Bad day on May 15, 2011

Wow. Yesterday was a bad day for our group. Of the ten people that made a pick, eight of those players didn’t get a hit. That means eight streaks got reset to a ZERO yesterday. Myself (spudart) and nickmaize are the lucky ones to have survived with a hit. My streak now gets up to […]

Beat the Streak Strategy #8: Ichiro

Simply the best Beat the Streak hitter EVER. Like ever ever. Of all time in baseball. Better than Pete Rose. Better than Stan Musial. Better than Lou Gehrig.
