Beat the Streak Report: Weekend, July 29-31

Another week down, Streakers. Trade Deadline action is heating up, pennant races are shaking out and you still have a few more days to start a new Streak with the $5.6 million grand prize in play.

Current pace-setter mimiziemann advanced to 33 games courtesy of Adrian Gonzalez last night, which puts her squarely in line for a move up the season leaderboard if she can survive the weekend. Just to help out, we’ve provided the answer key to your Friday-Sunday test below.

After 32 straight winning picks, it looks like it’s time to start taking mimiziemann‘s streak seriously.

The Melk Man delivered a double yesterday, pushing Mimi into a tie for the seventh-longest run this season. Just three more successful days until we start sending out interview emails! And just 22 correct picks after that until we start sending out huge checks — huge both in number ($5.6 million) and actual size.

Doorsrule and holt359 are hanging in second place on the current leaderboard at 31 games a pop, but this is the Mimi Show for at least one more day.

Home Run Beat the Streak pick:

Jose Bautista: (31 home runs this season) vs. Orioles starter Brad Bergesen

Beat the Streak Report: Wednesday, July 27

Welcome to Let’s Make a Streak!

Behind Door No. 1: A 27-year-old infieder riding a 23-game hitting streak. He’s batting .304 on the year, .408 in July and .348 in his last five games.

Behind Door No. 2: A 26-year-old infielder who’s hit in 24 straight games. He’s batting .297 on the year, .400 in July and .400 in his last five games.

Behind Door No. 3: Sorry, there is no Door No. 3 on Let’s Make a Streak!

As you may have guessed, Dustin Pedroia is the gentleman behind Door No. 1. Let’s Make a Streak is pretty easy like that. Many of you have taken advantage of the Laser Show’s recent run, placing him among the 15 most popular selections for each of the last nine BoSox game days.

Emilio Bonifacio – that’s him behind the second door — has been almost as good but not nearly as popular of late. The Marlins third baseman is raking like he’s never raked before, but hasn’t been a factor on the most-picked list at any point in the last two weeks.

We’re not saying Bonifacio is a must-pick, or even that you need to take him over Pedroia. But c’mon Streakers, the dude hasn’t gone hitless in a month. Show him a little love.

Beat the Streak Report: Tuesday, July 26

Ahoy, Streakers! After several days of aimless drifting in the Sea of 20-game Streaks, a few of you finally made landfall on 30-game Isle last night.

Chase Utley, Jacoby Ellsbury and Adrian Gonzalez helped Jerrystuppy, mimiziemann and rrsiebe dock safely in the harbor, earning those lucky Streakers one-month MLB.tv subscriptions and the undying respect and/or envy of their peers. The dynamic trio join 21 previous Streakers on the beach (30-game Isle is known for white-sand beaches), but the road ahead is treacherous: only six of those 21 lasted long enough to reach 33 games.

Good luck, Bourn-speed and enjoy the buffet, friends!

Home Run Beat the Streak pick:

Kevin Youkilis: (14 home runs this season) vs. Royals starter Danny Duffy

Beat the Streak Report: Monday, July 25

Marlins third baseman Emilio Bonifacio went a combined 5-for-12 in three games over the weekend, extending his hit streak to 23 games and bringing a played-out 13-year-old pop culture reference (EMILIOOOOOOOO!!!)  back from the dead.

Despite tying Ryan Braun and Hunter Pence for the season’s second-longest run, Bonifacio hasn’t earned much respect around Streakland. The speedster wasn’t among your top 15 selections on Friday, Saturday or Sunday. He’s off today before a tough road date against Jordan Zimmermann  and the Nationals tomorrow. We’re not saying you should pencil him in for every day in your future Streak queue, but show a dude on a hot streak a little respect.

I mean, only 10 of you are riding current runs better than 23 games, and nobody is over 29 right now. I’m not sayin’, I’m just sayin’: you could use the help. Boom.

Home Run Beat the Streak pick:

Albert Pujols: (22 home runs this season) vs. Astros starter J.A. Happ

Beat the Streak Report: Weekend, July 22-24

Well, well, well … look at you, Streakers! Four of your five favorite batsmen successfully forded the river last night, advancing a combined 41.7 percent of selectors in the process. No word yet on whether any oxen were lost or any cholera was contracted.

Either way, the safe crossing places a large number of you one day closer to establishing a homestead in the rich and fertile valley at the end of the 57-game trail.

A rough guide for the weekend is below, but you’re entering largely uncharted territory. Steer clear of hostile wildlife, stock up at the local trading posts and don’t hunt down more meat than you can carry back to your wagon.

Adrian Gonzalez once again won the popularity contest and once again delivered the mail on Wednesday. Boston’s first baseman pounded out four hits against Orioles pitching, advancing 16.2 percent of all Streakers 24 hours closer to owning their own yachts, or sailboats, or cigarette boats or whatever other type of watercraft you can purchase with a $5.6 million grand prize.

Davidldargan currently sits the closest to needing a boating license at 29 games. Better brush up on those flag signals, Dave — only 28 more days to go!

Red Sox filled the top two slots on your grocery lists yesterday, and the results were mixed. Jacoby Ellsbury baked a cake for 22.7 percent of all pickers, singling once in four at-bats against Jeremy Guthrie and the Orioles bullpen. Adrian Gonzalez burned his dinner, though, resetting 8.4 percent of you with an 0-for-4.

The leader sits at 29 games. One more successful day and they’ll get a name mention in this here space. Exciting!

Pauly Konks was quite the popularity king last night, taming the giant that is Kyle Davies  for 28 percent of you in a 1-for-4 effort. Adrian Gonzalez chipped in to advance another 10.4 percent, making Monday a productive one in Streakland.

Former leader erakelson was not among the fortunate, however, dropping off the map at 29 games thanks to an O-fer from Raul Ibanez. We know he’s been hot and all, but Raul Ibanez? To each his own, we guess.

Beat the Streak Report: Monday, July 18

New day, new week and a new leader, Streakers.

Hankwoods was unable to survive the weekend, seeing his streak go down in flames at 37 games on Saturday. Thirty-seven ties Mr. Woods for the season’s second-longest run, but unfortunately entitles him to a cash prize of only $0.00.

Hank got back on the horse yesterday but was among the 16.1 percent of you who reset to zero thanks to Ryan Braun’s injury-shortened 0-for-1 effort. Life lesson: stay away from the guy who’s questionable to play a full nine innings. You’re welcome for that earth-shattering advice!

Anyway, erakelson sits atop the current standings at 29 games, with finelin33 second at 27. Please at least pretend to root for them as they journey toward the 57-game promised land.
