While the official list of non-roster invitees doesn’t reflect the latest news, PeteAbe notes that Morgan Ensberg will get the long-dormant number 21. I always thought the Yanks would retire O’Neill’s number, and Mike and I wonder if Ensberg would hear boos for daring to wear it. The only numbers not assigned to players in camp this year are 6, 51, 69, 98 and 99. Two of those are sure to be retired, and one is just plain funny.
