    That's crazy. I can't remember by own cell phone number half the time, but I can instantly recall Rob F. Bell's jersey with the Reds.

    I think Rob Bell wore a single digit, don't remember which one, and I'm not sure it was when he was a Red.

    As BluegrassRedleg said, Rob Bell wore #29 with the Reds. However, he wore #6 with the Rangers. After he was traded to Texas, Bell asked the Rangers equipment manager for the lowest number available (thinking that since he was a pitcher, he would get a number in the teens or twenties). However, the lowest number available was #6, so that was what was assigned to him. I don't think he was too thrilled about it.

    Pitchers who wore single-digit numbers (off the top of my head):
    Atlee Hammaker, Giants -- #7
    Matt Young, Mariners -- #1
    Jeff Juden, Indians -- #7
    Rob Bell, Rangers -- #6
    Wayne Gomes, Giants -- #2
    Josh Towers, Blue Jays -- #7
    Kyle Drabek, Blue Jays -- #4

    I always thought Daniel Ray Herrera should have worn a single-digit number with the Reds. (#52 was way to big a number for him, and I believe #2 and #9 were available at the time.) He would have looked like a jockey.

    Wow. Atlee Hammaker flashback. It's been a long time since I've seen or heard that name. Had a few real good years with the Giants if my memory is correct.

    He was lit up in an all star game one season. That was my best recollection of him.
    Danny Ray Herrara should have worn 00. Would have been perfect for him.

    With Danny Ray would the uniform have been large enough for two 0's to fit?

    Good point. Maybe a lone zero would be better.

    David Wells wore #3 for a while with the Red Sox, he wanted to with the Yankees, but, d'uh.

    Atlee Hammaker wore #14 with San Francisco until Vida Blue rejoined the Giants in the mid-80's. Hammaker gave Vida his old number back and took #7 as his new number.

    Lived in the BA then, got my NL fix via the Giants, after almost 30 years I realize I have fond memories of that team in that era... Only Reds and only Giants seasons with 100 losses within 3 seasons.

    Watching Phillies/Cubs, Philly looks WORSE than the Cubs.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Pats 14-Texans 9 at halftime, in case anyone's looking for something completely insane to watch.
