An 11-game winning streak, including three over the Oakland A's, was not enough to diminish the loss of the most lamented DFA player in franchise history.

Danny Valencia batted .269/.303/.437 with 9 home runs and 48 runs batted in during a glorious span of 338 plate appearances in the 2014 and 2015 seasons.

Useless trivia, Valencia wore #15 last season before switching to #23 this season. However, he'll always be #1 in our hearts.
