Just read that the Japanese JJ Putz (I should learn his name, the new
guy) will be wearing number 18.

Kinda surprised they didn't offer 17 or heck why not 41?

I know this is a common sentiment, but really, if you're not going to retire it, please use it. At least it implies a decision (and thereby thought) was made, and even though many of us don't agree, it's better than them just bumbling along cluelessly. After all, you never know who's gonna stick and become a star. It likely won't be Iggy (who I'll learn how to spell when it becomes relevant), but then again you never know.

I don't get the problem with Ryota Igarashi's uniform number assignment. Since Darryl Strawberry left, 13 different players and one manager wore it.

Aside from Bret Saberhagen and Moises Alou, none of them had particularly impressive major league resumes when they got the number.

The Mets are not going to retire the uniform numbers of all the stars from 1986, so it's best that they issue them.

Also, the whole "Japanese JJ Putz" thing is getting old.
