Pit Your Wits ‘18: Week 6

New, 15 comments

Last week, I asked you to come up with a way for Bradley to pitch every game, and we need it more than ever now...

In first place, we find a very timely suggestion from pop culture:

It’s simple: give Bradley the Infinity Gauntlet

There he can use all 6 stones to guarantee he pitch 1 inning every day.Sure the Soul gem needs a sacrifice, but hey, thats what Baxters for!

In second place...

Archie can learn the knuckleball

Takes nothing out of your arm. Like having a catch with your kid sister.Or, he could attend the Daniel Descalso Institute of Pitching.

And we have a tie for third place

Enhance Archie using Cybernetics

So his body and arm never tires. Have him pitch all 9 innings in 162 games, save money on not having to buy a bullpen while Archie makes $50M a year and use the rest of the budgeted payroll for the best offensive lineup possible.

A couple new names join the leaderboard, and it looks like we have a tie at the top now.

In the past week, we’ve heard some news about the status of the stadium dispute. Pretty much, the Diamondbacks got everything they want, and, at least from how I’m reading, they’re going to be leaving Chase Field as soon as they can or 2022, whichever comes first. I haven’t seen any discussion of this, but it seems likely to me that the pool won’t be making the trip to the new stadium. That means, they’re going to need a new gimmick. That’s your challenge for the week. Find a gimmick for the new stadium. As a not so friendly reminder, Nacho Slides are still banned from competition. Go!
