Beat the Streak Report: Wednesday, June 22


Yesterday was a throwback Tuesday in Streakland, with ageless wonder Bobby Abreu leading the hit parade for 11.5 percent of all selectors.

We wonder where all you guys came up with that idea? What’s that old saying — even a blind MLBlog sometimes finds an Angels DH? Pretty sure that’s how it goes.

Anyway, Pauly Konks and Adrian Gonzalez also converted last night, combining to push an additional 18.6 percent of Streakers 24 hours closer to a 10 percent down payment on the $56 million house of their dreams.

Wednesday’s picks are below, please enjoy them responsibly. Nobody says you have to go and take Justin Upton today — hey, it’s your Streak on the line — but just remember that the Report is on a little bit of a (one-day) roll.


Wednesday’s picks:

(Make a BTS pick)

Leaderboard time!

On Monday, Ryan Braun got sick. On Tuesday, Joey Votto and the Reds got rained out. On Wednesday, we may finally get to see sebringt make a run at 35 games. Either that, or we’ll know there’s a force even bigger than BTS at work here.
