        Records are made to be broken and I for one love to see a deserving player reach a new level of play in their sport.

        Jimmy Rollins will never be the talent of Pete Rose or Joe DiMaggio but his hard work and ability deserve to be shown in the same light even for just 15 minutes.

          I root for any streak that gets to 30 because its fun to follow and if someone eventually breaks it then I will watch it and be able to say I watched it, since I wern't alive to see DiMaggios.

          Just a note to all the active members of BBF, I consider all of you the smartest baseball people I have ever communicated with and love everyday I am on here. Thank you all!

              I root for all records that don't involve homers to be broken, because, with homers, there's always the whole steroid issue, is he taking it, is he not taking it. I like records that are about batting average and hit streaks and RBIs because then it's more skill and less strength.

                  At least he got it out of the way quick!

                    Of course. I won't be all torn up if he doesn't break the record, obviously, but it would be cool to watch.

                    However, a huge part of me has no desire to argue whether or not a two-season streak is worthy even though it is arguably a lot more impressive.

                      hit it were they ain't

                      Don't forget the National League Record. He has to break that before he can touch Joe D's record. This is what's great about baseball; something like this, you can follow everyday...

                        I'll be rooting against him this weekend (he's playing the Dodgers at home).

                        And if he does get to 56 (or somewhere close), it would be as big a debate as to whether or not 60 HR in a 154-game season is better than hitting 61 in 162 games.

                          That's pretty much my take on it too... I've always respected Rollins' work ethic and how he gets the most out of the abilities he has, even though he's not an Albert Pujols or an Andruw Jones. And then there's the added benefit of seeing a record broken that's been held by a Yankee. I'm always up for that!

                          On the other hand, I'm hoping for a freak season-ending injury for a certain left fielder from the west coast, followed by photographic evidence of steroid use and a Pete Rose-style lifetime ban (as opposed to the Steve Howe version of the lifetime ban, where he was still pitching 7 years after said lifetime suspension).

                            Hey, just one minute there! I'm a born & raised Philadelphian, would go to 80% of Phils home games a season throughout the '80s, so MUST say to you:

                            Um, would that be the Phils ownership since late 1981? Fans booing their own players out of the park? Or both?
                            :o

                            I'd be hoping he does it. Because I could go to Vegas and bet the house, the car & the dog on the Phillies organization finding a way to make him an ex-Phil before long. Or, at least, making news all winter trying to.

                            (Phillies ownership & ways = just too predictable).

                              Didn't Eagles fans cheer when an opposing player broke his leg or something? They're pretty brutal in your neck of the woods. Schmitty's probably still seeing a therapist because of them
