Player Projection: Jimmy Rollins

The big question that will follow Jimmy Rollins into the 2006 season is his 36 game hitting streak. How far can it go? Will he get anywhere near Joe DiMaggio's 56 game hitting streak?

He was never the kind of guy that you figured would put together a huge hitting streak, because he hadn't truly learned how to get on base and seemed more interested in looking for a long ball than a simple base hit. Now though, Rollins has seen the light and it's a bright spotlight that will shine on him throughout the season...
