Wothless baseball trivia

I posted a reply a long long time ago to a baseball thread (I thought it was the long-dead Baseball Trivia thread but I just looked through the whole thing and didn't find it) asking if anyone know about some player who asked for a lot of a certain number in his contract. I clicked on a link from Page 2 of ESPN.com and came across the answer to my question! Since no one at the time of my post knew what I was talking about, I felt like it was my duty to bring it back...even though I'm fairly sure I'm the only one who remembers my bringing it up in the first place.

"Turk Wendell wore No. 13 with the Cubs. When the relief pitcher and certified flake joined the Mets, second baseman Edgardo Alfonzo wore it. So Wendell switched to No. 99. Two years later, in 1999, Wendell signed a one-year contract for $1,200,000.99 (are we seeing a trend here?) with the potential for three bonuses of $4,999. "I want as many 99s in my contract as possible," Wendell said then."

Thank you for letting me get that off my chest.

That guy was a nutjob. He wore that crazy sharktooth necklace when he pitched too. Well, at least be colorful if you're going to suck.
