Joe DiMaggio lost his hitting streak at 56 games.

Orel Hershiser went 59 innings without allowing a run before he was beat.

Cal Ripken appeared in 2,632 games before finally taking a seat.

I'm thinking I'm somewhere around 2,500 days....

What am I talking about? I'm talking about the length of time that it's been since I took a personal vacation of more than three days. That's right, it's been seven years since I've just checked out. That streak is going down this week.

I'll be out of touch for the next week as I'll be in Hawaii and then San Diego. Yes, there will be sun, surf and plenty of fruity drinks with umbrellas.

I'll see what I can do to answer questions over the next week, but I can't promise I'll be able to get to any of them.

Good luck until then. I'll be back June 24th full-time ready to give you all the help I can on your journey to a 2013 fantasy baseball championship.
