Well, I guess two weeks ago, I asked you to make the home run derby more interesting. Lots of good responses, but the clear winner was... MrMrrbi!

After each home run, the hitter must circle the bases and chug a beer.

Not trailing too far behind, with a fair number of rec’s herself... Hotclaws!

And in third place, with another respectable rec total, smartplays!

Have to compete in it. Large cash prizes with a pool of maybe $5 million split up based on results, with the winner getting half. That should be good enough to get past players resisting being in it.

Also, congrats AzRattler.

The Diamondbacks are entering the homestretch of the season. As of writing, they’re tied for first, and neither they nor the Dodgers seem to be relinquishing their grasp on the division easily. Sounds an awful lot like a TV series setting up for sweeps week! Your challenge is to write a teaser of sorts, advertising the plot twists we can expect from the rest of this season. Go!
