Poll: Should Fernando Valenzuela's No. 34 be retired by the Dodgers?

March 30, 2011 |  3:57 pm

In his story on Fernando Valenzuela, Times Dodgers writer Dylan Hernandez mentions that the team has not given out Valenzuela's number, 34, since he left the Dodgers in 1991. Manny Ramirez asked for it when the Dodgers acquired him, and clubhouse manager Mitch Poole told him no, perhaps the greatest contribution Poole has ever made to the Dodgers.

So should the Dodgers go ahead and make it official and retire Valenzuela's number?
