List your current streak number, who you've got this day, and if time allows WHY you made the pick(s).

4/8 Took JD Martinez and Mike Trout today and hit both so my new streak is at 2.  Martinez and Trout are in "THE ZONE" and absolutely raking right now.

I had a 5 game streak going but Ketel Marte skrewed me yesterday with an O-fer @ Colorado.  How does a guy NOT get a hit @ Colorado???

Current Streak at 2.

Definitely going with Corey Seager in tomorrow's afternoon game.  He's on a roll and I like to pick players that bat towards the top of the order because they might just get that 5th AB.  Doesn't hurt that Seager is 5 for 5 lifetime against Joe Ross.  Might double down on a second pick later.

Same with me for Marte yesterday, back on the Trout Train today to get back to 1.   Don't forget to claim your Mulligan!

Marte yanked his right hamstring Wednesday in Colorado and is on the 10 day IL.

I did not know that.  So, I guess, my apology is in order.

Thinking about adding Trout for a double-down.  He's HR'd in three straight games and they are playing in that cracker jack stadium in Florida where the wind is always gusting out.  I'm going to sleep on that. 

Seager is locked and loaded!

Agree he's on a roll but that's very heavy juice for Dodgers -310

@darren3472

Would never lay -300 on any MLB game.

Beat the Streak you're just wanting one hit from Seager.  peace_5

Not completely sold on Trout today.  T J Zeuch is an intimidating pitcher at 6'7" he looks like a Right Handed Randy Johnson.  I'm waiting for the Yankees to post their line-up and considering LeMahieu instead.  Rich Hill is a junk-baller and the type of pitcher LeMahieu can slap for a multi hit game.

 Ah gotcha

Unfortunately I only have over/under 1.5 hits for Seager with over +160

Ah, so you aren't wagering this at a book. 

However maybe he gets 2 today?

Thanks for the thread Goose. Been playing for a while. Had a 5 gamer until I zeroed out. On a current two gamer with Trout (I hear you on your take) and Castellanos (Reds). Playing Trout because he's Trout and Castellanos is up there in hitting averge. Been riding Mercedes from the White Sox. Good luck.

Streak at 3.

This is a tough pick today.  There might not be a path out but I think there is a path through.

When logic makes no sense then you must deduct by process of elimination.

Turner vs Darvish... Pass

Cronenworth vs Kershaw... Pass

Soto vs Weaver... Pass

Lowrie vs Mize... GL with facing a #1 first rounder who is absolutely dealing.  Pass.

Guerrero vs Santana... GL vs a 38 year old veteran who knows every pitch in this game might be his last.  Pass.

That leaves Acuna.  Why not?

And I have a sleeper pick.  With that said I shall retire to three Ambien bullets and see you in the morning.

Goodnight covers.
