Yesterday’s results

Many players use the All-Star break as a rejuvenation period, and it seems the same may have held true in the BTS world.

Leader rook3256 has his streak up to 34 games, showing he’s no rookie when it comes to making picks. Yesterday, he went with Seattle hit machine Ichiro Suzuki (3-for-4).

kd21 remained close behind, at 33 games, following Miguel Cabrera’s 2-for-4 effort in the Bronx. alexanderreynoso, btkroos and mhhumm830 all extended their runs to 30 games to round out the Top 5.

Yesterday’s Top 5 most selected players

1. Ichiro Suzuki (SEA): 14.2%, 3-for-4
2. Albert Pujols (STL): 11.5%, 1-for-4
3. Shane Victorino (PHI): 5.1%, 1-for-3

I have not seen the results of the all star game contests, except for the winners. Could you please tell me how to get them, or at least send me a copy of the rules, so I can figure out how close we came. Thanks.
