MLB Beat The Streak

Anyone going to play this year or play before?

It got a lot more enticing last year adding points you can trade for stuff and they added the risky but lucrative double down feature. Last year I was proud, I got like 24 hit streak and the winner was 41 or something

Be interesting to hear how other people here do

I'm guessing you're going to have to double down everyday if you're going to win?

I'm wondering what has happened in past years. Did the person winning the million double down every time to get there the fastest? It seems like with the amount of people I'm guessing play this game, you'd have to double down every time if you wanted to win the million.

Well first of you nee to get 57 hit streak to get the 5.6 million but no one in the history of the game has ever even got to 50 so the top prize for highest streak without getting to 57 is 10k.

So no you dont have to double down as to win 5.6 million it would take 57 days with 0 double downs. It helps if there are 2 people who are absolutely on a tear like Scutaro and Posey were during the last 20+ games

Also the page is now working and is ready for this season but I havent seen the points rewards yet, I hope theres custom jerseys like last season

mlb.com is a very good site lol.

I forgot my password, and can't access my old email so I try to create an account with a different email.

Tells me there's already an account with that email(I'm fairly certain there wasn't), so I use the password reset feature and the email they send says there is no account with that email.

Then why did you tell me there was? And why can't I create one with that email?

Took Adrian Gonzalez (absolutely wrecks Cain historically) and Harper for today.

Guess Harper was a good pick. 2 home runs and their only 2 runs of the game.

The rewards are the same as last year. I am 1600 points away from a custom jersey but only 8 left already and only 10 pair of tickets left too

3.5 million if you win it all (no one ever has) 10,000 if you have the longest streak out of anybody, and other little things for smaller milestones.

its 5.6 million if you get 57 hit streak and theres other prizes for longest hit streak in the month i believe plus 10k if you have the longest hit streak if no one gets to 57

The rewards you can cash in for points you accumulate by building a streak

-MLB.com 10% Shop Discount
-MLB.com 25% Shop Discount
-7 days free MLB.TV
-30 days free MLB.TV
-Shoutout from @MLB
-MLB.com Guest Columnists
-Customized Jersey
-Pair of Regular Season Tickets

They have limited quantities and some are already sold out, dont know if they will replenish at some point before the season is over. Hoping to get a jersey before they sell out

Heres the link for the prizes (not the rewards for the points)

And damn you miggy, 0/5!?

How are they already sold out of some stuff if the season just started two days ago?

Anyway, I joined. I will probably suck, because I only focus on the Indians and the team the Indians are playing at the time.
