I think Jimmy Rollins has a great shot at 44..In this day and age with the crappy pitching, why not? Get hot and who knows how far you can go..Personally I think Joe D's streak will be broken some day...

We were talking about it last night and I believe that major league baseball does not recognize hitting streaks that are carried over to next season. So unfortunately he will simply run out of season.

Barry: I did not know that. Doesn't Hubbell have a two year record for most consecutive wins (or something like that). If pitching is ok, why not hitting?

I know, you are the messenger, not the rule maker. But it does not seem right.

According to official baseball rules a guy can have a recognized hit streak over 2 years but he wont break Dimaggio's single season record which will still be intact.So even if Rollins hits in 60 straight technically he will have the hit streak record but DiMaggio will still have the single season record and probably both will be recognized.There wont be any asterisks argument if it should come up because this has been a rule for awhile.

Rollins is almost as good a choice as anyone to have a long hit streak.He bats leadoff,he has great speed,some power,and he doesnt walk alot or strikeout alot

I think it might be tougher to put together a long streak over two seasons if the season ended mid stread. Say 30 games or so. 50 game streak and 7 game next season not so tough.

The mental pressure to achieve such a fete is enormous.
DiMaggio was able to achieve it in Major League play be-
cause he was well aware of what it takes. You see, he had
been there before. With the San Francisco Seals he ran a
66 game hitting streak just before he came up to the Big
Leagues.

No, I think DiMaggio's 56 - game hitting streak will be
a record that will not be broken for a long, long time.

I believe Dimaggio's minor league streak was 61 games.

His streak right now is 36 games. He needs 20 more to tie Dimaggio.

Assumptions:
he's a true .310 hitter
He gets on average 4.5 at bats a game

the probability of him getting to 56 (20 more games) is 1.5%

the true odds are probably even lower because of all the pressure he'll be on from the media and himself.
