The following is a complete list of every baseball player to ever lead the league in on-base percentage 4 times in a row:

  • Rogers Hornsby
  • Lou Gehrig
  • Ted Williams
  • Wade Boggs
  • Barry Bonds
  • Joey Votto

Can we just stop. Please. Just stop. Phillips got on it about OBP again. I’m sure others are following. That list has 4 Hall of Famers, Barry Bonds, and Joey Votto.

Joey Votto is a great baseball player. Period.
