MLB Number 58 - Jonathan Papelbon

Jonathan Papelbon, the Boston Red Sox closer, is the best MLB athlete to ever wear the jersey number 58. Why? Well, let's take a look at some of Papelbon's stats through his first five years with the Red Sox.

In his first five years in the league, Papelbon has racked up 151 saves. This takes into account the fact that Papelbon had a grand total of zero saves in his rookie season. Once it was settled that Papelbon would be a closer (he started three games in his rookie year), it was lights out from then on.

In 298 career innings pitched through his first five seasons, he has whiffed 346 batters. That's a ridiculous innings pitched to strikeout ratio.

His career ERA, through the '09 season is a minuscule 1.84. In Papelbon's first full season in the pen, he put up a sub-1 ERA of 0.92.
