Yesterday’s results

When in doubt, go with Ichiro; that seemed to be the philosophy of much of the BTS community yesterday.

It’s hard to argue with that approach, especially since the Seattle hit machine came through for his fans again. His 1-for-5 performance extended the streak of BTS leader greg4263 to 31 games, and bumped co-second-place holder grebecks up to 28 games. Altogether, five of the Top 7 fans and 22.6 percent of BTS contestants went with Ichiro.

racin248 was one of the brave few who picked a different player, and his selection of Derrek Lee (2-for-4) helped him remain in a tie for second place. taylorjanney also took a different route by tabbing Kevin Youkilis, but wound up with a 0-for-4 effort to see his run snapped at 27 games.

Yesterday’s Top 5 most selected players

1. Ichiro Suzuki (SEA): 22.6%, 1-for-5
2. Kevin Youkilis (BOS): 5.3%, 0-for-4
3. Jacoby Ellsbury (BOS): 5.2%, 0-for-4
4. Dustin Pedroia (BOS): 4.0%, 0-for-0
5. Jason Bay (BOS): 3.7%, 1-for-3



    not only have the picks disappeared but you cant make any picks for tomorrow (or at least cant save them). Also the whole web site is funky–I had to type this comment twice.

    The bts site has been wiggy today. I log-in, no picks, even though I should have about five made. A couple hours later I log-in, and my picks are there. I go to make a change to today’s pick, and it all disappears.

    I’m getting fed up since I can’t even get past 13 at all. I think this game is rigged in some way but I don’t know. Been playing since the beginning and can’t get to 20 at all. I don’t know what the hell to do.

    Oh yeah the game is rigged! The players call each other right before the game and decide who will get a hit or not. Just because you’re a lousy BTS player doesnt make it a conspiracy Vinny! Give me a break!
