Is a uniform number change imminent for Alex Rodriguez?

There seems to be some superstitious folks working at the Footlocker at Roosevelt Field Mall in Long Island, NY. Pictured above is a photo snapped this past weekend by an intrepid photo-journalist friend of mine, showing A-Rod's "new" number 12 for sale*.

What better way to start anew now that his conscience has been cleared of his past PED abuse? Anyone who believes in mystique and aura knows that #13 is terrible luck.

I'm sure Cody Ransom won't mind trading numbers with him. Even if he does, A-Rod's salary was 60 times Ransom's in 2008, so I'm sure A-Rod can make it worth his while.

*I am aware that Pudge Rodriguez was #12 for the Yankees last year, and that is why this jersey is being sold at Footlocker. That being said, it is still full-price and it is currently being merchandised with A-Rod stuff at the store.

Talk about it in the Stadium Insider Forums!

#13 was Jim Leyritz's number and he had plenty of luck with it. And look, he's not wearing it anymore and the dude is in jail.

Oh, I guess you awkwardly missed the disclaimer at the bottom of the post, huh bro?
