Even with slightly less than half of MLB’s teams in action last night, BTS users showed a deft touch when it came to making their picks.
Fourteen of the 15 Top players selected whacked at least one hit, with only Stephen Drew (0-for-5) coming up short.
Clearly, BTS participants are already in midseason form. Now, it’s just a matter of sustaining that form through the coming weeks. For the huge pack tied atop the leaderboard, it’s three down and 54 to go!
