I don't think it will ever be done again.

The scary thing is that Joe went on to have a 16 game hit streak after the 56 game streak ended.

Of course it can be beaten.

But sadly, Reyes hasn't a chance. He's Waaaaaaay too inconsistent. Someone like Pierre has a shot also IMO......

I got a '41 Yankee ball signed by the team after they won the WS. The year Joe hit in 56 straight. Some great players; Lefty Gomez, Chase Red Ruffing, Bill Dickey, Phil Rizutto...
Really cool ball but unfortunately I am a Red Sox fan. :-?
Can't see that record broken though.

Well, if he ages right, consistency comes with experience. Not that I think he'll be able to do it, but it's an interesting idea... :-?

Great point about Jose Reyes. I live in New York and I can see this guy's potential. Once he learns the strike zone he can be the best hitter in the game with his world class speed and hand eye coordination. Since the All Star break Jose is hitting .354 with a 7/4 K/BB ratio and 11/2 SB/CS ratio. I think in his prime he'll get .370 130 15 65 70- think Rickey Henderson with less walks.
[b]Bold Predictions:[/b]

Grady Sizemore will have more value than Jason Bay regardless of draft position

Aramis Ramirez in 155 G will hit over .300 40 HR 110 RBIs

Brian McCann will have more value than Jorge Posada regardless of draft position

Far from unbreakable, especially compared to Cy Youngs most losses record. I mean, no one on a pace for over 300 losses is going to stay in the majors :-b . This record just requires a major, major hot streak. Its going to be hard but far from impossible.

I like your thinking, although I disagree that Reyes has no shot (see DK's post). But a guy like Pierre who doesn't strike out that much, puts the ball in play, hits for average, and has great speed could certainly do it. But I think it would take a better hitter than Pierre himself, of course, with a HEALTHY dose of luck.

Tony Gwynn seemed the a guy to break it, though, and he never had a hitting streak over 20-25 games, I believe.
