Miss or Mash

12 Jul 2019

MLB Strikeouts are way up this year. In fact, MLB hitters are fanning 25% of the time so--not surprisingly--the All-Star Game went Over on Strikeouts--Aroldis Chapman fanning the side in the bottom of the ninth to get to 23. On the flipside, MLB home runs are also way up, and although hitters didn't smash 10 All-Star HRs as they did last year, blasts by Blackmon and Gallo covered the Over One and a Half.

Several players bet and collected on HRs, including macs detail (44) who earned the GridCard win. The Under on Runs and Hits, and the American League's 4-2 win also helped macs beat dangerzone (42) who put up a TallBoy but came away empty. Seven other players posted Qualifying Scores: Dano (33), Zeke (33), Jodyann (32), Ascentave (32), Rico (32), GB55 (31), and MMc (31).
