Total Bases calculation updated at 12:09 p.m. ET
There is a bit of confusion (and misinformation) in the Conversations about how to calculate Total Bases. Only hits count towards the total, with singles, doubles, triples, and home runs counting correspondingly for 1, 2, 3, and 4 total bases.

Today's Preview
A busy Saturday, highlighted by two World Baseball Classic matchups. We close in the unusual location of Columbus, Ohio, where UFC 96 is taking place.

The morning begins in Europe, where two of soccer's best-known teams are in Streak action. First, AS Roma hosts Udinese in a Serie A match. Udinese needs only a draw to win the Streak matchup. Then a few minutes after this match is scheduled to finish, Manchester United visits Fulham for an FA Cup quarterfinal encounter. This time it's the home squad that receives the draw.

WBC (USA vs. Canada) -- Justin Morneau vs. Derek Jeter
Baseball makes its 2009 debut on the Streak when the USA national team takes on Canada in Toronto. We've listed a total bases matchup between 2006 AL MVP Morneau and Derek "Mr. November" Jeter. Will the Yankees' beloved shortstop prove to be Mr. March as well?

At 9 p.m. the No. 5 Louisville Cardinals visit West Virginia in yet another Big East showdown. While the oddsmakers see the Mountaineers as slight favorites, early Streakers are tilting heavily in the Cards' direction.

Yesterday's Results
Streakers stormed back with a vengeance on Friday as they rode Bradley, James Madison, and the Miami Heat to a huge day, winning about 70 percent of their selections. The Leaderboard took a corresponding step forward, as most of the top Streaks picked at least one of those teams to win.
