Play “Beat the Streak” on mlb.com and you could win $20 in 2008

MLB.com has a game called Beat the Streak where you try to put together a hitting streak to beat baseball’s legendary record of 56 games. Choose one player every day who you think will get at least one base hit. If your player gets a hit, your streak is extended. If he fails to get a hit, your streak ends and you can start a new one.

Be the first eligible participant to get a hit in 57 straight games and win $1,000,000 in cash.

I’m also doing my own little pool/league and if you win the league, you get $20 via paypal from me!

Requirements to join the Amazing League:

1) Leave occasional comments on this blog post about the status of your team.

2) I have to know who you are. If I don’t know you, then introduce yourself to me and I might let you in.

One year I got an 11-game streak. Think you can beat that? If you get the longest streak in the Amazing League, you get $20. It’s totally free to join my league. I’m offering the twenty bucks out of my pocket just to make it interesting. One year, we had about 10 people in the league.
