Hawkins changes his number

It's being reported everywhere that LaTroy Hawkins has changed his number from No. 21 to No. 22. This will certainly appease the idiots that booed him for wearing Paul O'Neill's sacred number.

Hawkins wasn't trying to annoy people by wearing No. 21. He was honoring Roberto Clemente by wearing his old number. However, there were people at Opening Day who decided to boo him during player introductions.

You boo people for poor performances on the field. He has a 9.00 ERA and gave up six earned runs in one game. That's perfectly "booable." The fact that he is trying to honor a baseball legend is not.

I just hope there isn't a contingent of Roger Clemens' loyalists out there who are now miffed at Hawkins for wearing No. 22.

He should wear number 69.

I had been wondering why Cano didn't take back 22 after last season.

Cano likes 24, he says, because it's the inverse of 42, Jackie Robinson's number, and he was named after Jackie Robinson, as Michael Kay tells us ever 3 or 4 days.

Worst run-on sentence ever.
