dude you had a 2 game winning streak
you really get this upset after snapping a 2 game winning streak?
Anyway I'm back to 2 and I'm searching tomorrow's board. As for that picture of yours Steve_Holt, a bigger streak was ended by that dude. In mlb.com's beat the streak I had a 9 game hitting streak get ended by Manny Ramierez back in May. I picked him due to being 15 for 30 off Jon Garland when he was on the Dodgers and facing the Padres. Manny didn't start, came into pinch hit in the 5th inning, struckout and was removed from the game! Make that 15 for 31 and blew that streak back to 0 (look up May 19 Padres-Dodgers boxscore for evidence). As for beat the streak my longest streak of the season was 17 which started 5 days after the Manny Ramirez stunt. It lasted until the Orioles changed their starting pitcher (on June 10) from Guthrie which resulted in me picking Nick Swisher to Jake Arrieta who is an unfamiliar pitcher and got Nick Swisher to go 0 fer. I tried to get back up reaching double digits 3 more times but felt short each time. Most recently I was at 11 and Ichiro 0 fered me today and now I can no longer tie or beat my longest streak this year.
