    No brainer for me. 56 game hit streak. IMO will never be beaten.

    56 is a stastical anomoly.

    Technical point but Ruth only had 659 Yankee HRs, 49 were with the Sox and 6 with the Braves.

    I think I'd still go Ruth.

    I know you only copied the data, but Babe Ruth did not hit 714 HR for the Yankees. he hit 659 HR for the Yankees. So if you consider Jeter's 3080 hits to be the Yankee record for this poll, then Ruth's HR total should be 659.

    What about Carl Pavano's days on the DL for a 4 year multi-million dollar contract record?
    Whatever you think...
    Well, you're wrong.

    Both should be included in the poll.

    Pavano's is greater as he just got to relax for four years. Kei still has to work and on top of that, he needs to endure crappy bus rides and stay at crummy hotels on the road.

    Even though Ripken beat it, Gehrig's streak is still the franchise-defining record for me. The manner in which it was broken is like a wound that has faded into memory but never healed.

    Kei put up one of the finest seasons in Yankee AAA history IIRC.

    DiMaggio, it's an MLB record that still stands after 70 years. No one's ever really gotten close.

    Dan Uggla hitting .179 at the start of his streak reached 30ish. Someone will break the odd ball record at some point.

    He got to 30 and was just over half way there. I dunno man, I don't see it being broken.

    Yeah a guy hitting a buck seventy got half way there. I'm hoping someone breaks the record at 57 games going 57 for 260 in the process.

    I don't think so.
    Players today have trouble PLAYING in 56 straight games.
    This is unlike other records, like 72 homers in a season or what I like to call "Totals Records".
    It takes 56 days to tie this record. Whether you get 6 hits in a day or one - it still only counts towards the record as 1....

    I'll try to remember that next time 10 heads in a row come up on series of coin flips.

    But 44 is still 12 away from tying -- almost two more straight weeks getting a hit every day.

    it seems close, but it's 21.4% away. An equivalent is hitting 57 HR when the record is 73. Or winning 401 games when the record is 511.

    Or nearly the difference between 601 saves and 478 saves (2nd and 3rd).

    How come no one is listed Lou Gehrig's 23 grand slams? That record is even older than DiMaggio's
