My book! $9 for paperback, $3 for eBook/kindle.
What do Mets numbers 8, 17, 24 and 31 have in common with 7 and 57?
Bench coach Bob Geren is still listed as No. 7, so Jose Reyes & Ed Kranepool fans shouldn't get too excited. Likewise, Tim Teufel still is listed for No. 18, so that's still in circulation.
Out of respect for his major league career, the no-hitter and September 2008, I think it's fitting to keep No. 57 out of circulation until somebody actually asks for it.
Nos. 8, 17, 24 & 31 are the only ones that seem to be unofficially retired on a semi-permanent basis.
No. 7 of course represents both the longest tenured Met and the greatest SS in team history....not that they'll retire it (would have eventually pre "the Plan," sadly).
Also, Jose Valverde still needs a number, so I'm thinking 57 looks likely. Unless Brown gives up 47 and takes 30
