Yesterday’s results

Thanks to a couple of rainouts that shrunk an already light slate of games, only 31 fans were able to extend their streaks to a BTS-best 15 games. Of course, those who picked hit machines Derek Jeter and Chase Utley from the postponed games simply held steady with their current streaks, so they’ll get another chance to move forward if Mother Nature cooperates with the schedule today.

Yesterday’s Top 5 most selected players

1. Kevin Youkilis (BOS): 8.6%, 1-for-2
2. Miguel Tejada (HOU): 8.4%, 0-for-3
3. Derek Jeter (NYY): 6.6%, 0-for-0
4. Chase Utley (PHI): 6.0%, 0-for-0
5. Robinson Cano (NYY): 5.9%, 0-for-0

Ollie and then our bullpen is gonna shut down Pujols

Well so much for that, Ollie is imploding

If only I had a nickel for every time I read that one statement…
