“In a row?”
Trot Nixon, 37th No. 6 in Mets history, and fourth this year, tying its own record from 2004 for the most times issued in a single season and extending 6’s dominance as the most frequently issued Mets jersey.
But based on pure velocity of the turnover, 2008 has been the sixiest season in Mets history. Consider that in 2004, 6 hadn’t been issed for the third time by time Nixon slipped on his new outfit. Chris Aguila was optioned back to AAA to make room for Nixon, illustrating the missed opportunity of handing him 6 as well.
I’d like to wish all you fathers out there a happy birthday. The Mets gave me a double header to accompany installation of a new bathroom vanity. This could be a very long day.
