Williams, DiMaggio, Choo? Behind the numbers of Shin-Soo Choo's on-base streak with the Rangers

For most of baseball history, the on-base streak has been overshadowed by the hitting streak.Joe DiMaggio's 56-game hitting streak in 1941 appears on any list of unapproachable numbers. Ted Williams' 84-game on-base streak in 1949 never gets a call.The hitting streak was seen as more difficult to achieve because there is only one way to keep it going. The hit was valued more than the walk.That has begun to change in the last generation, with on-base percentage and the walks that come with it becoming more significant.Not everyone is in agreement. When Washington's Jayson Werth had a streak...

All Over But the Booing: Jayson Werth Retires

All Over But the Booing: Jayson Werth Retires

A player meets a fanbase, both prone to taking things personally Through a long and strange baseball career that ended last week after 21 professional seasons, Jayson Werth was always a weird hybrid of top dog and underdog. He was a third-generation MLB player, selected in the first round straight out of high school, who ultimately signed a $126 million contract. He was also a scrap-heap pickup who found friction with fans, teammates, journalists and others, and seemed to take special joy in tormenting his former employers. None more so than the Phillies, with whom Werth emerged as a star...

HS 197: Jayson Werth deserves to be on the Phillies Wall of Fame

On Hittin’ Season Episode 197, host John Stolnis explores the controversial legacy of Jayson Werth. Since leaving Philadelphia, Jayson Werth’s relationship with the city’s fanbase has been complicated. One could even say there was some mutual loathing between the two. Some fans simply, and irrationally, hated Jayson Werth for leaving Philadelphia as a free agent following the 2010 season, when he signed a 7-year, $125 million deal with the Phils’ division rivals, the Washington Nationals. It didn’t have to be this way. As much as I love Phillies fans and the passion with which...
