Last week’s results

We asked you for the pitchers with most wins for the Diamondbacks - which, in this case, was everyone with more than 10 victories for the team. 113 people took up the challenge, and it was a bit tougher than the position players, with the average score coming in just over the half-way mark, at 52%. You will not be at all surprised to learn that Randy Johnson was remembered by all 113 people: his picture atop the article might have been helpful in that regard! But almost as well remembered were Brandon Webb and Curt Schilling: if you were the one person who missed either, I’d like to hear your explanation! At the other end, Brandon Medders’s 11 wins were all but forgotten, well below Tony Pena and Juan Cruz.

Here are the full results, along with their number of wins. I am, admittedly, confused by the two people who apparently got David Hernandez, but not Livan Hernandez, considering this was a last-name only thing!

This week’s quiz

It’s back to the position player side of things we go, as we look at the forty most active men on the basepaths. There are a few obvious names that come to mind, but I do think this one will be a little tougher than “games played”. Down at the bottom end are a few cases of players who were only here for a brief time, but were definitely threats to swipe a bag or two. Those may well be problematic. Anyway, see how you do below, or here’s the link.
