Some BTS users take minutes peering over stats before making their pick of the day. Others rely on recommendations from the Morning Roundup. And then there are those who stick with one player time and time again.
Of course, flyers228 isn’t the only Ichiro fan. Nearly eight percent of BTS users were rewarded by the 1-for-2 performance, including gaudet, who, at 23 games, moved into a four-way tie for fourth place with dbcks961 (Vernon Wells), kblaeuer (Mike Aviles) and smokedmeat (Randy Winn).
Trusting the bat of Vernon Wells again paid dividends for second-place competitor KELVIN, whose streak improved to 27 games after the Blue Jays center fielder singled in three at-bats vs. Baltimore.
