I know that Major League Baseball is desperate for another feel-good event to get over the all-our-players-use-steroids rap that was dropped in their lap by a government desperate for their own distraction and an opportunity to look effective dealing with something. But just as Tiger Woods didn't win a Grand Slam when he won four consecutive majors over two years, Jimmy Rollins has a one-game hitting streak, not thirty-seven.
A pitcher relief pitcher can't throw nine perfect innings over three games and call that a perfect game. A fielder can't get one guy out at the end of the third and the first out of the fourth and call that a double play. A hitter can't knock in two runs his first time up and two runs his second time up and call that a grand slam.
It's a great thing Rollins has going, this multi-season hit streak. But talking about breaking DiMaggio's record now is ridiculous and nothing but a marketing gimmick for MLB.
