Some number stuff...
Jake Fox is going to be 7
Kouzmanoff is 5
Since Sheets has taken over 15, Ryan Sweeney will wear 21
Aaron Miles is listed as 16
Crisp will wear 4
Chris Carter is listed as 22. Definitely not the number I'd pick for him, but whatever works. 22 STILL reminds me of Byrnes.
Anyway, some of these are interesting. 21 seems to fit Sweeney. I'm not surprised that Sheets got 15 from him.
Crisp in 4 is interesting; he's always worn 10, but that's Barton's number in Oakland. I wonder if Crisp asked Barton about 10, or just decided it was time for a new number?
Fox wore 5 in his time in Chicago last year...does anyone know if he was listed as 5 before we traded for Kouzmanoff?
Aaron MIles has apparently always worn 12. Mike Gallego wears 12 for the A's. You'd think the player could get his number from the coach if he really wanted to.
If you were picking a number for Chris Carter to wear that isn't currently taken by a player or coach or retired, which number would you pick? I'd probably have to go with 23 or 44.
