Beat the Streak Report: Weekend, Aug. 12-14

Streakland diversified the portfolio in a favorable market on Thursday, hitting with top picks Miguel Cabrera (9.3 percent), Justin Upton (8.4) and Robinson Cano (7.0).

Jturner leads current streakers into the weekend, heading up the standings at 31 games. Make it another week, and season top dog Jonathan Roy might start sweating a little bit.

How many days are left in the season? Just so I know when a streak has to be started to have a chance at getting to 41.

Oh, and Hochevar isn’t pitching today, Chen is, according to MLB.com.

48 days including today, streak must start by next Friday.

Thanks!

Sunday’s pick of Wright against Jason Marquis?? umm who ever writes this apparently didnt get the information that Marquis was traded to arizona at the trade dealine

and this is the actual matchup for Sunday,

The pitcher is right but the team is wrong. The HR BTS pick for Sunday is way wrong.

a “NO PICK” highlights people with 20 games or more. the no pick is at 21
43 people start tonite at 20 or better.
Braun was picked by 4. Gonzalez was picked by 3 including the leader.
Holliday, Berkman, Castro, and Pence were each picked by 3
Victorino, Ellsbury, Tulowitzki, Utley, Uggla were all picked by 2.

Runner up goes with Pierre, Reyes gets picked again by the 27 gamer
Victorino, VMartinez and Ellsbury by those tied for 4th.

How many are going down This weekend???

Highest “No Selection” :P pg# 2 with a streak of 21 OUCH!! back to zero.

This is the real highest no selection. Forgot to put it in above.

Vin, you got uggala on the list twice. (120&87)

i bet one was suppose to have been Utley.

The second Uggla shouldn’t be there at all.

Thanks. Didn’t even realize it.

Pence and Bourn both get 0-fors to derail 346
Mauer, Zimmerman and Pence all derail people with 20 game streaks
Pierre has derailed 2nd place

Thank you Phillies for eliminating me in Odyssey. Unbelievable :(

60 Streakers over 20 are on the Braves bandwagon today with Bourn (12X) and Uggla (9X) being picked the most.
Pujols (5X), Holliday (4X), Braun (3X including leader),
JUpton (2nd place), Victorino, Ellsbury, Castro (all 2X)
THREE above 20 will not advance, they took people on DL.

Streak busters in the early games: Pujols derails streaks at 27, 25 ,24, 20,and 20.
Holliday derails at 25, 25, 22, and 22 and Ibanez stops a 20 gamer.
thats TEN busted of streaks over 20.

It seems harder to get hits in July-September then in April-June but maybe that’s just me. I took Albert Pujols (hot hitter) against Jason Hammel (cold pitcher… at least coming in). I had a tough time deciding between Pujols and Matt Holliday who both had good success against Hammel in short history (Pujols 2 for 2, Holliday 3 for 4. I randomly took Pujols and he went 0 for 3 and a walk. Holliday is 0 for 2 and a walk but he has chance leading off the 9th. The Rockies are up 6-1 and I could say that this is probably one of the most unpredictable O fers that I’ll see. BTW Holliday just struck out so both are upset O fers. There are 46 days left of the season after today.

And yes Holliday is on the Hot hitter list as well. According to vinny there are 168 Top2500 streaks between the two. This includes 3 of each on the front page.

i stayed away from both of them today. i had thought about riding holliday after last nite but went with Utley instead. Right now im leaning towards Braun 5-for-9 against the Pirates Morton.
im sitting at 12 and i can not imagine how someone over 20 is feeling right now seeing 10-15 people dropping everynite.
