Yesterday’s results

There’s been upheaval at the top of the BTS standings following an exciting weekend of action. First, the streak of last week’s leader, bj_hotfox_22, was snapped on Friday night at 28 games. That left room for two contestants, eagles08 and jenner43wilson, to take over first place.

Both stayed in the top spot long enough to set a BTS season-high mark of 29 games, but those streaks came to a sudden end yesterday. For eagles08, Torii Hunter’s defensive wizardry wasn’t enough to make up for a 0-for-3 effort at the plate, and jenner43wilson simply caught the previously hot-hitting Miguel Cabrera on an off day.

As a result, we enter the work week with tyrules667 holding down first place with a 26-game streak. jpburnett232 is in second place at 25 games, and two more are tied for third at 24 games.

Yesterday’s Top 5 most selected players

1. Ryan Theriot (CHC): 5.9%, 0-for-2
2. Miguel Cabrera (DET): 5.0%, 0-for-3
3. Chipper Jones (ATL): 4.1%, 0-for-3
4. Ichiro Suzuki (SEA): 4.0%, 1-for-5
5. Hanley Ramirez (FLA): 4.0%, 2-for-4

How weird it is that Zimmerman has a greater streak than the current leader? I bet that if Zimmmerman was on a better team, the people would pick him all the time.
