Hitting Streaks

James McOwen of the California league has a 45 game hitting streak
Does this mean he will be a great player, I think it is obvious that hitting streak is a curse
Not one of these guys ever did anything, Especially if they play in California
Whatever became of that Joe DiMaggio guy anyway.

To prove my point here is the list of the top Hitting streaks in Minor League History
