Yesterday’s results

BTS competitors are quickly learning that, contrary to popular belief, weekends are not meant for sitting back and relaxing. 

chipper2BTS.jpgFor the second straight weekend, four of Friday’s Top 5 competitors fell off the leaderboard before Monday, with second-place contestant garykittilsen proving to be the lone survivor. garykittilsen entered Sunday tied for first place but lost his share of the lead when his pick, Placido Polanco, did not play in Detroit’s win over Baltimore. New leader natale94 seized the opportunity by taking sole possession of first after Chipper Jones hit an RBI double in the fourth inning of Atlanta’s loss to the Nationals.

Fans on Sunday went crazy for Grady Sizemore, who entered the day’s action with a .488 lifetime average (21-for-43) against Seattle righty Carlos Silva. Sizemore couldn’t manage a hit in two trips to the dish against Silva, but he collected a pair of hits against the Mariners bullpen to validate his selection as the day’s most-picked player.

Yesterday’s Top 5 most selected players

1. Grady Sizemore (CLE): 7.2%, 2-for-4
2. Chase Utley (PHI): 6.6%, 1-for-3
3. Chipper Jones (ATL): 5.8%, 1-for-3
4. Albert Pujols (STL): 5.3%, 0-for-0
5. Aramis Ramirez (CHC): 4.2%, 0-for-5

damn mothing really sticks outs for any kind of obvious pick. i thought about young but hes 0-for8 the last two games and hes been known to have 0-for-20 streaks before he starts to hit again.

Jose Reyes only converts on steals about 1/3 of the time, he doesn’t even have 50 RBIs, already has 13 errors, and has
struck out a league high 51 times.

Jose Reyes only has a .300 avg., only 71 runs, and only 124 hits.

The Mets need Carlos Ruiz to have any chance in winning the division. Ruiz has only 4 errors, only 1 caught stealing, and only 29 SO.

anyone else have trouble creating a group in beat the streak? it says something like “credentials are not met”.

any help?

I took Dejesus today:
*hits Detroit well
*Miner’s pitching
*it’s 120 in K.C.
*Royals are scoring a lot lately

i went with berkman

jweisinger which young are you talking about? I chose delmon young and he has been hitting well lately.

newyorkmetsfan39. could you send me an invite to join that group?

if you send me an invite please send it to steffenschenkenberger137@gmail.com

When I try and send you an invite it says, “Application is not authorized to make this call”

did you send it to the gmail account?

try sending it to smoron015@aol.com

Man, Zach Miner pitching a 3 hitter to the Royals. 16-0 with Cabrera up bases loaded. Top 8th

makes me proud to be a tigers fan. finally getting back in the division races and getting great results from surprising pitchers like gallaraga, bonine miner and dolsi.

was talking about Michael young, texas, and looking at the box score he was hitless again tonight.
Kinsler of texas, i dont think he has a hit since before the all star break.

looks like im going back to zero,. berkman is 0-for-3 with 2 strikeouts

Unless the Pirates push this game into extra innings Berkman’s gonna disappoint a lot of people tonite

And then they put Dolsi in. Opps

if the invite isnt working, the name of the group is
We Run This see if you can go look up the group and join that way

wow, Pitt ties the game Berkman could get up again

the league is private i need the password

IT LOOKS LIKE DEEP PLUNGING OF THE BOARD GOING ON NOW.

ITS ALL LUCK WITH THIS GAME. SOMETIMES IT SEEMS SO EASY BUT ITS THAT ONE DAY THAT KILLS EVERYONE.

ONLY ABOUT 2 WEEKS LEFT BEFORE IT BECOMES NUMERICALLY NOT POSSIBLE TO WIN THIS GAME IF ONES STARTS OFF AT ZERO STREAK.

MAN, THE COMPANY THAT INSURED THE MIL BUCKS MUST BE TOASTING A COLD BEER TONIGHT.

I remember talking to someone on here about it maybe getting tuff coming back from the all-star break and it sure has. I feel like I’m a real MLB hitter and I’m in a slump tryin to get back on course and put a streak together.

Man, I can’t even remember what I set the password as. I can’t find where to retrieve it or make my group public if I wanted to.

Oh yeah I’m pretty sure it was “bts08″

Man, the leader is going to be in the twenties if things keep going like they are.

What are u guys doing up at 4:24AM?

ey guys do u know if you select a guy and he dosent play do you lose your streak or continue it???

They post eastern time on here. I’m on the west coast so it was about 1:30am.
