Beat the Streak Report: Thursday, July 28

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.

    Will today be the end of Pedroia’s streak? Maybe not. But one thing that’s almost certain is that when it happens, he’ll take a lot BTS streakers with him

  2. vinny1979

    MLB’s games seem to be down for now. I can’t get my daily results as of yet. Season stats are fine but there is no percentages up yet for any day.

  3. yanksgiantsdevils33

    Got pinched by Crawford, I took him because of his 6 for 11 against Luke Hochevar and he pinch hit in the 9th. The highest picker that took Crawford was at 24 so I can imagine how he feels. For those still waiting there are 63 days left including today.

      Or a jumble of letters and numbers when making a new pick where a pick wasn’t made before? The 500 Error is only when I try to change a pick I made before.

        Somehow I knew someone would say that. 🙂 It was working a few days ago and now it’s not.
