Nomar June Return?

Postby Ry-Guy » Fri May 07, 2004 1:42 pm

Apparently, Nomar isn't doing too well and now thinks he could return in early June. So that probably means he's out until the All-Star break seeing as how he was originally supposed to be ready a week or 2 after opening day, then it became a month, then 2 months. I hate Nomar! Why did I have to draft my team so early; I would have never picked this pansy.

Reports out of Boston say Nomar's steady diet of Hamm has contributed to his pansiness. I thought he was a pansy from eating all that sausage.

don't you crack that joke every time?


still, very disappointing on the Nomar front, I picked him second round thinking he was going to be out a couple weeks, then bam two days later they said a month

now it's two at least

It never gets old. You being sick of that joke doesn't compare to how sick I am of this tulip sitting out. I'm going to lose my league if he doesn't come back soon, stay healthy the rest of the season, and put up typical Nomar numers. Basically, I'm screwed.

It wouldn't matter how many sausages he eats if he just drank his milk.




Sorry, couldn't help it. !+)

Sounds like you got some bad info. Nomar was in the dugout with the Red Sox tonight after a long workout at Fenway.

From Rotoworld:

Nomar Garciaparra - SS - Red Sox
May. 7 - 10:55 pm et

Nomar Garciaparra, on the DL with Achilles' tendinitis, went through his most extensive workout before Friday's game.
"He took 10 minutes of grounders and then hit off the tee and ran to first base," manager Terry Francona said. "He then ran the bases, took another three minutes of grounders, hit a double, and scored on a (practice) double. He was huffing and puffing, running about 70 to 80 percent. It went well and I think he'll do the same thing (Saturday)." It doesn't sound like Nomar likes the idea of sitting out another three-plus weeks. He still could try to return this month.

Anyone who thinks Garciaparra is soft is a dimwit. In fact, he played the second half last season with a wrist that should have put him on the sidelines. Swinging a bat with a bad wrist is no fun, especially when you don't catch the sweet spot. Running on a bad Achilles is basically impossible.

Injured wrist, bad Achilles' how does this happen? He may not be soft but this guy is a hurt-bag. They give Giffey and J.D. crap for being hurt all the time, Nomar is one more major injury away from being lumped into that injury-prone crowd. It'll probably be a groin pull somewhere down the line.

yeah, he said he felt really good after his workout yesterday, so he finally took live batting practice today. I wouldn't be surprised to see a minor league rehab stint begining next weekend. Right now, I have May 25th circled as the return date :-B

I saw the news about the workout today on Yahoo. Do you really think he'll be back the 25th? I may trade Berkman and Vidro for him, so this really pertains to me.
