i've wondered about this for a long time, but why do numbers hang down lower than letters in some news stories?

here's a link to a sports story for an example.

Here is what I found. Aesthetic or artistic seems to be the most basic reasons.

I work with numbers a lot.

3,4,5,7 and 9 all have a larger ball-sac than 1,2,6 and 8.

Especially #2. I think he is a eunuch.
