There's a woman in New England who has Rocco Baldelli's old phone number, which she discovered last week when she started getting text messages for the new Twins manager.
At first, it was a fun thing that she kept to herself.
But Thursday morning, she got a text message from former major league outfielder Matt Diaz, who was co-hosting a morning show on Sirius/XM radio. Now, there's some fame to go with the phone number.
