According to Yankees color commentator Suzyn Waldman Yankee 22-year old prospect Clint Frazier asked if the team would un-retire #7 for him. After being asked by ESPN the Yankees GM Brian Cashman said that it was not true.
Considering that Waldman has been covering the Yankees since 1987 you would think that she can figure out truth from rumor when it comes to the inner workings of the team so I am apt to believe her on this one. It may not have been an official request by Frazier but I am willing to bet somewhere along the line the kid asked the club house manager or someone connected to uniform assignments.
Oh man Mickey is having a hell of a month.
