    I didnt suggest they retire all of them, only the most notable players of the last few decades.
    Even Rice's number 14, despite the fact that he made the Hall, is a number I'm iffy on the Sox decideing to retire. Tim Wakefield shouldn't have his number retired, you don't reward 15 years of mediocrity.
    I think Wakefield gets his number retired, it is the least he could ask for after all we've asked from him. He has done everything asked of him in the most professional manner possible, including signing a lifetime 4 million dollar deal a few years back. Any time a player signs that type of deal, it tells you what the organization thinks about him.
    As much as I love Mo Vaughn, you can't retire his number, he didn't have a long enough career in a Sox uniform.
    The current ownership has changed many former club policies including this one, dont put it completely past them.

    No your having a wet dream, are you for real? Why cant I talk about notable RedSox players and moving forwards in terms of retiring numbers? I am not suggesting any of them get retired, just the possible likelihood some of the most significant players of recent history get retired.

    Pump the brakes little guy.

    I actually agree on Wakefield. He's got to be a pretty classy guy. I think Varitek should as well, he's been the Captain for a while. He's a great leader, and that's all I really care about to be honest.

    Pedro and Ortiz should be locks, though.

    Oh, and btw, the Yankees get more Jerseys retired, basically because they've had a shit ton of legends go through there. They have always had murderers row lineups pretty much. Maybe they retire too many numbers, and before you know it, all of their numbers will be taken, but still, I don't think they literally retire every decent player they've ever had's number.

    And they bent the rules way back when, and threw the most money at, and signed all of the best college players during the 1920's and 1930's (Major League Baseball's first amateur draft was held in June 1965) before the baseball draft and Free Agency came to significance. That tends to get you the best players with numbers to retire :harhar:.

    Re: Retired numbers in the future...

    That's basically my point, that they had more numbers to retire, it's not that they just retire a bunch of guys because they have no honor, but rather that they have, since the beginning of their empire, been able to get the best of the best. It's nothing new, I was just responding to someone who said that the Red Sox don't just retire everyone's number, like the Yankees do.

    oh and SCM..... telling to pump up the breaks?

    this comming from your facebook :

    Marco Scutaro, Adrian Beltre, Mike Cameron, great to see the Redsox improving their bench for this year!!!! OHHHHHH Wait a second, they are all in the starting lineup this season? Looks like I wont be going to any Sox games this year, since they raise the price of tickets every year and sign bullcrap players

    The fact that you know who I am on facebook is kind of scary. Scarier that you take the time to copy and paste something from facebook to here.

    So about those retired numbers.......I'd sure love it if they retired Wakefield's as homage to his tenure, but that's just me.
    WAR is good for something.

    Most teams like to retire their long-tenured guys, who display leadership, a retired number.

    Re: Retired numbers in the future...

    ...clemens went to The Dark Side...in my opinion that disqualifies him in the retired # category......if 24 is retired it should be for Dewey........and i agree..45 should be retired.......I also think they should retire 25 for Tony C....he practically gave his life for the game.... I think retired numbers should be for fan faves and not just for h.o.f/10yrs..........but what they meant to the city and the team
