Rob Bradford reported today that Takashi Saito will wear number 24 this upcoming season. We all know who was the last Red Sox player to wear that number, and apparently Saito contacted Said Former User of 24 and got his blessing to wear it.
I've asked this question a thousand times, so here goes number 1,001: When will the Sox give out number 21? If they are cool with giving out 24 so soon after Manny Ramirez wore it, and are fine with giving Rocco Baldelli number 5, when will see somebody with 21?
Are they waiting for the Texas Con Man to be wearing an orange jump suit and sitting in a place with striped sunlight before they do it?
