  1. Garza can switch to #22, but that number will always be Billy Buckner for me.

      Yeah. I think there’s a good number of Cubs fans who share the same feeling.
      However, I also think a good number of Cubs fans remember No.22 as Prior’s uni.
      Funny enough, Buckner’s the one who had better luck wearing good ‘ol #22!
