Beat the Streak Report: Weekend, July 2-5
A rough day in Streakland yesterday, as Josh Hamilton’s 23-game run
came to a close and he took 12.9 percent of BTSers with him. Tack in a
couple 0-fers from Ryan Braun and Adrian Gonzalez, and more than 20
percent of all streakers are now beginning their holiday weekend at 0.
Speaking of holiday weekends …it’s, um, a holiday weekend! So make sure to plan ahead and select your guys through Monday.
The last you want is to see your 24-gamer slip through the
cracks because you were too distracted grilling and keeping your Uncle
Sam beard out of the flaming charcoal.
On to the weekend’s picks …
