Beat the Streak Report: Weekend, August 27-29
Leader “sunhudson” asked for immediate Beat the Streak satiation
yesterday and his/her impatience was rewarded, as Jayson Werth singled
in the Phillies’ early afternoon loss to the Astros.
Werth’s base knock extended “sunhudson”‘s streak to a stellar 33-game
mark heading into the weekend. You know the deal, “sunhudson”, survive
the weekend and you’ll be featured in Monday’s BTS Report. And if that’s
not motivation, I don’t know what is.
Enough with the **** chat, let’s get to the weekend’s picks.
