yeah, im sure Nomar was gonna tank the season with free agency looming over the winter
boston tried to to get A-rod to spite the yankees, and in doing so, they spit in Nomar's face. i dont blame him for doing what he did. The Boston media is notoriously ruthless and Nomar was sick of it. i dont blame the guy for wanting out of boston. he may have put the sox in a bad trading position, but what he did was no more classless than their blatant disregard for him during the A-Rod dealings.
Wow, your not making any sense...did you remember that he was offered an extension and turned it down??? I think it was 60 million over 4 years?...what the hell is wrong with that? If he had excepted it then we wouldn't even be discussing this. I don't see anything wrong with going after the best player in baseball (man I hate to say that) because your star player turned down a very fair offer.
wow, just becuase the guy turns down extention doesnt give a team the right to make such a big deal about the A-rod dealings. his own freaking teammate (kevin millar) went on ESPN live in prime time and openly said he'd prefer to have A-rod over nomar. Nomar was completely alienated from that team and he had every right to screw them over in return.
figures that all the nomar "haters" would emerge from red sox nation after he leaves. that's the diference between sox fans and yank fans. we cheer our returning players for their accomplshments(wells, soriano) if nomar visits boston next year, he'll get a standing boo from the fenway crowd.
Hey tlef, nice avatar. Where's the Randy Johnson one? Oh that's right, he's still in Arizona and NOT a Yankee. And neither is Beltran.
i knew RJ would never be a yankee(no prospects) and beltran still has a very good chance of becoming a yankee this winter. why dont you make yourself a nice doug mientkiewicz or dave roberts avatar? im sure they will have a huge impact down the stretch
i hope theo and the rest of the redsox management have fun playing golf in october after oakland or anaheim beat them out for the WC
Dude it's amazing to me that you can disappear for stretches at a time and then come back and talk so much noise.
If I wanted to have a Doug M. or Roberts avatar, it would make sense and be fine. Why? Because they're actually on the team. Beltran isn't a Yankee. Period. The future is the future but right now, in this little thing we're living in now which is called the present, he's an Astro. Not a Yankee.
You would think you'd learn something from rmeesig before you spout off arrogant guarantees.
give it up. epstein made a horrible deal and now boston is piling on nomar in an effort to try to downplay how badly the cubbies fleeced the sox.
Give what up? I don't recall anyone saying Theo made a good move there and no one has supported it. The fact is he made the best of a bad situation and got what he could. If the team gave up on Nomar, Nomar equally gave up on the team.
The Sox have faults and holes, sure. But so do the Yankees. Good luck with that aging, injured rotation
Oh and feel free to keep coming with the guarantees because I'll be the first one to bring them back up when they turn out to be wrong.
