Ryan is with 30 -- I didn't want to list anyone twice. Lot's of great players have used more than one number, so I just went with the one I thought was "most used." Purely subjective.

I’ll preface by stating again that I’m a life-long Dodger fan :( . And I believe Barry Bonds is a big fat cheater- however, I would still put him with number 25. Especially if McGwire is listed for 25.

To go along with Garvey’s #6; Davey Lopes- 15, Bill Russell- 18, Ron Cey-10 And how could you forget Kenny Landreaux at 44 :lol:

Mitch Williams and Turk Wendell wore 99 as well. Neither would be considered great but if I believe they are the only two to wear 99 prior to Manny.

57. K-Rod or Santana
47. Glavine or Jack Morris
51. Ichiro or Big Unit
52 Sabathia
53 Abreu
54 Gossage or Lidge
58 Papelbon
72 Fisk
75 Zito
88 Albert Belle

It's not the number on the back of his uni that makes a difference to Manny, it's the number on the front of his checks!

Thanks for putting Pudge in with 27 and not 72
