MLB 2K12 Serial Number Generator: Is It Safe and Legal?
"I didn't know the exact number, but I knew it was low," Hendricks said of his pitch count. "Also, Willy and I did a really good job of recognizing how aggressive they were early, even to start the game. So, once we made good pitches within the first two of the at-bat, they kind of kept being aggressive and we just were able to take advantage."

"Our guys are pretty sharp mentally right now. That's really what's controlling all this," Maddon said. "There's a feel. Analytically speaking, it's hard to describe and you cannot put numbers on it. It's a feel and it exists. There's another dimension out there, brother."
The Louisiana Legislature late last week sent Gov. Bobby Jindal a bill to increase jail time for people possessing or selling firearms with obliterated serial numbers. By a 36-0 vote, the Senate approved House Bill 4 by Rep. Joseph Lopinto III, R-Metairie, to upgrade the crime from a misdemeanor to a felony. The bill cleared the House on May 3 by a vote of 92-0.
NHL.com writers and editors have cast their votes, each selecting his or her top three for each number, with the top vote-getter receiving three points, second place receiving two points and third place receiving one point.
Fun fact: Gretzky idolized Gordie Howe, who wore No. 9, but when he arrived to play with Sault Ste. Marie of the Ontario Hockey League in 1977, that number was already taken by center Brian Gualazzi. Not long after, his coach suggested wearing No. 99. The Oilers retired his No. 99 on Oct. 1, 1999, and the Kings followed suit on Oct. 9, 2002, although it had already been retired League-wide on Feb. 7, 2000.
The skinny: No. 95 is likely to become a popular number in Nashville after Duchene signed a seven-year contract with the Predators as an unrestricted free agent on July 1, 2019. The center has scored at least 20 goals seven times in his 11 NHL seasons, including a career-high 31 in 2018-19.
Analysis: "There was consideration for Aleksey Morozov, who wore the number for 451 NHL games with the Pittsburgh Penguins. But Duchene's worn it since 2017 and still has some great years ahead of him, so he gets the nod." -- Tracey Myers, NHL.com staff writer
Fun fact: Gilmour wore No. 18 and No. 9 with the Blues, and No. 39 with the Flames (No. 9 was taken by Lanny McDonald), but he flipped the digits after arriving in Toronto and wore that number for the rest of his NHL career.
Analysis: "Perhaps there's some recency bias here, but while O'Reilly and Joe Juneau's career numbers are roughly equivalent (572 points in 828 games for Juneau), I gave O'Reilly the nod for helping to lead the Blues to the Stanley Cup last season, for his Conn Smythe win, and for his leadership and defensive prowess." -- Amalie Benjamin, NHL.com staff writer
Analysis: "It's impossible to fully comprehend the impact that Alex Mogilny has had, but his number goes a long way in explaining it. In his fourth NHL season, he scored 76 goals, tying Teemu Selanne for the NHL lead, the first time a European had led the League in goals." -- Shawn P. Roarke, NHL.com Senior Director of Editorial
Fun fact: Crosby's number is based on his birthday (Aug. 7, 1987). He wore it with Rimouski of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League before being selected by the Penguins with the No. 1 pick in the 2005 NHL Draft.
Analysis: "Sidney Crosby wasn't the first NHL player to wear 87 -- that was Donald Brashear in 2002 -- but he was the first one whose play and accomplishments turned it into a signature number, one that kids and fans put on their jerseys to honor their favorite player." -- William Douglas, NHL.com staff writer
Analysis: "In addition to scoring the most goals (313), assists (260) and points (573) of anyone to wear the number, Klima also helped the Edmonton Oilers win the Stanley Cup in 1990." -- David Satriano, NHL.com staff writer
