Atlanta catcher Brian McCann may not want to encounter the people behind the screen names of j.harv8, Braves10 and crowleybs in a dark alleyway. That trio represented the Top 3 BTS contestants entering yesterday’s action, and all finished the day back at square one following McCann’s 0-for-5 showing vs. the Phillies.
And so, BTS play continues with no streaks of at least 30 games for the first time in a while. dizzygst, who picked Ian Kinsler (1-for-5), and misharandolph, who went with Ichiro Suzuki (2-for-4), take over the top spot together with their 28-game streaks. tasty_ellis_stu extended his run to a tasty 27 games with the selection of Derek Jeter (1-for-5), and eight more moved into a tie for fourth place at 25 games.
Yesterday’s Top 5 most selected players
1. Ichiro Suzuki (SEA): 9.3%, 2-for-4
2. Albert Pujols (STL): 8.9%, 2-for-3
3. Brian McCann (ATL): 8.2%, 0-for-5
