Pit Your Wits: Week 20

So it turns out that last Saturday just didn't exist and that's why there wasn't a PYW last week. True story. Anyway, moving things along now...

In the last edition, I asked you to come up with an addition to the Dbacks Prize Vault, an annual drawing for those who renew their season tickets. The winners were pretty much across the board demeaning and sarcastic. I approve. In first place, with the most sarcastic of all, we have Diamondhacks!

A refund

Short sweet and to the point. I like it. In second, we have the only person on the podium who didn't go the sarcastic route: Mr. Nate Rowan!

Give them either a shot at batting practice or a bullpen session

Now THAT would be cool

Last, and definately not the least sarcastic, we have aricat!

For this week's prompt, we take a cue from another sport. As I'm sure you've heard, the New England Patriots have been mired in scandal this off-season for a bunch of grown men intentionally deflating their balls. Here in the good, civilized land of baseball, our scandals don't so easily lend themselves to being made fun of. That changes today. I want you to come up with a completely ridiculous scandal for MLB. The one rule is the name of the scandal has to end in -gate. Props if you can make it rhyme. Go!
