Beat the Streak Report: Tuesday, September 7
It looks like someone wants to play ball, after all.
BTS leader “bretzky36” survived the long weekend and now sports a 36-game after Ryan Zimmerman’s fruitful Monday at the yard.
With less than a month left in the season, “bretzky36″‘s 36-gamer should
add some much-needed BTS energy after we admittedly fell into a rut
once Geoff Croke’s 43-gamer hit the hay.
So splash some water in your eyes, put on a crisp new shirt and let’s get this party started. “bretzky36”, we’re here for you.
Time for Tuesday’s picks
Oh, hello there …

“pops50” is also making things interesting, as our second-place streaker
is right on “bretzky36″‘s heels with a 33-gamer of his own after
successfully picking Ichiro for Monday.
Yes we can!
