Beat the Streak Report: Monday, August 2
Robinson Cano and Ichiro Suzuki tagteamed for an 0-fer of doom for
Streakers nationwide on Sunday, obliterating the streaks of 12.3 percent
of all users in their destructive paths.
But the fun don’t stop there.
In a strange turn of events, Andre Ethier, Joe Mauer, Martin Prado and
Josh Hamilton were each vacant from their squads’ respective lineups,
pressing the pause button on a combined 15.7 percent of all Streakers.
Did they all join Amare Stoudemire in the Dead Sea? Because that’s a lot of floating around.
Will our Streakers be able to bounce back in a short 10-game-slate
Monday? Or will they toil in the misery of slumpville along with Don
Draper and Albert Haynesworth?
All that and more in Monday’s Picks:
