    It's an homage to Jimmie Foxx... Contrary to what many baseball fans (especially in Boston) believe, it is possible to be a Yankee fan and also have a higher appreciation for the game and its history.

      Thank you. You are pointing out what in my opinion is a true fan. You swear allegiance to one team, but are a baseball fan first.
      Before I get nasty posts I am not trying to say that anyone else here is not a true fan. I am just giving my definition.

      Welcome back ARod. Hope you are a Yankee forever.

          Mick is my favorite, too. I was there when he hit his 500th on my 10th birthday. (God , it has been a while since I mentioned that.). I would say that Carl Yastriemski would rank in my top 5 , though. it shows respect for baseball greatness to look at players regardless of what team they played for.
          Back to the Red Sox and Foxx, how many people associate Garvey with the Padres? But the Pads have retired his number, while the Dodgers haven't.

            It's like Aaron and Fingers with the Brewers. I think some of these expansion teams were desperate to create tradition

            Also, thanks for point out my slip with the Oakland A's and Foxx and Grove. That was just a mistake - I meant to say that I think of them as Athletics, first and foremost, regardless of where the Athletics call home. Now if only someone would remind that A's that some truly magnificent players graced that franchise. I'd also like to see them bring back the elephant.

              Foxx is a much closer comparison.
              I'm writing a letter to henry telling him to retire foxx's number. Anyone want to back me up?

                I support it...but ler Loretta keep it. After Loretta leaves the Sox, that's it. Remmeber that when the Bruins retired #7 for Phil Esposito, Espo himself said that Ray Bourque could continue to wear the number. Bourque surprised evrybody with his #77 jersey. Doubt Loretta will change to, let's say #66, but it would be interesting to see how Loretta would handle it.

                  Good luck to you. Foxx deserves to be remembered by some team, though Red Sox wouldn't be my first choice.

                    I think he probably should be remembered by both teams.
                    This is an interesting conversation the week Foxx's single season team HR record is broken.

                        1) He seemed to take an inordinate amount of time to recover from his injury.

                        2) His sitting on the bench while the rest of his teamates were on the railing as the Red Sox and Yankees battled in that great extra innings game (the game where Jeter dove into the stands).
                        A little off topic opinion. Nomar was the Red Sox. If he didn't want something done..then it didn't happen. Once he was traded, the chemistry came back and you all know what happened. I have a feeling that Manny is becoming Boston's next Nomar.

                          Except that Manny was our WS MVP. I'll take that!

                          on a side note, remember that "no more nomar" song.... I wonder if FOX ever got my mail bomb.

                              Don't the Red Sox have pretty strict rules on retiring numbers? Like a player has to retire as a member of the Red Sox or something? Foxx played for the Cubs and Phillies after the Red Sox.

                                They bent the rules to retire #27 for Fisk. Using the same critera, they should retire #43 for The Eck (he works for NESN..Sox own some of NESN, right?).

                                RETIRE #25 FOR TONY C AND #6 FOR PESKY & PETROCELLI AS WELL!
