Fantasy Baseball: Beat the Streak, July 2

Barry BealCorrespondent IJuly 2, 2008

A player on MLB.com Beat the Streak currently has a 46-game hitting streak. That means he's just 11 days away from winning $1 million. My current hitting streak is at two. Maybe he should be the one giving me advice on Bleacher Report.

Nevertheless, I went 2-2 last night. It's good to see the league's leading hitter back in action and legging out a double.

Yesterday’s Picks

Chipper Jones, Atlanta Braves – 1-3

Dmitri Young, Washington Nationals – 1-4

 

Picks for Wednesday, July 2Picks lock at 12:05 Eastern

Brian Roberts, Baltimore Orioles

It must be tough to gain respect when you’re in a division with Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, Manny Ramirez, and the upstart Rays. But Brian Roberts deserves more attention given his talent. He’s an excellent defender and a very good hitter. He’s hitting .295 on the season, and he’s hitting .394 against Royals’ starter Gil Meche.

Chipper Jones, Atlanta Braves

Chipper is back on the field after avoiding a stint on the disabled list. He has another good matchup tonight against the Phillies. Adam Eaton’s opponent’s batting average is .288, and Jones has four hits in seven at-bats against him.
