So Maggs now has 7 consecutive multi-hit games. Is this a record? If not, does anyone know what the multi-hit game record is and who holds it? Thanks...Sox rule.

No idea, but another Magglio question. How long was that shot that made it 5-2 tonight? I'm guessing it was at least 450. Anyone got a number?

I don't know for a fact, but I think I read 13 multi-hit games in a row was the record.

I'll search for it, but I can't guarantee anything. I think 13 is the record, though.

I was at the game, though I was in the pizza line that moved with glacier-like speed when Maggs cranked it out... and I missed it if the HR distance was posted on the scoreboard.

:smile: But it was AWESOME being in enemy territory tonight! Awe Yeah!!!

Looking through the Sox Media guide, they don't have that record listed. However, the single season record for multi-hit games is 62. Set back in 1985 by:
Good ol' #3
:harold

BTW, Maggs had 57 last season, that is tied for third most.

From the trib..
One of his hits was a two-run homer off Royals starter Darrell May that nearly cleared the fountains in left-center field, 435 feet from home plate.

For those registered with the trib here is the link (http://chicagosports.chicagotribune.com/sports/baseball/whitesox/cs-030729soxgamer,1,1690435.story?coll=cs-whitesox-headlines)

I just have to say....

O E O MAGGGGLIO!

I mean this guy is a freak!

What have his splits been since his recent 9 game hitting streak? Something like a .700 AVG I heard. Unreal.

GO SOX!!!

no, you only add the second and third numbers together to find OPS, though 1.234 or whatever us still nothing to complain about.

Does anyone know the record for BA in a 10 game series - these numbers are truly sick. Amazing that right now it is lost in the well deserved news coverage of Valentin's HR barrage last night.

Hawk made some really intriguing observations on Maggs swing. He was talking about how he has been studying his swing and using more top hand and such. Now, I don't know the exact mechanics of what the top-handing involves, but I do notice now that his follow-through is very quick and short and he is kind of recoiling the bat at the end of it. It almost reminds me of a rubberband snapping back after being stretched and let go. I am not explaining it very well, but I do see a difference - does anyone else notice this?

yes, ive noticed. im seeing him twist the bat around where it is straight up after contact. he has kind of a recoil after contact. that shows how well he is seeing the ball.
