It’s all come down to this, one game remains after Anthony Rizzo launched a solo home run in the first inning today to extend the no-hit streak! Only four contestants remain as there are only three points remaining, no it becomes strategy, the obvious pick might not be the smart ones for the guys in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th. The standings are below, only the players that have a shot at the title are shown, best of luck guys. Be on the lookout for a message from @Cubsnohitstreak for how to submit your final pick.
Darwin Barney broke up the no-hitter against Kershaw in the first inning….hahaha, bet you never thought you would see that sentence. Only a handful of contestants remain as there are only nine total points remaining, time to get creative with your picks guys, and girls. @chicagosports91 extended his lead to three points last night, but it still up for grabs, get your picks in for today’s afternoon affair. Good luck, and go Cubs!
It hasn’t happened a lot (it will next year) but Starlin Castro lead off the game last night to give a few lucky people who still have faith in him three points. The race is tight, only 12 total possible points remaining (4 games), so if you are outside of that you are no longer on the standings, but thanks for playing! Here are the remaining contestants, good luck boys and girls!
Only one week remains in the Cubs no hit streak contest, and things are close at the top of the standings. Anthony Rizzo kept the streak alive yesterday, about six hours before the game actually ended, that was …. fun. See below for the full standings and make sure you get your picks in this week to make a late charge. Good luck!
Per Danny Knobler, David DeJesus has been traded to the Nationals for a player to be named later. The Nationals are in town for a four game series, guess David will just walk across the infield and into their dugout, no word yet on the PTBNL. Wishing you the best Dave, and Kim. The Nationals actually claimed DeJesus off of waivers then the two teams came to terms on a deal. The Cubs are going to save roughly $2.5 million in this deal ($1 million in salary, $1.5 million in buyout), and Ryan Sweeney is close to coming off the DL. Brian Bogusevic is coming off the DL today, and he will be taking the roster spot vacated by DeJesus.
Junior Lake owns the no hit streak contest, as you can tell by the graphic above. Yesterday he came through again in the first inning to reward the players that picked him. What is “inner-sting” as Keith Moreland would say, is that a lot of people that normally pick Lake went a different direction yesterday, oops. Full standings below, get your picks in today we only have 12 days left!
Nate does it again! Unfortunately the Cubs couldn’t sweep the Cardinals yesterday, but taking two out of three in St. Louis is okay with me. More importantly (half kidding) Nate came through for a few people who put their faith in him. Below are the standings through yesterday, World Series Dreaming will have a post up later today that you will want to check out as well! Good luck!
