Beat the Streak Report: Thursday, August 25
Joe Turner, don’t get too comfortable in that season leader chair.
Robinson Cano advanced Phils4ever75 to 37 games last night, tying our current leader with Hank Woods for third place in the season standings.
For those of you not keeping score at home, Phils would need five more correct picks to set the $10,000 pace and another 15 after that to multiply the potential prize by 560.
