Beat the Streak Report: Thursday, August 26
And down goes “warriorclub”.
Yesterday’s leader saw his streak walk Albert Pujols’ bridge to nowhere,
after the St. Louis slugger went 0-for-4 in a loss to the Pirates.
By my count, there are only 39 more streak days left on the calendar,
and if I have my Algebra I skills tidy, that means that all those with
an 18-game streak or better are still chugging along on that $3,000,000
Beat the Streak choo-choo train.
My most favorite train of them all.
Time for Thursday’s picks

Don’t let me down.
