Yesterday’s results

And then there were three. That’s the number of fans who remained tied for first place, at 21 games, following Sunday’s action. The three front-runners barely stayed alive, as their selected players — Hanley Ramirez and Kevin Youkilis — each finished the day with one hit. Of course, that’s all it takes to stay alive, and many a lengthy streak throughout the nine-year history of BTS has been sustained by a lone hit.

Yesterday’s Top 5 most selected players

1. Kevin Youkilis (BOS): 8.2%, 1-for-3
2. Magglio Ordonez (DET): 5.9%, 0-for-4
3. Miguel Cabrera (DET): 4.3%, 1-for-3
4. Evan Longoria (TB): 4.0%, 0-for-3
5. Hanley Ramirez (FLA): 3.4%, 1-for-4



    12 players have a streak of 20

    Brian roberts: 5
    Alfonso Soriano: 2
    Matt Kemp: 2
    Albert Pujols: 1
    Dustin Pedroia: 1
    Victor Martinez: 1


    I chose Orlando Hudson on 04-27-09 against the Giants & he went 1-4. The results on the BTS website states that he didn’t play! This is wrong! Does anyone know how I can get this corrected?
