champion (assuming he doesn't win again, in that case I don't know).

The good news for you, possible participant, is that you don't have a large gap to make-up. Your day is tomorrow. Seize it!

No challenge this week, but if you one want to complain about the Diamondbacks or make jokes about them, then feel free to do it in the comments.
