Beat the Streak Report: Wednesday, May 25

Yesterday was a great success in Streakland, as popularity kings Jose Reyes, Vladimir Guerrero and Buster Posey combined to push more than a quarter of all selectors one day closer to the land of milk and Honey Nut Cheerios.

Former leader brentellerbrock was not among the chosen few, however, as Ryan Braun lasted just two hitless at-bats before losing his helmet and his head against the Nationals.

If Mr. Ellerbrock avoided a hissy fit and an ejection of his own upon realizing that Braun’s tasty matchup against Livan “On a Prayer” Hernandez ended prematurely, he’s a cooler man than  we are.

So close to the halfway point, and yet so far. We recommend getting right back on that horse with a little help from …

GL to all


My first A-Rod pick of the year, to get to 10. I’ve now picked 35 different players in 56 days!

And now, I’m officially worried….

Oh, thank goodness. Ten streak!

There you go. A-rod leads off 7 with single.

The good news is that Miguel Cabrera has a hit! The bad news is that the game is now in a delay!

Same boat as last night woth Josh.

Game postponed! 😦 😦 😦 😦 😦

Postponed. Had miggy for 8. I’ve been stuck on 7 for 3+ days now – this is so infuriating!

SUSPENDED not postponed makes a diff for bts. Miggy has his hit, so whenever ge gets played you get credit for it.

No, the game was rained out.

If you look at the homepage, you see “postponed – rain.”
