Yesterday’s results

It was business as usual yesterday for BTS leader waw_3card, who extended his Major League-leading streak to 31 games thanks to — who else? — Ichiro Suzuki, who singled in three at-bats to extend his streak to 27 games.

Also thanks to Ichiro, ace21dlr remains one game behind waw_3card with a 29-game streak.

All in all, 21 of the Top 25 users advanced by picking Ichiro, but they’ll all have to find someone else to keep their dreams of attaining the $1 million-plus top prize alive, as the Mariners are off today — stay tuned!

Yesterday’s Top 5 most selected players

1. Ichiro Suzuki (SEA): 16.4%, 1-for-3
2. Kevin Youkilis (BOS): 7.0%, 2-for-3
3. Orlando Hudson ( LAD): 4.6%, 0-for-0
4. Derek Jeter (NYY): 3.6%, 0-for-4
5. Dustin Pedroia (BOS): 3.3%, 2-for-5

so im looking at the leaders page and i see that if everyone gets the right pick today, 14 people could be at 30 or more tomorrow. Ive been playing this since 04 and have never seen that many people at or above 30 EVER.
The top two have taken the same player, Tejada,
Last time the top two did this, last weekend, the player did NOT get a hit..

170 people have streaks of 20 or more though i did notice while doing a quick look through to see where the 20 ended, a few people FORGOT to make picks today

jason Kubel continues to kill Carmona, two HRs today.
Youkilis 0-for-1 and replaced in the Boston game.
Ten people over 20 lose streaks

The top two have taken the same player, Tejada,
Last time the top two did this, last weekend, the player did NOT get a hit…..Thanks for the jinx…

I thought you did not lose your streak if the player you selected did not play. Orlando Hudson did not play but I lost my streak.

ROFL wasnt trying to jinx anyone, just thought it funny that the top two had the same player, just like last weekend.

Lambo, as for your streak if hudson did not record an official at bat, you do NOT lose your streak
