What in the world are the Diamondbacks doing?!

Last week, I asked you to please, for the love of God, tell me what the Diamondbacks organizational philosophy was at the trade deadline. While there were many great answers, I’ll be honest, I still don’t know what it was. Anyway, in first place, where I’m pretty sure they don’t even check his ID anymore, Jack Sommers!

We may not have the best players, but we’re keeping them! (5 recs)

In second, we have a tie between NikT77 and FatElvis04!

FatElvis04: What is this organizational philosophy you speak of? 3 recs
NikT77: We’re not tanking. We’re competing in a sneaky sorta way. (3 recs)

And rounding out the top three this week, we find kilnborn!

Any sufficiently advanced incompetence is indistinguishable from malice (2 recs)

Remind me next time to add a character limit in addition to the word limit lol Let’s see how this effects the standings this week, shall we?

Standings

Player Recs
Player Recs
kilnborn 10
NikT77 10
Jack Sommers 8
FatElvis04 5
Diamondhacks 4

Despite Kilnborn reaching the podium, NikT77 sneaks up and ties them for first place in our standings this week. Jack Sommers still brining his A-Game, though, and is only two recs behind, despite already having secured his spot in the Finale. Always fun to see a finalist keep competing.

I have very little inspiration from the world of baseball this week, so instead let’s go into the wider world of the Olympics. You have the power to make one event an Olympic sport. Which do you choose, and why? Go!
