Is pre 2004 Nomar Back?

Postby spacehamster01 » Thu Jun 01, 2006 11:54 pm

I've been so surprised with Nomar's incredible play of late. There is no denying the fact that he will be an injury risk but c'mon, this guy has been playing phenomenal. He is now playing first base, has only made one error and while playing at first will seemingly be less of an injury risk. Through 35 games he has:

6 Hrs, 36 RBI and is hitting .360

Now I may be a bit optimistic but I expect him to end up around:
20 Hrs, 100 RBI while Hitting .320

What do you guys think of Nomar for the rest of the year?

Well assuming he stays healthy you could see something close to his days with the Red Sox.

I don't think many question his ability if he's healthy. If he stays healthy I see no reason he can't get the stats suggested above.

This being the operative phrase ;-)

Of course, I'm very happy. I drafted him in one league and picked him up from off waivers(!) in another.

he is.

I hope he gets injured then I'll feel less stupid about taking peralta and furcal over him and letting him stay on the FA wire
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

All the injuries he's had are a shame, besides being a great player who's not been out in the field enuf to show it, he's also a pretty cool dude. I met him once and didn't get the arrogant vibes that you often get when you meet a top level pro athlete or Hollywood bigshot.... He's like a regular guy who just happens to be a great baseball player.

Playing first sure helps, as you make fewer body-risking plays... But I also think he's changed his training routine, and is laying off the weights and focussed more on stretching and having as flexible a body as possible.

ohh yeah.

I grew up watching him and it seemed like he ALWAYS swung at the 1st pitch and popped up...but in reality he hit like .350 on the 1st pitch.
