Rollins' Streak Ends At 39. Great Job.
Jimmy Rollins' streak is over, but sincere congratulations go out to him for a job well done. There will be no controversy that a two season hitting streak is a valid one. For the record, I think that what he accomplished, having a whole off-season between at-bats, is much tougher than a single season mark. Hey Jimmy, doesn't this look good in print?
Longest hit streaks since Joe DiMaggio's 56-gamer in 1941
44 Pete Rose 1978
39 Paul Molitor 1987
38 Jimmy Rollins 2005-06
Jimmy, number three is nothing to hang your head about. A standing ovation to you from this corner!
