NYDN: Todd Frazier hopes to talk to Paul O’Neill about wearing No. 21 with Yankees

Still too soon?

The last guy who wore “The Warrior’s” old number got booed.

Now, Todd Frazier wants his shot at wearing Paul O’Neill’s No. 21.

“I was a big Paul O’Neill fan (growing up), that’s why I wear the No. 21,” said Frazier, who also reportedly grew up rooting for the Red Sox at the same time. “Hopefully I can talk to him, and maybe I can get the number before I get home.”

LaTroy Hawkins briefly wore No. 21 in 2008 before getting booed by Yankees fans and switching to No. 22. No. 21 is not retired by the Yankees.

LaTroy Hawkins says Tommy Kahnle “one of the worst teammates I’ve ever had in my life.”

Former major league reliever LaTroy Hawkins pitched for a lot of teams, two of which were the Twins and Rockies. As it happened, the Twins were in town to visit the Rockies. Hawkins, now a member of the Twins’ broadcast team, told a story on air about he and former teammate Tommy Kahnle got into a fight back in 2014 when the latter was a rookie. Hawkins’ partner, Dick Bremer, tried to create a way for him to sugarcoat what he said, but Hawkins didn’t bite, calling Kahnle “one of the worst teammates I’ve ever had in my life.”
