There should be a rule...

I think that there should be a rule where no one can speak about anyone's hitting streak until they reach 40 games. The streak would not be interesting until then anyway. I an sick and tired of hearing about someone's 25 game hit streak and people saying he is only 31 games behind Joe D! Who the freak cares? Let it reach 40 games then the race is on.

Lol. :-D
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

FYI

Here are all the hitting streak of at least 39 games:

56 Joe DiMaggio New York Yankees, 1941
44 Willie Keeler Baltimore Orioles, 1897
44 Pete Rose Cincinnati Reds, 1978
42 Bill Dahlen Chicago Cubs, 1894
41 George Sisler St. Louis Browns, 1922
40 Ty Cobb Detroit Tigers, 1911
39 Paul Molitor, Milwaukee Brewers, 1987

Pete Rose's streak came after he got his 3000th hit which is pretty amazing.

How many games did Castillo hit in last year? He used his lack of English as an excuse to not speak to the media (although I think he knew more than he pretended to know). Wise move.
