I escaped from my Cyberian captors, just in time to declare the winners of last week's 'design a robot to help the D-backs' challenge:

Gold-star_medium

if(timeToAnalyzeRoster) {
while(stillWorkingThroughRoster) {
Player playerToAnalyze = getNextPlayerFromRoster();
if(!sucks(playerToAnalyze)) {
playersToKeep.add(playerToAnalyze);
}
else if(isRenoFiller(playerToAnalyze)) {
whine();
sendPlayerToReno(playerToAnalyze);
}
else if(isOldAndBroken(playerToAnalyze)) {
whine();
blameKT();
dfa(playerToAnalyze);
}
else if(isBeingUsedImproperly(playerToAnalyze)) {
whine();
blameGibby();
blameKT();
playersToKeep.add(playerToAnalyze);
}
else {
rationalize(playerToAnalyze);
playersToKeep.add(playerToAnalyze);
}
}

while(playersToKeep.size() < 25) {
if(youngTalentAvailable()) {
playersToKeep.add(callUpYoungTalent());
}
else {
playersToKeep.add(signAgingFormerPadre());
}
}
}

A pulse of dying power in a clenching (broken) Goldy fist

Chicks dig the velo!

Given to all three outfielders so they can catch all of the balls that are blasted into the seats by opposing hitters.

Carson Palmer, he goes long

The machine we have been waiting for...

Now release the entire bullpen.

In honor of our Fearless Leader's wife's passion project, Phoenix FearCon, this week's challenge:

If the 2014 Diamondbacks season was a horror film, what would be the plot?

As usual, rec the ones you like, otherwise Gibby Krueger will enter your dreams and make you intentionally throw at Andrew McCutchen.
