The pics on whitesox.com show Gucci wearing 7. Who should get priority for the # - Timo or Gucci?

How about 77?

Timo could go back to 6, which he wore with the Mets. He may get a nice Rolex out of it.:tongue:

You guys are seriously going to call him "Gucci"?

Maybe I'm in the minority, but ewwww. I think it should have just come naturally, like we usually end up using Hawk's nicknames, not creating our own. Sorry, had to get that out. :(:

Guys, dont buy your Iguchi jerseys yet. He just got into the country today, and didnt have time to negotiate with Timo for the number. Obviously they arent going to give him a taken number for the press conference. Come opening day, I bet 7 is on his back.

Plus, Timo has been in the Dominican Republic for a couple of Months. He lives there during the offseason, and is playing Winter ball. Who knows if he even had time to discuss a number switch?

I'd like to find an Iguchi jersey when he was still with the Daiei Hawks, now that would be cool.

I would like an Iguchi jersey, Frank Thomas is the only number one Ihave and I am due for one.

I bet Timo does not give up the number.

So do I...it's a lot better than "Gucci", but spelled Iggy.

The roster on the official page has him listed as #23. They also have Tadahito #15.

We are reduced to talking about uniform numbers. Let's start talking White Sox baseball, not uniform numbers.:wink:

Well I guarentee he won't be wearing #4. Apart from that the Sox retired Luke Appling's number, no Japanese would wear 4.

Yeah, I found that same site a few minutes after I made my last post. They seem to be pretty resonably priced.

Personally, I like "The Guch" (pronounced like "Gooch", Arnold Jackson's arch-nemesis on Different Strokes). But I also agree that whatever Hawk decides to call him is going to stick.

I'm going to get me one of those, now. They seem to be cheaper because they are made of mesh. But I like a lot.

You're right. On a related note, am I in the minority here? I never liked Frank's nick name "Big Hurt". I like him. I like him being referred to as "Big Frank", but "Big Hurt" just keeps reminding me of a movie from the 1980's.

NOW that would be cool....seeing Sox fans wearing his hometown jersey at the games! THAT'S CLASSY, truly.

My Hunch says Tadahito "trades" with Timo for #7 too ......... Interesting to see how this plays out.
Why does every new Sox player get #8, #12 when they start with us ??

I seem to remember a quote from Thomas a number of years ago where he was complaining about the "Big Hurt" nickname. It seems he preferred his college nickname, "The Hammer", but by the time he made it to the big leagues, that one was taken by Dan Pasqua. DAN PASQUA!!?? THE HAMMER!!?? Does anybody else remember this?

I have been trying to find a Timo jersey from the Hiroshima Carp for a very long time. As soon as I find that, I'm buying it. I might buy an Iguchi one too, but I really want Timo.

:(: Sorry, I never saw this until today.
I hadn't heard that, or that Pasqua was referred to as "the hammer." I always thouht that nick name was kind of reserved for Hank Aarron. Now calling Frnak the Sledgehammer or Big Sledge, that would've worked for me. Probably a little late in the career for a change, though.
