Award yourself 10 points if you were able to read through the whole list without stopping to say "who?"

Obviously most of these no-names won't be making the team and actually wearing these numbers, but it's still a little funny to see all those high digits! Sub-40 numbers are a hot commodity at this point in Yankee history - some of these people should be demoted. Give Igawa #493B.

Notice that despite the Yanks' rude decision not to celebrate Torre during the farewell to the old stadium last year and his recent (painfully) brutally honest book, no one was given jersey #6, and Bernie's #51 is also apparently unofficially off-limits. Whether either number will ever be retired is up for argument, but I certainly wouldn't want to wear #6 or #51 if I were joining the team.

That reminds me... I've gotta say that despite all my hatred towards Manny, I liked his choice to wear #99 in LA last year. At this point that's actually way cooler and more memorable than being another 7, 25, 3, etc. Plus, no one can point at you and say "you aren't good enough to wear [insert legendary player name here]'s number!"

Wise move, Manny.

    So that's where Angel Berroa is.

    I would think that #11 would be the hottest commodity. It is the lowest available number left to be claimed by a legend. Some may debate Torres place but have no doubt he deserves to be the last to wear #6.

    Im one who could care less about numbers until the day you retire it comes.

    Im pretty excited about the group of guys going to camp though. Wilkins De La Rosa is a converted POS outfielder turned pitcher that they are sort of re-evaluating hence why he's on the 40.

    Maybe they can put a cardboard cutout of Carl Pavano to make everyone feel at home.

    I'm not sure why you would glorify not knowing prospects. Especially Wilkin De La Rosa, he's on the 40-man roster.

    Read some pinstripes plus once and a while.
