Beat the Streak Report: Weekend, June 17-19

Our prediction yesterday that only one of the two co-leaders would emerge from Thursday’s action unscathed proved … woefully incorrect. Score one against the prescience of the BTS Report, but — more importantly — also score one for jdc5850 and another for sebringt.

Got your imaginary scorecards updated? Good. A look at the real scorecard shows the dynamic duo at 31 games apiece and tied for the 2011 lead with leahydpt and jsmnapoli.

If either jdc or sebring survives the weekend, we’ll be primed for the first mid-30’s run of the season. If both survive, then book the back room at Chuck E. Cheese’s because it is officially party time.

    Mother Nature may be in play today for a couple of games.
    Think any Yankee will try to imitate Babe Ruth’s 1932, Game 3, called shot? Or even possibly a Cub?

    • vinny1979

      There are 4 games that have a 50% chance of showers at gametime. Today may be a big reset rate if Reyes doesn’t get a hit and I hope he doesn’t.

      • LaVolpe

        Have to agree 110%. 1 in 4 of the Top2500 picked Reyes tonight. BTW. Reyes numbers vs. Pineiro are over 2 years old. 2009 was last time they faced each other. So, basically, stats out the window & hot Reyes vs. struggling Pineiro (47 hits in last 30 2/3 innings pitched). On paper, odds are overwhelming in Reyes’ favor, but we’ve seen better odds fail in this game, haven’t we?

    • gpearson17

      I usually don’t pick the most popular players. But I looked at the numbers today and wondered how stupid I would have to be NOT to pick Reyes. It was one of the most no-brainer picks of the year, if not THE most.

      • vinny1979

        Honestly Reyes is hitting too good against Pineiro that he is bound to fail. The numbers look good but they are too good and that is what I stay away from.

    • LaVolpe

      111 streakers at 19+ trying to get to or stay at 20+ today. 40 of them have Reyes, next highest is Kemp at 11.

    • champion_88

      Is that a trend you have noticed or you are just hoping it makes no difference?

      Also, welcome to The Bloggers!

  2. gpearson17

    I guess nobody expected Doug Davis to two-hit the Yankees through seven! Three Yankees in the top 15 picks today. At least Cano has one of the hits. A-Rod and Granderson still looking.

    • LaVolpe

      Hey, if my Cubbies can reset 1 or more Yankee pickers, that’s a bonus. A win is even better. Though they won’t be in the hunt this year, looks like they can play the role of a quality spoiler

    • champion_88

      I liked Brett Gardner of the Yankees against Davis, but I always shy away from picking him, because Girardi seems to love taking him out towards the end of the game.

      Of course, today he stayed in and got a 2-out, 9th inning hit off Marmol.

      You know there’s no way that would have happened if I had had him.

  3. LaVolpe

    I’d say a vast majority of BTS players do little to no research when making a pick. But if there’s one part of the season you want to do some research, it is interleague play. AL teams, in an NL park, tend to rest a DH or DH plays field and the normal fielder rests. What does this mean to you? Your pick may pinch hit for the pitcher. Some notable AL players sitting today, most lineup info not available yet: Butler, Guerrero, Konerko? (Dunn will play some games at 1B)

    • yanksgiantsdevils33

      Guerrero is not starting? There goes my 8 gamer, if only I knew it earlier. I lost on SFTC with the Yankees losing 1-3 to the Cubs. Half of the Fridays lock nearly 5 hours early because of Cubs 2:20 home start times if any of you notice.

      • LaVolpe

        It was posted on rotoworld well before games locked today. Your 8-gamer is only gone if he does PH & it’s an official AB (sac fly counts) and doesn’t get a hit. You can hope for the starter to go 9 innings 😉

      • yanksgiantsdevils33

        It’s touch to check rotoworld everyday but why rest when you are 4/5 against the opposing starter? I would think you would have rest days when your team is facing pitchers you bat .200 or less against not .800. Oh well this wouldn’t be the 1st time the Orioles mess me up as you well know by now. I’m hoping for a blowout but knowing the Orioles they could be down by 8 with 2 outs in the 9th inning and PH Vlad anyway. The Yankees has 3 players PH today (A Jones, J Posada, and C Dickerson) and all 3 struck-out. I removed Guerrero from the Foxsports game Baseball Hot Streak after getting this info.

      • champion_88

        I have noticed the alternating 220/700 lock times on Friday because of the Cubs too.

      • champion_88

        @Yanks: Eh, I mean it only takes a minute to check on RotoWorld.

        I have gotten in the habit of always checking after being burned by a Lance Berkman rest day on Sunday that ended my 8-game hit streak this year, since he pinch-hit and went 0 for 1.

        Usually Vlad only plays 2 of 3 games in an NL park series.

        Does he have sub .200 numbers against either the Saturday or Sunday starter?

        Also, Posada normally doesn’t start against lefties and Andruw Jones and Chris Dickerson are bench players normally.

  4. 00liber

    Keith. Can u get tomorrow and Sunday. (i’m on nights this weekend)
    I got today’s numbers and will post when I get to work.
    Welcome Heyya to the group.

      • LaVolpe

        If you didn’t get the early game in your pull, let me know. I can post for today also. Else I just do it tomorrow & Sunday

      • 00liber

        I got today’s, I did the pull in a half-asleep stupor, so if anything looks outta whack let me know.

  5. yanksgiantsdevils33

    BTW the Highest Vladimir Guerrero picker is on Page 2 with a streak of 22. Please rain out.

  6. Heyya

    Hey every one yeah I live in Toronto so I am able to see most of the blue jays games and I have noticed Adam Lind’s ability to hit pitchers he has no experience with day in day out.

  7. yanksgiantsdevils33

    During interleague play only take NL players anywhere or AL players in AL parks. Or perhaps pick from the all NL game (Astros @ Dodgers this weekend).

  8. Heyya

    Did you see Adam Linds homerun? Thats 4 straight games with a homer for Lind. Boooom chakalaka. ahhh man (N) Braun

    • LaVolpe

      Now 0-4. Adds some excitement here. Let’s hope next time he comes to bat 1st base is open with 1 or 2 outs and a 1 run lead; should equate to IBB

    • Nymets1979

      Of course, since I had him and changed. I figured he’d be a PH and don’t like the 1 AB chances. 😡

      • LaVolpe

        Well you and about 25% of the entire BTS world are still alive. Reyes will lead off, so no intentional walk. Should be against the closer and will he walk, hit, or get out? Drum roll please…

      • LaVolpe

        Not so fast skippy. Three possibilities with him on 2nd & no outs. Loss, Tie, Win. All equally possible at this point.

  10. champion_88

    I really doubt Reyes would have been intentionally walked unless it was 2nd and 3rd.

    It was practically impossible for him to get on via an intentional walk in the 8th inning.

    • 00liber

      If Tejeda would’ve gotten on base or even just moved the runner up, the pitcher spot then would then sacrifice putting a runner on 3rd with Jose up and Turner after. I think that LA would absolutely give Jose the free pass to pitch to Turner.

  11. LaVolpe

    With J.Reyes going down, 4 games left, we are setting at a 45% reset rate for today. Now Kemp, the 2nd most picked, is 0-1, 5th inning, with 2 more ABs minimum. If he falls, looking at 55% or better reset rate today. HOU leads by 5, so you’d think game plan is pitch to contact which will give Kemp & Ethier a better shot of getting hits.

    • LaVolpe

      Kemp takes down quite a few more. Reset rate for this Friday was 56.6%.
      Many of us will be starting over Saturday morning

      • yanksgiantsdevils33

        Kemp killed me on the Fox sports game, I’m thankful for the Cubs game if this were a 7:00 lock time, I would have switched to Kemp and both streaks would be back to 0.

  12. Heyya

    Danny Espinosa .314 avg versus lefties. .200 versus righties. which means this far into the season most of his hits are against lefties.;)

    • LaVolpe

      No, that’s not what it means. You need to look at the whole story.
      Faced lefties just 66 times while righties 174 times. Has more hits off righties than lefties

  13. Heyya

    There is more right handed pitchers then left handed pitchers in the MLB i meant the preportion of bats he has had against lefties and righties hes gotten more hits against lefties obviously because of the average.

    • LaVolpe

      Obviously. If you look at his splits, the only good numbers he has is batting from the right side. And that’s a small snapshot. All his other numbers are near the Mendoza line. That’s what makes this game so frustrating, one could pick a 200 hitter and get a hit, while J.Reyes with killer numbers goes 0-fer & they pitched to Reyes last night, except for his last AB walk that was a result of a bit of wildness, not an unintentional intentional walk. Anyway I picked Zimmerman from that game & he’s got a homer already 🙂

  14. Heyya

    what i meant by this far into the season is were almost at the all star break , that is a given the fact players have more at bats against righties because of how many right handed pitchers there are compared to left handed. Who is to say he wouldn’t have a greater average if he had the same amount of at bats against lefties as righties?

    • LaVolpe

      We can play “what if” all day long. Who is to say that given another 120 ABs against lefties, he doesn’t hit sub-200? If this game were played on paper with simple stats, the game would be boring and have no money prizes, because nearly everyone would win. As it is now, it is more or less like rolling dice.

      • champion_88

        Eh, I think there is certainly a large component of skill involved, with a small dose of luck mixed in.

        Sort of like actually playing in the majors.

        I find it pretty easy to make successful picks each day, but when I get close to double digits, I always get too focused on the small details and end up making a dumb pick, whereas the “formula pick” comes through.

        That’s why I have a bunch of 6-game streaks this year, but no streak over 8 games.

      • LaVolpe

        Skill? Pfffft. Takes as about as much skill as breathing. Any skill involved is on the batter’s part. What skill is there in picking someone based off of a gut feeling? What about stats? Like that takes skill, unless you count mouse clicking skillful then I’ll agree there. I’ve said it last year and again anytime. This game is a lot like dice. You roll ’em and hope for the best; nearly 100% luck.
        Is it skillful to pick a .087 hitter who goes 2-4? Nope, just luck.
        Is it skillful to pick a .330 hitter with a .440 avg vs a pitcher that has an overall opposing average above .300? Nope. What happens when that hitter goes 0-4? Lack of skill? Nope, bad luck.
        If one can make a successful living off of making picks in this game, then I’ll say he/she is skillful; else it’s just delusional for everyone else

      • champion_88

        I never said there was no luck involved.

        For example, if you get it to where your formula picks successful picks 90% of the time, then, yes, you will still need some luck to win, since that 10% chance of failure will still be present every day.

        But making picks with a success rate of 90% VS making picks with a success rate of 60% is where the skill comes in.

      • LaVolpe

        It’s a tremendous amount of luck, period. If someone we were to see season stats of all BTS players that played in 120-150 games during the year, I wouldn’t be surprised to see a success rate somewhere between 55-65%. Why? Simply, most people pick batters based on favorable stats. And statistically, you’ll improve your streak vs. reset much, much more often. For those that actually understand baseball very well, I’d expect that rate to improve to 65-75%. Now. Take the best that have played BTS; their success rate on their best streak was no more than 85% and most of the better players somewhere around 70% (about a 40-gamer). That’s on their best streak. Throwing out those occasional lucky ones that happen to get a 30+ gamer twice in one season, even the best probably have an overall success rate around 80-85%. So what does it mean if the best are only about 5-10% better than the “average”? Take a look at me for example. I’ve never gotten a streak greater than 20, yet this year, my success rate is 77%. Sounds to me like all are equally skilled at nothing or some are a bit luckier than others.
        Now, I do agree that anyone that plays this game for more than a year, should get better at it theoretically. It isn’t a result of increased skill, but increased knowledge and awareness of the game, the players, and the intangibles of baseball: pinch hitting, manager tendencies, etc. Game is most luck and the better players will simply be more knowledgeable about the game as a whole.
        This game does not meet an definition of the word “skill” that I am familiar with, without stretching the concept of a skill. This game is similar to dice, picking a winning horse, or winning your football pool. What part of this game do you, me, or anyone playing it, have on the outcome of the batter’s success/failure? Obviously, the answer is none. Therefore, since the end result is 100% out of our hands, how can that be defined as anything but luck, good or bad and educated guesses?It’s a tremendous amount of luck, period.

I use antivirus AVAST and if you are experiencing the same issue, here’s is what I did to fix it: simply force AVAST to update its virus definitions.

      Gaby Sanchez, but not high on the list. Reyes would’ve been nice, but got hit on last AB. Maybe a Yankee? The Cubbies been giving ’em all they can handle.

    Sometimes bad luck just comes one’s way. How’d you feel if you picked a Dodger in their game?
    – 1-0 LAD score @ home, 8 innings batted, 3 hits, 0 walks, hit into 1 double play
    – Only the lead-off batter made it to plate 4 times, 0-4
    – Kemp, Ethier each 0-2 with 1 walk
    – Loney had 1 hit & Navarro had the other 2
    – HOU didn’t do much better: 3 hits, 2 walks. Keppinger with 1 hit & C.Johnson with the other 2
    – Hittable pitchers, except for today: Kuroda & Norris

    ESPN has: Streak for the Cash. Same idea, but its a monthly game that you have to get to 27 wins in a row from the games listed. You can pick as many or as few games per day but only one at a time . We have some of us blogger members in a group there too if you’re interested.

    Keith, if you want, send me todays files and I can do tomorrow’s pull since its a late lock (last night shift for a couple weeks). Or if you feel so inclined as to just do it yourself, by all means go right ahead.

      Cubs poorly performing bullpen moved you to 5. Sometimes seeing them in action is just plain painful, 14 batters in 2 innings, ugh! 😦
