(Vent) Cycle-Schmycle. This is baseball, not a card game. Woe is the player who goes single-home run-triple-triple. Should have stopped at second.

The cycle is the silliest "stat" in all of baseball.

Sure, cycles are rare, but I see no reason to find them anything more than a minor curiosity. I'd much rather see a guy who needs a double for the cycle stretch to the triple.

If someone hits for the cycle, I'd like to see that in the account of the game, that's all.

(Continuing rant)<p>Omar Vizquel goes 6-of-7 the other night and gets little of the fanfare afforded someone who hits for that phenomenon known as The Cycle.<p>It seems his six hits lacked sufficient "variety."<p>Silly Cycle!

Six hits is a rarity, tied a record. Should have received more attention.
