So Long, Jose Guillen's 21-Game Hit Streak

Jose Guillen was sporting a 21-game hitting streak heading into Monday's battle with the White Sox.

A walk, three outs and no hits ended his chances of tying Brian McRae for the fifth best hitting streak in Royals franchise history.

Guillen has been frustrated at times because the streak has drawn light on all the singles he's hitting. He's had blister problems, which have limited his power.

So what's next for Guillen? Put on another streak and brace yourself for the MLB trade deadline.
