Do you know why Gerald Laird switched to number 15 in 2006? Sports Illustrated (Me and My Number; July 24, 2006; Page 41) had the following story: "The guys have given me a nickname," the light-hitting backstop says with a chuckle. "One-five stands for One Man, Five Tools." The tools refer to a baseball scout's indices (ability to hit, hit with power, run, throw and field), and with just seven career stolen bases in parts of four seasons, Laird knows he's not quite all that. He used to wear number 6, an upside-down tribute, he says, to Ted Williams's 9, but it was snagged from him when outfielder Brad Wilkerson came over in a trade before last season. "No negotiation, he just took it," Laird says. "But 15 fits me good."
