Garciaparra re-signs with Cubs

Nomar is still a top SS, probably #2, but I have to admit that his downward trends haven't been too appealing to me fantasy wise. Nonetheless, fine job by the Cubbies in acquiring him.

Although the Sosa deal most likely won't happen, their are rumors that the Cubs are still willing to take Floyd from the Mets with the Mets paying a portion of his salary.

Wonder if he wishes he hadn't turned down the 60 mil offer the Sox gave him a while ago ;-7

1. Patterson (CF)
2. Garciaparra (SS)
3. Sosa (RF)
4. D. Lee (1B)
5. A. Ramirez (3B)
6. ??? (LF)
7. T. Walker? (2B)
8. Barrett (C)
9. Pitcher (P)

So who is going to play LF since Alou is outta here? Will theye really deal Sosa for Floyd???
I'd flip Sosa and ARAM. If Walker is signed it wouldn't surprise me if it went like this either.

1. Patterson (CF)
2. Walker (2B)
3. Garciaparra (SS)
4. A. Ramirez (3B)
5. D. Lee (1B)
6. Sosa (RF)
7. LF
8. Barrett (C)
9. Pitcher (P)

Nice signing by the Cubs. ;-D
As a Cardinal's fan I like it too cause if Nomar only got $8 mil, Renteria should be right around there.

Is anyone else taking this as Nomar saying that he knows he is worth more money than $8/year, but realizes that he needs to prove himself (and his health) this year? I think he just realized that he is not going to get much more money or years than this, so he decided to take the 1 year deal and hopes to play well, make everyone forget about last season, and then sign a big multi-year deal next year.

I like the move by Nomar, and it could be good for his fantasy value if he's that motivated.

uh, slomo, but yeah, that's exactly what he's doing. Am I missing something? (Why is this a novel idea?)

Nomar's value dropped because of injuries. The speculation all offseason was that he was going to take a one year deal to reaffirm himself as a superstar, then get big money. I bet he excells in Chicago and does just that. ;-D
