to 33 games.

I cant remember how many did Rollins have last year/this year?

Does anyone think 56 is actually possible?

Didn't Luis Castillo get up to 35 or 36 a few years ago?

Castillo got to 35 in 2002. Rollins had 36 that wrapped around from last season to this one.

It was 38 games total... Rollins got to 36 in the last game of last season, extending to 38 after getting hits in his first two games this year.

I say he won't get to 56. He still has a long way to go to get it.

I think this is easily one of the hardest records in all of sports to break. I'd like to see it fall.

I wouldn't. Keep it with DiMaggio unless a Sox player breaks it.

Records were made to be broken... I'd also like to see it fall, regardless who made it to game 57. :cool:

Do you know how huge it would be if somebody broke DiMaggio's hit streak record? It would be HUGE!!! That's putting it lightly too. Utley has a good long one going, but he hasn't even gotten to 40 games or Pete Rose's National League record. There are two reasons why I think the record won't be broken for a LONG, LONG time:

Pressure (this record is a long standing and cherished record)
Pitchers will eventually quit pitching to the guy trying to break the record.

wow that is a pretty BOLD thing to say, i thought he was a lock.

Someone may one day break it, it'll be cool to see if he cracks 40.

38 -- the final 36 games of last season, plus the first two games of this season

The media attention is already pretty high, I can't imagine being able to push everything out of your mind for almost 3 and a half more weeks.

Does anyone think 56 is actually possible?Possible, yes. Probable, no. Then again, his team is out of contention, so his streak may be the only thing on his mind from here on out. Still, it is not an easy task in the least.

So, my answer is I have no clue. :redneck

I think it is. I'd like to see it fall, primarily because I can't stand DiMaggio. He was quite the **** in life. Pompous beyond belief. To bad Marilyn dumped his ass because he was way to possessive. Even his brother and son couldn't stand the SOB.

If he gets over 40, the baseball world will stop and revolve solely around Utley. I remember when Rose had his 44-gamer; the coverage was absolutely intense then, and I can only imagine it being much worse now. That pressure alone would crush anybody; and he still needs to hit in 23 more just to tie.

I've always maintained the hitting streak record is the most unattainable in baseball.

I'd say it's second behind Cy Young's record for wins. No one will come within 100 wins of his record.

Not trying to be a jerk (well, no more than usual), and I agree Young's record will be very, very difficult to beat, but, in fact (http://www.baseball-reference.com/leaders/W_career.shtml), Walter Johnson came within 100 wins of it . . .

No one will break alot of the records out there. Like 2 grand slams in 1 inning. And within 100 wins is NOT very close.

Ah, from now instead of from the end of Young's career, I assume . . .

Spahn might have had a shot of coming within 100 if his career hadn't been sidetracked by WWII . . .

Yea. It's just not possible to even reach 400 these days given the 5 man rotation. Five hundred wins is just unfathomable in today's game.

Yeah, from that point of view it's kind of funny to see Spahn (a great pitcher, to be sure) listed in some places as the pitcher with the most wins in the "modern" era . . . I wouldn't consider him "pre-modern," but, like you said, the rotations just won't allow what he did . . . I'm guessing 30 wins won't come along again for a while, either . . .

By the way, Utley is 0-4 today, though he should have at least one more at bat today to continue the streak.

that's what i thought. they kept changing it! it was driving me crazy - fielder's choice, hit, pick one people! :tongue:

Nonetheless, I'm extraordinarily happy for Chase...let's keep it going!

Im glad he got the second hit because all you would have heard about while the streak goes on was "was that first hit really a hit?". At least now there is no chance for controversey what-so-ever.

Damn, that sucks, as a PA resident I get plenty of Phillies, and Chase is a good guy.

I would have never thought that when I saw Paul Molitor get his 39th hit in a row that I wouldn't see a long streak again, maybe I was just a dumb kid...

None other than Manos, playing second base for the Mets, made a nice back-handed play to his right on a sharply hit grounder up the middle, to throw out Utely at 1B... while I was rooting for Utely, it's good to see Jose's glove & throwing arm NOT being spring-loaded.
