Beat the Streak Report: Wednesday, September 8
Well, isn’t “bretzky26” making things interesting?
Our fearless leader upped his/her streak to a robust 37 games after successfully choosing Mark Teixeira for Tuesday’s slate.
“bretzky26” is now just a 20-game streak away from taking home the big bucks.
Let’s see how this one all shakes out.

Unfortunately, “pops50” saw his/her streak go down in flames after Hanley Ramirer went hitless. We’ll miss you, pops.
That means that “astoclubgoer” is in second place in the standings with a 31-gamer.
On that note, he is also the only streaker outside of “bretzky26” who
still has enough time on the calendar to put together a 57-game streak.
