Last week I asked you to motivate the Diamondbacks to play better. Since then they have moved back into the first wild card position, so obviously, whatever you guys did, worked. Let’s find out!

And to round out our “podium,” we have another multi way tie between Keegan Thompson, Diamondhacks, and TylerO with one rec each. For simplicity sake, I am invoking my authority as PYW Commish and instituting a new rule that if a winning post only has one rec, I won’t be including it in the weekly update. They will however get a mention and their updated score recorded.

Speaking of, let’s see those new scores!

Oldenschoole-10
Keegan Thompson-8
Hazzard21-9
TylerO
MrMrrbi-6
hotclaws-3
AzRattler-1
Diamondhacks-1

And now for the prompt. This weekend is Player’s Weekend, which despite my sometimes cynical comments about it, I’m really enjoying. However, some of the players are really having the fun with it they should be. So what I want you to do is to take a player who you just aren’t feeling their chosen nickname and give them a better one. Go!
