Last week, I asked you to to come up with a cure for the Diamondbacks and their terrible, no good, awful slump. No one got the right answer* but there were some good ones. In first place, Hacks, with the only red suggestion

Kendrick’s ‘children’ have been devastated (5w-17L) since he officially two-timed Downtown

She’s been good to him and he should renew his original, 30 year vow with Her. Think of the children

In second place, MrMrrbi, with an actual suggestion that might just work...

Not a sarcastic post

If I was Lovullo, I’d personally throw BP to all the regulars. Just toss easy pitches to them, and loosen them up with some banter, crack some jokes. Lasorda used to do this, especially in the minors. Kind of a one on one “therapy” that shows the skipper really cares about them as people.

And rounding out our top three this week...

Trade Avila for sugar free gummy bears

I mean at least the gummy bears can naturally clean out the bad mojo.

Looking at our updated standings, Hacks picks up a point over second place AzRattler. Remember, the first half of the season ends at the All Star Break, and they just announced the ballots for All Star Voting this week, so we’re quickly approaching it. It’s time to jump in if you’ve been hesitating!

Tip of the cap to Mr. DC for this weeks prompt. Above you’ll see a picture that isn’t one of our usual, trophy-from-an-obscure-sporting-event type that we usually have. What I want you to do is come up with the question that Jody Jackson asked to get that reaction from Tony Lovullo and what his response was. Go!

*The correct answer was play the Reds and Marlins
