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 […]

Who has the longest streak of games with a strikeout? 37 consecutive games with a strikeout Pitcher Bill Stoneman (4/30/71 – 4/21/72) 36 consecutive games with a strikeout Picther Bob Veale (7/21/67 – 8/18/68) 34 consecutive games with a strikeout Pitcher Vida Blue (4/9/71 – 9/12/71) 29 consecutive games with a strikeout Pitcher Jim Nash […]

May has not been too kind with me so far. I’m using strategy #7 this month: the top 30 players with the most GH from 2010. (GH = Games with a Hit). You’d think the top of the list should totally rock the start of May. After all, last year they were the best Beat […]
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. It’s almost cheating to play Ichiro every day. But since he’s the best BTS player ever, it’s actually smart. I’m just not that smart, so I try […]

Open one pack of baseball cards. Play ALL the hitters in that pack for one month. I did this for the month of April 2011. For the month of April, I’m played all the players in my 2011 Topps Opening Day pack. Here’s who I got:
In 2009 I developed the following strategy: Look at top 8 pitching staffs that has given up the most hits in the past 30 days. Look at those 8 teams those staffs are facing. Of those 8 teams, find team with the most hits in the past seven days Start with team that has most […]
