The penultimate week of the first half!

Welcome back! Last week, in honor of Phoenix Fan Fusion, I asked you to tell me what each Diamondback player would cosplay as. And lest you think this is out of the realm of possibility, one of the police officers providing security told me that David Eckstein was in attendance this year. Wasn’t able to find him though. There were a lot of storm troopers.

Anyway, in third place, with two recs each, we have Jack Sommers, Kilnborn, and LeftFieldCorNWer!

Christian Walker as “Buffalo Bill” from the Silence of the Lambs. “IT PUTS THE BASEBALL IN THE STRIKEZONE OR ELSE IT GETS THE HOSE AGAIN!” -Kilnborn
I was thinking Road Runner for Corbin Carrol (meep meep) - LeftFieldCorNWer

All very outside the box! I like it!

In second place, we have FootstepsFalco16 with three recs!

Lourdes Gurriel should dress his hair up as Spongebob’s pineapple under the sea house. He can put a little SpongeBob and Gary figurine in it and then wear shoulder pads that extend to have Squidward’s house and Patrick’s rock also beside it.

I’m not kidding at all when I say someone who did that cosplay wouldn’t be able to walk more than a couple feet before someone asks them for another picture

And finally, in first place, we have NikT77 with the obvious choice and five recs

Gotta be Corbin Carroll as The Flash

I say it’s the obvious choice, but give him another month and he might be Superman...

It’s not over yet, but it sure is looking like a three man race between kilnborn, Jack, and Spencer, but with two prompts left Mak and Nik aren’t out of it by any stretch of the imagination.

A quick housekeeping note, though. At the start of the season, I copied and pasted the rules from last year, including how many weeks there were in the season. Last year, the season broke down into two halves of 12. This year, since we didn’t lose a couple weeks due to lock out, each half will actually be 13 weeks. Just FYI

This week, we’re going to make fun of the A’s a bit, because, honestly, they deserve it. They’ve been part of an ongoing Special Session of the Nevada state legislature and to say it isn’t going well for them is something of an understatement. So with Oakland out and Las Vegas seemingly getting close to taking itself out of the running, where should the A’s play moving forward? Go!
