Some teams have numbers that should be retired.
The Red Sox should hang up #26 for Wade Boggs.
The Yankees should take #54 out of circulation for Rich Gossage.
The Mets blew a chance to honor Gary Carter before he died.
The Astros should honor J. R. Richard before it is too late.
In my latest article for Bleacher Report, I list the 10 numbers that I think should be retired right now. And there are two specific examples that I give that might be controversial, but I think I found a way around the drama.
