Numbers, numbers, numbers

One of the great things about blog interaction is that it often leads me to post information I would otherwise ignore. This is a prime example.

I was never one to care about jersey numbers — truth be told, I still don’t pay much attention to them — but I’ve gotten several emails wondering what numbers the new guys will be wearing. I don’t know how many of these will carry into the regular season, but here are the numbers for the new Yankees in spring training.

Most of the minor leaguers are given extremely high numbers — No. 98 Colin Curtis is the highest — but those numbers rarely carry into the season. Of all the guys on minor league contracts, the lowest number went to catcher Mike Rivera, who landed No. 12.
