What did poor Baxter every do to you people?

Last week, the team was mired in the second worst losing streak in franchise history, and while they did break it, they honestly haven’t really played any better. I asked you, though, how to break the streak, not turn around the fortunes of the whole team, and it clearly worked! In first place, we find our Dear Leader with a very popular idea...

“A sacrifice must be made!” followed by an embedded tweet from the official D. Baxter twitter account that includes a picture showing him in a position reminiscent of someone being crucified. 5 recs

Honest, I wonder if Baxter should be relegated to the dust bin of banned PYW’s entries along with Nacho Slides, because I swear all anyone has to do is threaten his health or wellbeing and they’re the automatic winner. But at the same time... it’s still funny! Ah well.

In second place, we find Preston Salisbury!

Every batter that gets a hit with RISP gets to throw a rotten tomato at their choice of Kendrick or Rob Manfred. Probably this would help boost attendance as well. 3 recs

I know I’d make more of an effort to go to the games at that point. Heck, put it on PPV and get people all around the country watching...

Rounding out our podium this week is Justin27!

What needs to happen? 2002 Randy Johnson on the hill, with 2001 Gonzo batting 3rd and 2013 Goldy cleanup. Fernando Rodney is the closer though, It cant be too lights out… 2 recs

2004 RJ might be more realistic sadly...

And now for the updated standings!

Two of our winners this week were first time visitors to the podium this week, so congratulations to them! Justin uses his third place finish solidify his grasp on third place over all, breaking his tie with NikT77. No change at the top, however, since for the first time this season, I believe, neither Jack nor Diamondhacks broke into our top three.

As you probably heard, Torey Lovullo finally snapped in the dugout. There is of course video of it, courtesy of Bally Sports AZ, but there isn’t any audio. What did Torey tell the team between innings? Go!
