Don't Buy That #65 Jersey Just Yet

After originally stating that he would keep his #65 this season, Phil Hughes has had a change of heart. He revealed his intentions on his website, though he hasn't selected (been given) a new number just yet.

Our suggestion? #19 to follow in the footsteps of previous successful Yankees hurlers, Bob Turley, Dick Tidrow, and Dave Righetti.

  1. I think Hughes prefers numbers that end in 5.

    5 - Joe DiMaggio
    15 - Thurman Munson
    25 - Jason Giambi (next year, Phil!)
    35 - Mike Mussina (ditto)
    45 - the greatest Italian-American Yankee of all time, Carl Pavano
    55 - Hideki Matsui
    65 - Phil Hughes

    Maybe he'll just take 50?
