Beat the Streak Report: Tuesday, August 30

With yet another successful Ichiro pick, Steven Summer reached 41 games last night and moved into a tie with Joe Turner atop the BTS season leaderboard.

Stay tuned for tonight’s episode, in which Steve will likely choose between the Mariners leadoff man and a “speedy left-handed player from an NL team” in his quest to take sole possession of the season crown.

woohoo!

Miguel Cabrera’s single through the left side in the 7th pushes my streak to double digits for the 1st time this season at 10 games!

Shocked that was the only hit through the infield off Francis though.

Keith, as it stands right now in SFTC. (830AMet)
Still a 2 horse race.

w25 has no pick selected
w22 has pick selected –> he will have to make 5 (2 basketball, 2 baseball props & the sea/laa game) correct picks today if he wants to win. starting with the Euro Hoops.
Once Ian posts todays blog I’ll continue to update you on that page.
