It's 12-12-12. Do You Know Your Cubs No. 12's?

David Banks

Why not do a post about 12's? It's that kind of day.

There isn't much Cubs news today, nor are there many rumors. So here's a somewhat silly post about every player who has ever worn No. 12 for the Cubs, from BCBer kaseyi's cubsbythenumbers.com:

Charlie Root (1932), Mark Koenig (1933), Bob O'Farrell (1934), Jim Weaver (1934), Lon Warneke (1935-36), Ken O'Dea (1937-38), Gus Mancuso (1939), Rip Russell (194O-42), Johnny Hudson (1941), Billy Holm (1943), Chico Hernandez (1943), Roy Easterwood (1944), Dewey Williams (1944-45, 1947), Lou Stringer (1946), Cal McLish (1949), Mickey Owen (195O-51), Bob Usher (1952), Tommy Brown (1952-53), Chris Kitsos (1954), Ed Winceniak (1956-57), Bobby Morgan (1957-58), Dick Johnson (1958), Jim Marshall (1959), Dick Gernert (196O), Nelson Mathews (196O), Mel Roach (1961), Len Gabrielson (1964-65), John Boccabella (1966-68), Gene Oliver (1968-69), J. C. Martin (197O-72), Andre Thornton (1973-76), Jerry Tabb (1976), Bobby Darwin (1977), Rudy Meoli (1978), Steve Macko (1979-8O), Carmelo Martinez (1983), Davey Lopes (1984), Shawon Dunston (1985-95, 1997), Leo Gomez (1996), Mickey Morandini (1998-99), Ricky Gutierrez (2OOO-O1), Angel Echevarria (2OO2), Dusty Baker (manager, 2OO3-O6), Alfonso Soriano (2OO7-12)

An interesting run of Cubs history, and a number of players we are all quite familiar with. I thought I'd take this opportunity, too, for a bit of shameless self-promotion: Kasey and I would be thrilled if you don't already have "Cubs By The Numbers" and want your own copy. You can order one at this link.

And yes, I chose the posting time of this post deliberately. (Central time, of course.)
