Being Nomar--a feature on the (departing?) Boston star

My personal thought is that Nomar would look great in an Angels uniform. Eckstein is wearing out his welcome by his poor offensive play over the past couple years.

I can also say that most Red Sox fans did not want Arod. The piece of the trade I loved the most was Mags coming over, but I also didn't want to give up Nomar for him.

He gave his blood and sweat for this team and the fans and this is the thanks he gets?


That sums it all up. Thats why i dont get when people get upset when a player jumps for a better offer. Its bussiness man, I love nomar, i really like the way he plays. Id love to have him in a Braves uniform :-D . But Alex Rodriguez while being an ass for lobbying for a fellow player´s job, is a better player and it wouldve been great bussiness for the Red Sox to land him. Its cruel to Nomar but im pretty sure that after the season is over he will take care of himself first as he should

I think people get upset when players jump for a better offer b/c it shouldn't be JUST about the money. It shouldn't be "just business." It should be about the team, and the city, and the fans. Baseball shouldn't just be a way to get rich. The players should play the game because they love it, and want to win, not to get a check at the end of the day.

I think next year the Wanks will have Jeter at 2B, Arod at SS and Nomar at 3B. 8-o I'm just joking but I think I'll vomit if that happens.

I don't like to jump to conclusions...but can you imagine if the Yankees get Nomar and Beltran?

C Posada
1B Giambi
2B Jeter
SS Arod
3B Nomar
LF Matsui
CF Beltran
RF Sheffield


Are you kidding me? There isn't a single easy out in that lineup...Matsui or Jeter would probably be considered the worst, but I mean, c'mon they are still potential all-stars.

I agree with the previous post about puking.

I know plenty of Red Sox fans who were estatic through the whole A-Rod ordeal. They couldn't wait. I felt bad for Nomar all along. I couldn't believe the Red Sox treated him like that. I could never see the Yankees doing that to Jeter and if they did, I'd seriously be extremely mad. The first though that crossed my mind when I realized Nomar would be a free agent after this season was that he'd come to New York and play second base.

I still hope he does. Not only to screw with the Red Sox, but he has consistently been one of my favorite players, even though I bleed pinstripe blue. Personally I think he'll end up with the Dodgers, though.

First, I thought if the Yankees got A-Rod and screwed the Sox then Boston would go insane. However, if Nomar came to town then I think Boston would just collapse. And I love it. :-D

BTW, great read Trans. ;-D

LOL. or the Mutts might add him to the ever-growing collection of underperforming, oft-injured middle-infielders...
