We had a big-time streak breaker yesterday with Albert Pujols’ hitless game against the Mets. A hefty 19 percent of BTS users went with Prince Albert, only to find themselves back at square one following his not-so-regal 0-for-5 performance.
With so many fans forced to start from scratch over the weekend, we’re down to 178 fans tied for the top spot, at 15 games. That’s still a pretty hearty number, but we’re sure to see more seemingly safe picks come up empty in the coming days.
Congrats to those who’ve made it this far without getting nailed by the 0-for whammy.
Yesterday’s Top 5 most selected players
1. Albert Pujols (STL): 19.0%, 0-for-5
