This game is great – it would be a notch tougher if it was a one player a streak contest. For example, you can only use a player once in your current streak- What’d yuall think of that?

Until somebody wins with the way it is I don’t think it needs to be made any harder.

i agree it’s hard enough this way but, i agree with spindoc it might be interesting

Does anyone play the HR streak as well? It doesn’t seem to work right, I picked Pujols for yesterday and he hit 2 HR, shows my streak at 0 though. Also many people on the leaderboard picked players that did not homer, but it shows them with active streaks. This is very frustrating, is the system messed up for the HR streak?

the survivor is the same way, its showing that people who picked Texas on Saturday still have current win streaks going

Come on mlb.com survivor and HR Streak are both messed up. Please fix these both. It’s extremely frustrating. You have to know that everyone is upset. (PS i went with Aramis Ramirez for HR yesterday, which was right, but didn’t get credit for it and I picked the Braves and got a loss even though they won!) Fix this please!!!!!!!!!!!

The HR streak and MLB.com Survivor standings are both lagging by 1 or more days. However, your own personal stats are correct.

If you look on the “Player Select” screen, the current streak, longest streak, and curent leader stats are all incorrect, but if you click on “Results,” you will notice that that information is correct.

So if you were to win, you would still win. However, I agree that it is quite annoying to have a comprehensive standings system available and then have it be completely useless due to incorrect information.
