A few days ago, newly acquired outfielder Aaron Hicks announced that he will be wearing number 31 for the Yankees. Now this may not seem like a big deal, but I'm sure some of you have heard that 31 was the number worn by Greg Bird last season. So a big mystery presented itself after Hicks' revelation; some might even call it the biggest question of the Yankees' off-season. What number will Greg Bird, a player who likely won't make the Opening Day roster, wear? Well the question was answered yesterday.

Song of the Day
Hooked on a Feeling by Blue Swede
It's 70's Love week on Pinstripe Alley. Today's song might be familiar to Marvel Cinematic Universe fans as Starlord had this song as part of his Awesome Mix Vol. 1. But that's probably not where you heard it originally, as it's kind of a classic and probably have heard it many places. I'm partial to the David Hasselhoff version. As always, please link us your song of the day.
Feel free to use this as your open thread for the day. Ooga-chaka, ooga ooga.
