Beat the Streak Report: Monday, August 30
A new week and a new leader tops the Beat the Streak leaderboard.
Hanley Ramirez’s first-inning tater translated into a 30-game streak for “jpells10”, our new ruler of the universe.
Ramirez was the day’s most popular pick, extending the streak of 9.7 percent of BTSLand in a fruitful day at the park.
The BTS countdown is now officially at 35, meaning all those with
22-game streaks or better are still alive in this crazy little game
