Beat the Streak Report: May 10
It was a nightmare on Elm Street this weekend atop our BTS leaderboard, as our two top streakers, “olifante” and “bowl218” saw their streaks snap Friday night thanks to Hanley Ramirez’s hitless performance.
Was Hanley my top pick for Friday? Yes, yes, he was.
Sorry kids, you get what you pay for.
Our lone ranger atop the leaderboard now is “cruj”, who is currently rocking a 33-game streak thanks to Jayson Werth’s 1-for-3 day at the yard yesterday.
With “cruj” at 33 games, he is officially 57.9 percent on his way to buying one of the over-sized gigantic walking pianos like from the movie “Big”.
Just because he can.
Time for Monday’s picks.
Oh, hello there …
? Stephen Drew: .410 AVG (16-for-39) lifetime vs. Dodgers starter Chad Billingsley
? Joey Votto: .800 AVG (4-for-5) lifetime vs. Pirates starter Ross Ohlendorf
? Brian McCann: .364 AVG (4-for-11) lifetime vs. Brewers starter Doug Davis
? Russell Martin: .500 AVG (4-for-8) lifetime vs. D-backs starter Rodrigo Lopez
Feeling kinda spicy?
? Ronny Paulino: .538 AVG (7-for-13) lifetime vs. Cubs starter Ted Lilly. Backup catcher much?
You’ll thank me later …
? Hanley Ramirez: .100 AVG (1-for-10) lifetime vs. Cubs starter Ted Lilly
? Aaron Hill: .083 AVG (1-for-12) lifetime vs. Red Sox starter John Lackey
? Cristian Guzman: .000 AVG (0-for-13) lifetime vs. Mets starter John Maine
A full nine games behind “cruj” is “jonnygoska”, who currently sits with a 24-game streak. Good luck with that.
