Pit Your Wits '16: Week 8

Last week was kind of hectic for me, with a combination of car troubles, Comicon, and some personal issues going on, so unfortunately I kind of forgot about Pit Your Wits until last Tuesday. Anyway, we're back this week, with late Comicon inspired post!

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Two weeks ago, I asked you to come up with walk up music for the Dbacks. Oldenschoole far and away won with his suggestions for the majority of the team and the front office. I'm not going to copy and paste it here, because it is longer than most of these articles are in their completed state, but I will link to it and you should go read it, if you haven't already. Well worth it.

Ten points to Oldenschoole

After that gem, most people, wisely I have to admit, stayed home. However, we did get a few brave souls who dared go head to head with Oldenschoole's submission. In second, with a point total that would normally net her first place, we find onedotfive! "You’re No Good" for Shelby Miller

"Poor, Poor, Pitiful Me" for the rest of the team

Not one shred of evidence exists in favor of the idea that life is serious.

In third place, we have TylerO!

Totally generic

All batters: "Another One Bites the Dust"

All pitchers: "Ring of Fire"

Continue until marked improvement is observed…

Just when I find a suitably pessimistic sig, they do something positive!

And this kids is why I changed up how the points system works this season. In one week, Oldenschoole went from a distant fifth place to contending for the lead with just one comment. Just goes to show that even if you haven't participated yet this season, it is never to late to start!


I was going to do this prompt last week, when it was a little more timely, but I still like it even though it's a little late, so we're going to do it anyway. I want you to pick three Dbacks players/personnel and tell me who they would cosplay as if they went to Phoenix Comicon. Go!
