I think most current Yankees fans expect to see uniform numbers 51, 42, 2, and 6 be retired for New York someday. And, a large subset of those fans would probably be O.K. with seeing # 21 retired as well. (Yeah, I know baseball retired # 42 already – but, I’m talking about in honor of Mo Rivera.)
But, what about # 20?
When he’s done in New York, there will probably be a strong case to be made that Jorge Posada was the 3rd greatest offensive catcher in Yankees history – behind Berra and Dickey and just ahead of Munson and Howard.
Berra, Dickey, Munson and Howard all have their numbers retired by the Yankees – albeit that Munson and Howard were special cases.
Does it not make sense that # 20 should be retired someday as well?
