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!
We had to wait all the way to the third inning before David DeJesus extended the streak. There was some discussion about the hit as the play could have been ruled an error, but the official scorer smiled on those who picked DeJesus and left it as a hit. The standings are below, and they are getting crowded at the top, get your picks in for today’s game! Good luck!
What else is new? Junior Lake took the first pitch of the game and roped it into left field to give a number of players three points. Lake has now extended the streak three times since the contest started on 8/1, below are the standings through last nights game. Quick turnaround as the Cubs and Phillies get things going at 11:35 AM CST, so get your picks in!
A right oblique strain has landed Luis Valbuena on the DL, that’s the bad news, the good news is that the Cubs have called up Logan Watkins. Many fans, including myself have been wanting the Cubs to call up Watkins for his tremendous plate discipline and ability to get on base. Watkins will get the start at second base today for the Cubs, he doesn’t have the range or glove that Barney has but he trumps Barney at the plate, and if he is going to hit eight like Barney did then I will take a .230 average and a .340+ on base percentage. That is something that Barney hasn’t been able to do, I hope Watkins takes this opportunity and runs with it.
Junior Lake is a popular choice in the no hit streak contest, as he should be. Lake got things started for the Cubs again yesterday making Junior Lake the correct choice in two out of the three games so far. Only two participants are perfect through three games, @WesJameson11, and @FWKRT have both picked the correct player and inning of all three games. There is a long way to go, but currently they are both tied atop the standings, get your picks in for today, 1:20 PM CST first pitch, good luck!
