The Hanley Ramirez RBI streak a record setter

Sure, Hanley Ramirez broke the Marlins team record for consecutive games with at least one RBI, but yesterday he did more than just add to his total:  He set the new record for NL shortstops.  

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Ramirez is the first National League shortstop to have a string of 10 straight games with an RBI. The research goes back to 1920, the first year the RBI became an official statistic.

The record doesn't belong to Ernie Banks, Joe Morgan, Robin Yount or even Arky Vaughan, it belongs to Hanley Ramirez.  And that is pretty impressive.
