    Looks like Ichiro and Pedroia are the two hot picks for today. Of those with streaks 20 or more…..
    Ichiro was taken by 18 players and Pedroia by 16..
    108 can still make the elusive 57 mark
    141 can still make it to 56
    709 can still make it to 49
    TWO people with streaks over 20 FORGOT to pick

    Just noticed the pick of the day is carlos Beltran and his average against Roy Oswalt.
    ONE SMALL PROBLEM. Oswalt picthed last night and lost to the mets and Santana.

    well well, who would have thought that the two most popular picks on Saturday would both go hitless and wipe out about 34 people from having any chance.
    so now its down to about 70 people left who can make 57
