    hope your streak continues tonight


    Thank you JM for the beautiful HR. Surprised to see lemmings not hitting you as much today. Hoping for Holliday to take a holiday. LOL!

    Could be in interesting night for Cardinal hitters.
    Charlie Haeger, LAD pitcher, is a knuckleballer.

    Originally i had Chipper but ten minutes before the deadline i went and changed to Derek Jeter. im at 15 now

    Mauer had a good night in Texas. including a HR in the first inning.


    Wow. What a crappy pick for hammanm but what a luck he has. That was not even a hit. It was Holliday barely getting a bat on the heater from Broxton.

    Looking for another crappy pick from him tomorrow!

  6. backrubs

    well162 started the day above 20, but the biggest losers today are those who had Chipper jones (16) Robinson cano (13) ryan braun (4)
    all total 37 lost streaks today while 9 people didnt advance cuz the player didnt play


    I was watching the Holliday at bat. He fouled the pitch before off his foot and was limping. I don’t see how he beat out the weak grounder he hit. I was sure the streak was dead. I will say that it was lucky but that is not a bad thing. You can’t win this thing without a lot of luck. My streak of 15 ended on Monday with Damon so I’m out.
