Well, isn’t “bretzky26″ making things interesting?

Our fearless leader upped his/her streak to a robust 37 games after successfully choosing Mark Teixeira for Tuesday’s slate.

“bretzky26″ is now just a 20-game streak away from taking home the big bucks.

Let’s see how this one all shakes out.

Time for Wednesday’s picks

Leaderboard time!

Unfortunately, “pops50″ saw his/her streak go down in flames after Hanley Ramirer went hitless. We’ll miss you, pops.

That means that “astoclubgoer” is in second place in the standings with a 31-gamer.

On that note, he is also the only streaker outside of “bretzky26″ who
still has enough time on the calendar to put together a 57-game streak.

It looks like someone wants to play ball, after all.

BTS leader “bretzky36″ survived the long weekend and now sports a 36-game after Ryan Zimmerman’s fruitful Monday at the yard.

With less than a month left in the season, “bretzky36″‘s 36-gamer should
add some much-needed BTS energy after we admittedly fell into a rut
once Geoff Croke’s 43-gamer hit the hay.

So splash some water in your eyes, put on a crisp new shirt and let’s get this party started. “bretzky36″, we’re here for you.

Does anyone actually want to win this thing?

One day after flirting with him and putting on the Feldman full-court
press, “jpells10″ rewards me by selecting Albert Pujols who proceeds to
0-fer and zaps a 31-game streak.

The conch now belongs to “bretzky26″. Do with it as you may.

The pause button was pressed on “jpells10″‘s 30-game streak, as his selection, Troy Tulowitzki, was a late scratch.
