Baseball Toaster was unplugged on February 4, 2009.
Albert Pujols sat out tonight's game with the flu and he may miss more soon when he serves his suspension. So his hit streak is on hold at 30 games.
I have read and heard that he is the 38th to record a 30-game streak in baseball history. However, I have found 40. Here they are listed by number of games and chronologically:
Note that the longest break between 30-game streaks is 19 years (1950-69). Also, the most in a 5-year stretch are 6 (1997-2002 or 1998-2003 breaking five in 1893-97/1894-98).
