If at First You Don't Anger Enough Yankees Fans, Try, Try Again
Wednesday, April 16, 2008
When LaTroy Hawkins chose #21 for his jersey this year, he thought he was honoring Roberto Clemento's memory. To Yanks fans, though, #21 is reserved not for the Hall of Famer but for the curly-locked Paul O'Neill, who last wore the number for the team. Little did poor LaTroy realize he'd be called out for wearing the Permed Prince's jersey, forced to listen to chants/heckles of PAUL O'NEILL! PAUL O'NEILL! as he jogged from the 'pen to the mound in Yankee Stadium. Not surprisingly, the heat from the fans eventually got under LTH's skin and it was confirmed yesterday that he's decided to stop wearing the number...

...and start wearing Roger Clemens' #22.

Yup, that should shut them up.

    LaTroy Hawkins definitely didn't deserve the treatment he got. He has definitely had a couple of bad outings, but to be booed on Opening Day was unnecessary. I think it made Yankee fans look classless.

    This really annoyed me. I love Paul O'Neil as much as any Yankee fan, but let's be honest. Paulie was a good player, but not GREAT. His career average was only .280 or so, and his arm was less then stellar. O'Neil will always be up there with some of my favorite Yankees, but I really don't think his number deserves to be retired. Retired numbers should be based on skill and stats, not based on how much the fans love you.

    In a related vein, I think Roberto Clemente's number (21) should be retired across the entire league.
