Why is Taveras wearing number three?

Because he's the third best right fielder in our platoon there.

Because Flores' career was ended by a foul ball off his shoulder.

That's what I was wondering.

In the little booklets they hand out at the games Flores was on the roster as #26.  Maybe Flores gave his number up because Taveras had seniority?

Or Kearns was wearing his number all along?

Flores changed numbers because he now considers #3 to be bad luck.

I would have said yesterday morning that he should wear number 2, but he gets a 1 week free pass from me.

Because the Mets thought he was the new Babe Ruth?

I'm pretty sure he was #26.  We need to reference that "Nats by the Numbers" blog.

I think he wore both while he was here.

Doyle was right.  Kearns wore #25 the entire time he was here, so I was wrong.

Lots of players have worn #26 according to Nats by the Numbers.

Does Jesus Flores even exist anymore? I'm pretty sure he's actually dead and that his body simply refuses to cease functioning.

Ladson tweeted today that Flores has been cleared to begin a throwing program and part of that will include swinging a bat.

Don't worry. He'll rupture a tendon or something soon enough and head back to his comfortable spot on the 60 day DL.
