Here's a game I found on mlb.com. You pick a different player each day that you think is going to get a hit. The object is to see how long of a hit streak going with the overall goal to break DiMaggio's 56 game streak. You can check it out at:

I've created a league for all Cafe Members to join. The league name is Cafe League 2004 and the password is streak.

I'll jump in there. I was up to 9 straight until Vlad went 0 for 4. Go figure.

There seems to be quite a few people playing now. But I can't seem to figure out how it is ranking people. It doesn't seem to change based on current streak or longest streak. Anyone else know?

Its based on the best streaks... so if you have a 30 game streak
and then go 0-4 as long as 30 was the longest streak of the season it will list you as the #1 streak... but will also list your current streak.
BTW I'm in for the cafe league!!

I'm not in it this year, but its a pretty fun minimal time investment game. I rode the heck out of Jose Vidro's 30+ game hit streak in 2002 and almost broke 30. I forgot which player mullliganed it for me after I jumped off Vidro in his late 20's of the hit streak.

Yeah it seems to be fixed now. Originally though it wasn't ranking anyone in any sort of an order.
