Spider, was it you who referred to Werth's steak as a mini streak last night? If so, I still would like to know when it graduates from mini to medium.

10

I forget who it was, but some announcer said a few years back that its not a hitting streak worth following until it gets to 10.  I pretty much feel the same way.  Once you get around 20, then it becomes really exciting.

I nominate 10.  Seems like a good round number.

I support the 10 mark.

My bad mbeane. I thought I had answered your question. Once he gets to 12 games I will consider dropping the mini. When hitting streaks reach 20 games I start considering them impressive. But I don't take them seriously until they reach 30 games. Of course that's just my mindfact.  :lol:

Looks like pizza tonight for me. Darn. I was kind of in a burger mood for some reason.

You very well may have, I was flipping back and forth between Nats/Caps/WNFF.NET. Be advised, I am way too lazy to go back and look at a previous days' thread to actually seek an answer you very well may have provided. I just can't be bothered to click that much, and then add in all that readin'? I just much prefer to ask again. In summation, I am really, really lazy.

Damn. Gio gave that a poke.

Love National League ball, see no reason for the DH.
