Looks like the 3rd place guy is slow playing try to steal the monthly prize – I guess we’ll see if he goes with Mauer and Morneau the rest of the way

Oh, I guess I misinterpreted the rules then?

I thought the monthly prize would be whomever gets the longest streak, comprised entirely of days within that month.

Meaning you could technically win the September monthly prize with a streak under 30 games, since there is only 28 days in the month.

Glad to see that Tuesday’s blog post is up late AGAIN and watch the post time lie and say it went up at 1100 AM again!

Yep – Definitely slow playing – has Morneau again. Not a bad strategy, but the guy at 31 should do the same and force him to pick.

Depends on how many hits the guy had in the game that got him to 31 though.

If it was only 1, then the strategy could go onto the last day of the season and the leader would have to pick between being vulnerable or just going for it and risking 2 weeks of no-picks.

Actually, no, I forgot that if you are tied, you both get the monthly prize.

So he could wait now until the no-pick guy budges into a tie with him before having to make that decision.

But the basic idea is the same as what I posted above.
