Robbie Cano keeps #22.

Jaret Wrights surrenders #33 for... Kelly Stinnett?! Shows how much the Yanks think of him, I guess. He is now #34.

Farnsworth is 48. Dotel is 29. Myers is 36. Villone is 47.

Cairo will take 14, Phillips 12. Bubba goes back to 19 and Damon takes over 18.

Now that all that is settled, I am off to buy my Kelly Stinnett jersey. ;)

Why Not?

Wright probably wanted to get rid of 33 since he didn't exactly have a great year...surprised he didn't take his old number (27) and no takers on #17....interesting....maybe they'll be retiring John Flaherty's number this year...

At least you know Stinnett is a short term thing and you'll have a quick turnover and possibly get a good player wearing 33 in the future.

It could be that the organization is not allowing that number to be distributed, kinda like they are doing with the #21.

I thought Wright would wear 27 after Brown left, but I can't blame him if he doesn't want to wear Kevin Brown's number.

I would love to see Eric Duncan be the next Yankee to wear #24 (unless Tino wears it as a member of the coaching staff in '07). It would be fitting, especially since he already shares a birthday with Tino.

I thought that when A-Rod came over, he'd take 33... Or at least 30 (yes it is a very cool number). When he took 13, I said to myself "is he crazy?".... Guess he's not superstitious! He had great season last year! And we are hoping for more.

Jaret Wright should be wearing double zero, representing the factor he should be this year!

Jaret Wright's 2006 Cy Young Season: 23-2, 2.95 ERA. :)

The jersey numbers situation with the Yankees is getting pretty silly. Assuming 2 and 6 (I'm not so sure about 6, but even if Torre doesn't get another ring, 4 WS is hard to argue with) get retired in due time, the Yankees will have no single digits left. That's a bit odd. Many times it has been suggested that the Yanks go to the Toronto Maple Leafs' system of retired numbers and honored numbers (which still can be worn). Question is, whose numbers would you retire, and which would you move down to honored status? It's an incredibly tough call.

Me, just thinking off the top of my head:

1 Billy Martin (Honored)

3 Babe Ruth (Retired)

4 Lou Gehrig (Retired)

5 Joe Dimaggio (Retired)

7 Mickey Mantle (Retired)

8 Yogi Berra/Bill Dickey (Retired)

9 Roger Maris (Honored)

10 Phil Rizzuto (Honored)

15 Thurman Munson (Retired)

16 Whitey Ford (Retired)

23 Don Mattingly (Honored)

32 Elston Howard (Honored)

37 Casey Stengal (Retired)

42 Jackie Robinson/Mariano Rivera :) (Retired)

44 Reggie Jackson (Honored)

49 Ron Guidry (Honored)

Players that have played their entire careers as Yankees, and of course, have had outstanding careers, should be retired. Mattingly and Guidry should have their numbers retired, to me, more than Reggie.

I think it will be an insult to those players who have their #'s retired only to have them re-issued. Can you imagine a bench/roll player wearing one of the honored #'s?

Would have been difficult to give A-Rod #30 since Willie Randolph was wearing it at the time...

Great question that no one has yet to answer...

From my understanding based on the earlier post, honored numbers can still be worn, which I don't know that I agree with it because say the likes of an Andy Phillips requests 23 or 15 or the similar, I mean where is the honor in that. I say retire the numbers, it is a nod to the proud history of the team. I have particular issues because where do you determine honor vs. retire? HOF I was thinking but by suggestions, Scooter was suggested to have an honored number, and while he may not be totally HOF deserving, he was still bestowed that honor. And then you have a guy like Mattingly who was arguably the best and most beloved Yankee of his era, how do you not give him the honor of retiring his number? Maybe at some point something will have to be done, but I think we are still a ways off.

01-29-06, 01:09 AM
What I think they should do is "freeze" numbers for a certain amount of time without actually retiring them. Sort of the way after Tino left (the first time) the Yankees unofficially honored his service by not issuing #24 throughout 2002. Only make it longer, say, 10-15 years. Just look how long it took them to retire Guidry. Which doesn't make much sense. If a player's good/legendary enough to have his number retired, why not do it right away? What changes if you wait several years?

And if it were up to me -- I know we can't "unretire" numbers -- but if it were, I'd "unretire" all but 3, 4, 5, and 7. Give the rest of them plaques or monuments or whatever. But those four are in such a class above anyone else ever to put on the pinstripes, or baseball in general. Maybe retire 37 for Casey, cause it aint every day one man wins 10 pennants (in 12 seasons!) and seven World Series (including five straight). But other than that, not to take away from Yogi and Whitey and Mattingly and the rest, but you let one in, you have to let them all in.

Whats the difference between honoring and retiring?

If we're going with the Toronto Maple Leafs system it means the following: if a player is permenantly incapacitated or if he dies while in your uniform, the number is retired. I believe the two Maple Leafs whose numbers are retired are Ace Bailey (#6) and Bill Barilko (#5). Ace Bailey was disabled in a game and Bill Barilko died in a plane crash.

So under those rules, the Yanks would have retired #4 and #15 I guess and 'honored' everyone else.

When a number is 'honored' it remains in circulationb but if you wear that number you also wear a special Maple Leafs patch that commemorates that player. And honored numbers are raised to the rafters at the Air Canada Center.
