Pit Your Wits 2020: Week Three

New, comments

Well, your suggestions for new COVID procedures must have worked, cause the season’s still going!

Last week, the season seemed to be circling the drain with positive COVID tests popping up everywhere, and many fans wondering if we were approaching the number of games cancelled that would make the season untenable. Well, a week later we’re still cancelling games, changing the very definition of games, and still getting more positive tests, so we roll on. Obviously. It honestly makes the suggestions that you all gave in last week’s episode seem less ridiculous, TBH. Anyway, last week I did ask you to come up with your best new COVID prevention procedure, and you delivered! The big winner this week was Rockkstarr with seven recs!

How to greet someone properly during the pandemic. You don’t shake hands. LLAP instead

Right behind with six recs, Jack Sommers!

(in the sarcasm font) Eliminate the testing system, that will clearly end this pandemic.

Rounding out our podium this week with 3 recs is NikT77, with a simple, yet elegant suggestion

Both Nik and Rockstarr are new additions to the leaderboard, so a big round of applause for them. Jack takes his second place finish and uses it to extend his lead over second place.

This week, we’ll bring the focus of our withering wits towards the Diamondbacks for the first time this season. It hasn’t really been going well for the home team, and no one represents that better than Jake Lamb and his .048 batting average. It’s so bad, he was actually trending on Twitter in the state of Arizona following Friday night’s game, and considering the top two other trends were Doug (Ducey) and Sheriff Joe, you can safely assume it wasn’t people saying how glad they were he was on the team. So I ask you, why is Jake Lamb still on the team? Go!
