Yesterday’s results

An outstanding 39-game hit streak by eduneversaydie came to a close yesterday when Dustin Pedroia went 0-for-3 against Toronto. Though eduneversaydie fell short of the 40-game mark, his run tied competitor 3059s36 for the season’s second-highest mark. The hitless performance also ended Pedroia’s personal streak at nine.

Two other Top 5 competitors were also eliminated from play, including second-place bruinscup72 and fifth-place kbarnett10, both of whom chose Ichiro Suzuki (0-for-4).

    wow only 50 people left to make a run at 57
    and only 72 can make a run at 56
    502 can still tie for the season high
    how crazy is this????

    Even though there are only 35 days left in the regular season, you reall should count 37 to be safe, because there is always the chance that 3 teams tie for a playoff spot and those games still count for picks as well.

    For reference, see last year’s tiebreaker between the Rockies and Padres.

    In 2006, if there was a tie, that tiebreaking day would have given the 2nd place BTS competitor a chance to tie for the lead, and a 3-way tie would have allowed him to win the contest.

    But the Dodgers scored 7 runs in the bottom of the 9th inning to win the NL West.
