Beat the Streak Report: Tuesday, August 31
The pause button was pressed on “jpells10″‘s 30-game streak, as his selection, Troy Tulowitzki, was a late scratch.
Yes, Tulo was one of my Picks of the Day. Glad I could help.
Anyway, the BTS countdown is now officially at 34, meaning all those
with 23-game streaks or better are still alive in this crazy little game
Time for Tuesday’s picks
