Yesterday’s results

Hanley Ramirez was the trendy pick among BTS titans Thursday.  The dynamic shortstop’s 1-for-4 night helped sustain jagzrule77’s perch atop the leaderboard, as his streak reached 37 games. 

Moving into a tie for second — also on the strength of Han-Ram — were cwahl and phadrus74, who pushed their runs of perfection to 35 in a row.

It wasn’t good news all around, though, as thatsawinner didn’t live up to his name for the first time in a long time, incorrectly selecting Albert Pujols to end a formidable 35-game streak.
