Our evident goof came by way of what I took to be an eyewitness account of the actual stitching of Reynolds’ jersey, as reported last night by MLB.com’s Joe Trezza:
However this official release this afternoon says Reynolds will be wearing No. 56, so insead of joining the exclusive if unattractive fraternity of Jon Rauch and Scott Schoeneweis, Reynolds inherits the tradition of Brian McRae, Scott Rice, Andres Torres, Dyar Miller and a bunch of coaches and brief visitors in No. 56.
I’ll be at Citifield recycling batteries tonight and will get the dope with my own two eyes.
