I'm sure that he wants to "create his own identity" and "not try to fill anyone's shoes" but I really think that the coolest thing Tony Sanchez could do for the fans is wear #12. For a city that is working class and bummed about all the old players leaving, could there be an easier way to win fans than saying "hey, you paid good money for those jerseys and now theyre worthless...not anymore! You now own a Tony Sanchez jersey" He'd be a hit, everyone would break out their old #12's and he'd be everywhere.
Also can all agree that Erik Kratz's nickname should be Kratz Davis? Old slugging minor league catcher who can't quite make it to the majors?
