Beat the Streak Report: Thursday, July 7

Yesterday’s top four selections each hit paydirt, advancing a combined 28 percent of pickers in the process. Among those making the leap were current leaders jero07 (34 games) and Usfmatt (33), both of whom have established themselves among the season’s top five Streakers.

Is it too early to talk about one of them taking home the $5.6 million grand prize? Maybe. Is it too early for us to preemptively RSVP “attending” to Jero’s potential victory party on behalf of the entire BTS staff? Didn’t think so.

You just provide first class airfare and five-star hotel accommodations, and we’ll be there. Oh, and one of those fresh fruit baskets in the hotel room wouldn’t hurt, either. You just (hypothetically) won $5 million — spring for the one with more mango and less cantaloupe. Much appreciated.

Let’s see how many pick Helton who is sitting today.

He was one of my options too. But he’s not who I settled on.

In that case, let’s see Helton PH then

He just PH, and walked. Don’t think that he’ll stay in the game but you never know.

Just got home. PH & BB? Probably 1st base open I’d bet (too lazy to pull up the box score). No matter, could’ve been punishment for those that picked the early game, could’ve seen the line up in advance. Sometimes this game is too forgiving, but most times not.

Lav, he drew a walk. He wasn’t intentionally walked and than he was pinch run for.

Just to clarify, it wasn’t “intentional” but it might as well have been. After first pitch called strike, O’Flaherty missed with a fastball, then threw one away and Ellis scored. So at 2-1 with first open they didnt take any chances by giving him something to hit.
