The Number Of The Beast

A comment today on this post reminded me that I hadn't checked for a while whether Coco Crisp had been assigned a number. Since the Sox played their first Spring Training game yesterday, I should have guessed that he had, but my head has been too full of work crap and other diversions for me to notice.

So, I'm pleased to report that Coco is no longer the man with no name number - he will be wearing #12 (his - if you will - cereal number).

All we have to do now is wait for the merchandising machine to spring into action. Watch this space for more details.
