Travis Snider tops the list of players to not use for Beat the Streak. Currently he has 43 games without a hit. Since he’s played in 74 games this year, that means he’s gotten a hit in 42% of his games (that percentage is lowest so far in 2014). Not only does his .226 batting […]
Three players share the top spot with 66 games with a hit (GH). Daniel Murphy, Melky Cabrera, and Jose Altuve. Which of these three players should you prefer? You don’t want a player that will get lots of goose eggs in a game (going 0-for-4 or 0-for-3). I call these GzH (Games with zero Hits) […]

Don’t have time for a full fantasy baseball league? Beat the Streak is the game for you. If you miss making a day in making a pick for Beat the Streak, MLB no longer resets your streak. MLB is really nice to freeze your streak when you forget to make a pick. This encourages people […]
I’ve made my fancy database that takes in five different criteria and it spits out one number. Here’s the top five players to pick today: Joey Votto – Cin Drew Stubbs – Cin Matt Kemp
Asander’s strategy from April 27, 2011 Batter must be hitting around 300 with plenty of plate appearances so far this season. Must be facing a struggling pitcher, whose era is at least 5.00. Batter is on home turf, pitcher is away. Batters team is above 500 on the season, pitcher’s team below… I also like […]
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 […]
[UPDATED JULY 12, 2013] This is very similar to the Beat the Streak Strategy #4: At least one hit per game percentage, but it’s a little simplier. It’s just how many games a player got at least one hit. I call this stat GH (Games with a Hit).
