Picked Aaron Hill for Thursday.

I have been playing this game for a few years now and it still amazes me how difficult the game actually is.

Some rookie pitcher (Ray) broke up my 19 game streak holding Markakis hitless. Markakis and MCab have been my go to guys during the streak.

19 is a pretty good streak. ;-D

I'm going with Hill again today.

Beginners luck and now I'll never be satisfied with a 10 gamer.

I'm pulling for you with Hill today (on 2 of my teams) but it's not looking good.

For what its worth, I'm the current leader with 34 games. I'm most likely going Mccann for today. 6 for 7 vs. Blanton ;-D , .319 vs philly ;-D , .287 at home :-o , .308 career vs. righties ;-D . Blanton has a 9.64 ERA, and 1.71 WHIP in 14 IP vs. ATL, and he gave up 6 runs on 8 hits in 8 IP last time out against ATL ;-D . I get the feeling like the Mccann's career performance against Blanton listed on MLB.com and Yahoo doesn't include this year as Mccann is 5 for 8 against Blanton this year, which is obviously still good, but can someone confirm that observation? Also Mccann is 0 for his last 7 so he should be due for a hit...

Anything I'm missing guys? Is there someone else I should look at? What say you?

Nice job! I got to 22 a few weeks ago and then lost it to then NL BA-leader Tejada. I was at 9 recently until I picked David Wright not seeing he had been in a mini-slump. As such, I'm not going to hazard at making a suggestion for you. :-D

I made it to 2 (once) - your assessment looks good to me. ;-7

Think of it this way: if there was a guy batting .989, there's still only a 50% chance of him beating the streak in any given 62 game stretch... 8-o
