It’s the Magic Number

29In an attempt to add more offense the Mets on Thursday recalled Robinson Cancel, the chubby hero of a few of 2008’s most inspiring victories, and designated Elmer Dessens for assignment.

Strangely, the Mets issued Cancel No. 29, even though the No. 40 he’d worn most recently was available (he’d worn 40 after first receiving 4, then seeing the Mets re-issue that number toArgenis Reyes. Cancel however wore 4 again this spring only to see the Mets issue that number twice this year (to Wilson Valdez and now Angel Berroa).

At any rate, No. 29 grants Cancel entry into the exclusive Three-Number Club whose membership is listed below. As for Dessens, he didn’t pitch so badly while not buried in the pen, and so barely had an impact other than having become the team’s first ever No. 64.

I had a short panic attack the other day worried that Omar Minaya would attempt to rehabilitate his mangled image by making a large and unnecessary trade at the deadline for Roy Halladay (32 is available, you know) but that’s mostly subsided. How about an actual hitter though?
