Yesterday’s results
The BTS leaderboard underwent big changes yesterday, as the top two competitors were both eliminated from action. Hitless performances from Minnesota’s Joe Mauer and Justin Morneau ended cubdane’s streak at 35 games and halted huhino’s streak at 33.

vladdy_bts_May.jpgThe shakeup left three new BTS leaders — jnay017, rustyolson56 and trizzy7 — running the show at 33 games after Vladimir Guerrero went 1-for-4 and Chipper Jones singled in his only at-bat. These three users are the last with a shot at shattering Joe DiMaggio’s 56-game streak.

Guerrero — far and away the most popular pick, at 15.2 percent — also pushed jared_bullock22 and miller_twm27 to 32 games, tied for fourth place with jona831, who benefited from a 1-for-4 showing from Ryan Braun.

Yesterday’s Top 5 most selected players:
1. Vladimir Guerrero (LAA): 15.2%, 1-for-4
