Why he might be annoying
He charged for autographs.
He missed making a large dollar bonus from Heinz 57 if his streak went to 57.
He made money shilling Mr. Coffee and Bowery Saving Bank.
He was shy.
He and Marilyn Monroe divorced after 274 days of marriage (October 5, 1954).
Why he might not be annoying
His 56 consecutive-game hitting streak is considered the greatest baseball feat of all time (1941). It is rare that anyone has a streak half as long.
He was named baseball's greatest living player in Baseball's 1969 Centennial Celebration.
Asteroid #3767 is named in his honor.
He was considered the most graceful player of all time.
Although divorced from Marilyn Monroe for eight years, he paid for her entire funeral and burial, so it would be dignified and not a hollywood circus.
In the song 'Mrs. Robinson,' Simon and Garfunkel ask 'Where Have You Gone, Joe DiMaggio?' which was indicative of a lose of innocence and naivety.
