Garciaparra next year?

If Nomar finishes the year strong (.315/.360/.500) and shows no lingering effects from his injury no way he will get anything less then 8 mill for another season.

He's an elite middle of the order hitter, playing one of the hardest positions to get any offense from.

either he gets a 5 yr contract in the 10-12 million range, or comes back for one more season at around the same pay to go for the 5 yr 60+ million dollar contract

As much as I love Nomar, he is too old to get a contract of that length. Nobody wants to pay a 37yo shortstop 10 Million dollars.

I want some of whatever you're smoking man. Nomar is no longer an "elite" middle of the order hitter, and I can think of a bunch of guys who play SS who I'd rather have. Let's see: Tejada, Young, Peralta, Crosby, Lopez, Furcal, Rollins, Reyes... Not all of them could be considered "middle of the order hitters," but I don't think Nomar's worth anywhere near Tejada money. You're crazy.

Theres no way Im touching Nomar next year, this year he was on my don't draft list and he will also be on it next year. Hes done for in his career IMO. Personally I bleieve he was on the juice and this is just his roid withdrawl now but I won't get into that. Theres so many better options than him and so much better value out there at the shortstop position then wasting possibly a top 10 round pick on him which Im sure lots of people will do.

since they already have a couple great middle of the order hitters; d.lee and ramirez, they should go out and sign furcal
that way they get a young, above average SS and a lead-off hitter

He's only going to be able to sign for a small contract. He hasn't proved anything the last 2 years and doesn't deserve any amount of big money.

True, but with the opinion he has of himself (his agent too), do you think he'll sign for a low salary?

Eventually he'll have no choice.

i could see him signing for 2 yrs $11 million in washington and that's about it for any NL team...i believe he will end up back in the AL ...the cubs cannot go w/an IF up the middle of twalker and nomar...prior would have to K 12 per game

i agree... i think furcal is a much better fit for the cubs then nomar is... but if nomar gets a 5 million a year deal, i think he better take it,,, i cant see a lot of big time deals out there for a man who has played limited games the last 2 years.....
