Wes Helms gets his old number

It took a few days and who knows what else, but Wes Helms will once again be in his old number.

After wearing No. 39 for two games, Wes Helms is back to 18. That number belonged to hitting coach Jim Presley, who also gave Helms the number when he first signed with the Marlins before the 2006 season.

"He's one of my hitters," Presley said. "Yeah, a pitcher, he wouldn't get it."…

Uh, actually Jim, he is one of your guys who just swings a bat since he has yet to hit anything at this point.

But then again, one at bat is a pretty small sample size.
