With all of the talk about #21 and who is wearing it, who should not wear it and should it be retired, I figured I would look into where Paulie fits in with the other retired numbers.
With the Yankees, O'Neill has:
1254 Games Played, 27th all time, 10 "retirees" have more.
4700 At Bats, 26th, 10 "retirees" have more.
720 Runs Scored, 24th, 8 "retirees" have more.
1426 Hits, 20th, 9 "retirees" have more.
304 Doubles, 14th, 7 "retirees" have more.
185 Home Runs, 15th, 8 "retirees" have more.
858 RBI, 13th, 7 "retirees" have more.
.303 Avg, 11th, 5 "retirees" are better.
Here is a quick note: None of the retirees above O'Neill are named "Jackson".
If the Yankees retire #21, fine. If they don't, thats fine too. I'm not going to boo a guy for wearing a certain number.
To me, it's just a number.
See the car in the background? It's my 2007 Mustang Premium GT/California Special and its FOR SALE.
