Last week’s results

We asked you to name the top 40 Diamondbacks in terms of games played. Some interesting discussion as to whether Andrew Chafin should have been on the list ensued. Per GuruB:

Games where a pitcher pitches in a DH game are not included in the Batting Games played stat.
Chafin 337 games pitched as a DBack, only listed with 305 Game played.
Ziegler 377 games pitched as a DBack, listed with 359

So, now you know.

Still, even with this uncertainty, it was probably our easiest quiz to date - which may explain why it got most plays of any Sporcle in almost a year, at 125! The average score was a robust 68%, so well done to everybody - but especially the eight of you who scored a cool 40/40.. We did have one man listed on 100% of attempts, though it probably isn’t who you’d think. Not Luis Gonzalez or Paul Goldschmidt, though both of those were over 95%. No, the most-remembered D-back in franchise history is none other than Chris Young. Maybe the initials helped? At the other end, Greg Colbrunn was the only one remembered by fewer than 40% of participants, with Augie Ojeda and Kelly Stinnett also among the most-forgotten.

This week’s quiz

Onto the mound we go, with the forty pitchers to have picked up most wins in team history, which is everyone who has more than ten W’s to their credit. Though in line with the precedent set by Top Gear, there are actually 41. due to three being tied on 11 wins. I’ve left the initials in, even though it could be said it made things too easy. I think pitchers might be tougher as there seem to be quite a few from the earlier days of the franchise. Curious to see how this goes, but if you get more than twenty, I think you’re doing alright.
