    Yes, I do not care if he passes DiMaggio. My dad HATES the yankees and wants the record broken badly. And, it's kind of in my blood. No offense to yanks fans.

      I'm rooting for Rollins. The excitement the streak will create will draw attention and be good for baseball.

      But it will be a tad unwanted by the stats people. Having to figure out which is the better streak and deserves the honor.

            Well, I'm not rooting against him.

            It would certainly be nice to see him make a real good run at it.

            The NL record isn't too far away.

              Went with other... im a little indifferent about it, I would like Rollins to because I have no problem with him, but I would not like a Phillie to because the city of Philadelphia is a disgrace of a sports city

                  I agree with the first statement, and I think it's good for discussion and argument to figure out which is better...
                  I don't think he'll break it, but I'm sure rooting for him to at least hit in 7 games to make it exciting. I was really worried the other night when he was 0 for 3, with a sacrifice fly before he finally got a hit.

                      If he hits .357, has a 1.083 OPS, only 13 K, 125 RBI and 30 HR, I'd say he'd deserve it.

                          Plain to see some just don't like Joe. As though he voted himself the MVP that year. When Joe is the subject some posters get off the subject at hand, Joe the ball player and how great he was. We have to hear the MVP story, how he was overrated, how he was so distant, so aloof, how he was just not mr nice guy.

                          All side issues, have nothing to do with Joe and the game of baseball and how he played the game.

                            No kidding.
                            As much as I'm rooting for Jimmy, I don't think that he'll be able to hit for that long.
                            You know what?
                            Pitchers can end his streak.
                            IF he's taking his last at-bat and is hitless, the pitchers can just hit him and he's on base and he doesn't get a hit.
                            That would be playing dirty though.

                              I agree with #1
                              and as for #2...well writers and saber guys LOVE to argue...it will be heaven for them trying to prove which one is better and telling everyone why...lol

                              As for MVP...no Jimmy will never win one...he is a slap hitter that can hit doubles and triples...doesn't walk much, because he hates letting a good pitch go by, he wants hits so no homers, no 100 walk seasons...means no MVP
