Another day, another successful double down! That means of course that I must abandon my winning formula and try something new. I will not be selecting Giancarlo Stanton or a Cabrera today which means I'm more than likely doomed. My six streak will instead be in the hands of Los Angeles' Dee Gordon and Seattle's Kyle Seager. Flash Gordon has had quite the time against Diamondbacks starter Trevor Cahill with a .444 career batting average against him. The fact that Cahill has a 1.51 WHIP makes me feel even better about switching allegiances from Stanton. My other pick, Kyle Seager, has yet to record an out against his opposing pitcher today. Nick Martinez gave up 3 hits (2 singles and a double) to Seager in their last encounter. I don't expect the Mariners' All-Star third baseman to keep his perfect BA intact but he should get at least one base knock against a pitcher whom he raked against before. Let it be known that my high streak for the season is 8. That means that even if Dee Seager and the Silver Bullet Band make some hits tonight, the streak will surely end tomorrow. Not even Giancarlo can save me.
Streak for the Cash has channeled the Iron Shiek. It has broken my back and made me humble. I was flying high on a W8 and then the collective football turd known as Manchester United couldn't hold Sunderland off the scoresheet. From there it has been a slalom of wins and losses for me. The bottom of the hill was last night when Washington behind Tanner Roark lost to the supreme lord of the in public dick grab, A.J. Burnett, and the Phillies. I won't shut it down for the remainder of the month as I normally would but may limit myself to one pick a day to limit my win percentage taking a further tumble. That one pick today will be one of my favorite teams, Celtic FC. The Scottish Champions are back in the UEFA Champions League under dubious circumstances but they have received a favorable draw. Slovenian champions Maribor were able to get a draw from Celtic in Slovenia but I don't think they'll get a win or a draw in Glasgow.
