Yesterday’s results

BTS leader soxwhite24 stretched his streak to 34-games over the weekend, making him the first leader in four weeks to hold onto the top spot through a weekend. Last night, soxwhite24 capitalized on Matt Holliday’s two-homer barrage against Ricky Nolasco and the Marlins.

leader was the sole member of Friday’s Top 5 to last through the
weekend. Newcomers bassman, mxedout and t-birds8 took advantage of the
turnover and fought their way into a three-way tie for second-place
with 27-game streaks. Fifth-place competitor 92gm, who stayed alive
last night thanks to Matt Stairs (2-for-3), rounds out the Top 5 with a
24-game streak.

Yesterday’s most-picked player, Alfonso Soriano, rewarded fans for their faith by going 3-for-5 with a solo homer against the Pirates. Albert Pujols, who was chosen by 4.8% of fans, was the only member of the Top 5 most-picked players who couldn’t deliver a hit. The All-Star first baseman was held hitless in four trips to the dish against Brett Myers and the Philadelphia ‘pen.

Yesterday’s Top 5 most selected players

1. Alfonso Soriano (CHC): 5.6%, 3-for-5
2. Albert Pujols (STL): 4.8%, 0-for-3
3. Ichiro Suzuki (SEA): 4.7%, 1-for-4
4. Matt Holliday (COL): 3.6%, 1-for-4
4. Dustin Pedroia (BOS): 3.6%, 1-for-4

Justin Morneau went 0 for 3 Saturday not 1 for 3 as you have posted on this blog. I wouldn’t have gone down to 0 if he had 1 hit on Saturday.

Justin Morneau 0 for 3 on Saturday.

I can’t log in to make my pick. Anyone else having problems?

i am also having the same problem when i go to pick a player it does show a list of players what can i do to rectify the problem so i can make my picks?

Another error in your scorekeeping system:

Ichiro Suzuki went 2-3 on Monday, Aug. 4 — NOT 0-0 as you have posted.

Please correct my score in the standings to reflect Suzuki’s hits, as I picked him as my hitter for the day.

It wasn’t an error.. The game was played on the west coast which means it finished late which means you just have to have a little more patience.
They always show batters as 0-0 until after the game is over and the stats come in.
