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
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.
