2009 Opening Day 32s

Well, Carlos Muniz didn't make the Mets' Opening Day roster, but I have no doubt he'll be back sometime during the season--after, he did five separate stints with the club last year. With no #32 currently on the Mets, it's time cast my net all across the MLB and see what washes up.

Atlanta Braves: Derek Lowe, Starting Pitcher
Baltimore Orioles: Jamie Walker, Relief Pitcher
Chicago White Sox: Brian Anderson, Outfielder
Cincinnati Reds: Jay Bruce, Outfielder
Colorado Rockies: Glendon Rusch, Pitcher
Kansas City Royals: Ron Mahay, Relief Pitcher
Minnesota Twins: Brian Buscher, Third Baseman
Oakland Athletics: Jack Cust, DH-Outfielder
San Diego Padres: Chris Young, Starting Pitcher
Seattle Mariners: Rob Johnson, Catcher
Texas Rangers: Josh Hamilton, Outfielder
Toronto Blue Jays: Roy Halladay, Starting Pitcher

My conclusion? Major League Baseball needs more 32s, especially in the infield. It's also got its fair share of starpower (Cy Young winner Halladay, Silver Slugger winner Hamilton, Minor League Player of the Year Bruce, and All-Stars Lowe and Young). Yays.
