LaTroy Switches to #22; Amnesty For Cheats
LaTroy Hawins was wearing #21 to honor Roberto Clemente, not just to piss of Jesse, apparently. He's switching to #22. And in a tiny side item in USA Today, I find out that Bud Selig has guaranteed amnesty and no punishment for anyone named in the Mitchell Report. Because of course if you find out someone has been breaking federal law and besmirching the game, the last thing you should do is punish them. This was the right decision since most fans don't care and certainly the players don't care and people who actually don't want the game filled with cheats are a tiny minority.
