    Hey Cheryl,

    Ryan Zimmerman’s hit streak halted at 30 games last night. As one streak ends, another is admired. Read about how Joe DiMaggio forever redefined ’56,’ and how his feat may never be broken. It is a record that thankfully cannot be broken through steroid use, and represents all that was once right in a game that has since gone so wrong.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Cheryl,

    My name is Ken Armer, I'm the NHL section's community coordinator and I wanted to congratulate you on the great work you do on the Washington Capitals on Bleacher Report. I've been hoping someone would begin covering this talented team and you give them the coverage they deserve.

    Keep up the fantastic work and if you have any questions or concerns drop me a line on my profile or email me at

    No problem on the edits Cheryl. B/R generally prefers action shots to logos, so I just picked one that looked good.

    I'm excited about Wakamatsu. Apparently the Mariners didn't consider anyone who had been a manager before—they wanted someone new to help completely change the direction of the team. I'm happy about that!
