Yesterday’s results

It was a tough day for the 19.5 percent of the BTS contestants who picked Ichiro Suzuki, a group that included each of the Top 3 placeholders. Ichiro went 0-for-4 to end his 12-game hitting streak, simultaneously ending the streaks of dizzygst (28 games), misharandolph (28) and tasty_ellis_stu (27).

Fortunately, there were plenty of remaining contestants who went with other players. Albert Pujols (2-for-2), Derek Jeter (1-for-3) and Hanley Ramirez (2-for-3) were the respective picks of greg4263, redleg ump and spark5411, who took over first place at 26 games. grebecks also tabbed Hanley to take over a share of second at 24 games, and wyn11 kept pace by going with Mark Teixeira (2-for-4).
