What Wearing His Number Says About You

When you make the decision to wear a player’s number, you’re honoring that player, but you’re also telling the world that you identify with that player on some level. At the time of this writing, I’ve never seen a person don #2 other than Lopez himself, but I expect that to change in the coming months. If I were to see a person wearing a Lopez jersey at this point, I would assume one of two things: 1) that the person felt rebellious, under-appreciated, and particularly educated in the back-stories of the Reds’ players, or 2) that the person hated Aurilia and just wanted to make a point.
