    Barring an injury or massive slump, Jose Altuve should reach 200+ hits and 40+ doubles for the fourth consecutive year. I just noticed this this morning. I'm too lazy to do the research so maybe one of you stat nerds have a quick way of finding out the following:

    When was the last time this was accomplished?
    What other players previously accomplished it?
    What is the all time record for consecutive seasons with 200+ hits and 40+ doubles?

    Okay, I looked up[ one guy: Wade Boggs. He did it five years in a row from 85 to 89.

    I don't think there have been too many players who have had four consecutive 200 hit seasons, let alone 200/40. Ichiro had 8 or 9 consecutive 200 hit seasons in a row but he was not a doubles guy.

    Damn

    I thought of Mattingly right away because he was a doubles machine, but he only did it 3 years in a row, but look how close to doing it 6 years in a row

    207 44
    211 48
    238 53

    186 38
    186 37
    191 37

    Hornsby be it four times in five years. Lloyd Warner did it three straight years. Haven't found no one else yet. I just went down the all time career hits list and clicked the link to the players I thought were candidates. I got down to around 2850 career hits. I'm beginning to think Boggs is the only guy who has ever done it until Altuve gets there next month.

    Mattingly would have had a tremendous career if his back had cooperated.

    No doubt about that......His only postseason series, when he was broken down against Seattle in 95, he was awesome, guy gutted it out when he had nothing left

    I figured Cano did it, but he fell short. He had five consecutive seasons with 40+ doubles, but only two of them had 200+ hits (he had 188, 196 and 190 in the other three seasons).

    Nomar wasn't far off from 97-00.

    1997: 209 hits, 44 doubles
    1998: 195 hits, 37 doubles
    1999: 190 hits, 42 doubles
    2000: 197 hits, 51 doubles

    he did miss some time in 98-00 with a few DL stints.

    I guess Ichiro hit a lot less doubles than I thought. Never got over 34 his rookie year.

    Only three seasons with 30+ doubles. He was not much of a power hitter (116 home runs, .091 ISO)

    Yeah I just figured with his speed and contact ability that he would've had a few 40 double seasons.

    Cabrera has only done it once. He had 3 straight of 40, but only got 200 hits in 2012.

    From what I can tell, only Boggs has done it 4 times. Here's the list of guys who have done it 3 straight:

    Jose Altuve: 2014-2016
    Don Mattingly: 1984-1986
    Joe Medwick: 1935-1937
    Paul Waner: 1927-1929
    Rogers Hornsby: 1920-1922

    Charlie Gehringer is interesting because he did it in consecutive seasons 3 times.
