TO ANYONE WHO WATCHED THE YES TELECAST:
Did you notice the announcers say something like, "Everyone is on the fence but Nomar, I wonder why." then I THOUGHT heard something like, "Well I wouldn't think the rest of the team would care, they're probly sayin we'll just win without you."
Now do not take my word because I wasn't completely listening but I thought I heard somebody say something like this and I looked up and saw Nomar alone on the bench. Anyone else hear something like this?
I wasn't listening closely, so I missed it. I here them say many times that Nomar hadn't moved from his seat and every time they zoomed in on him, he looked sad.
Francona was interviewed on NESN after the game and he talked about it.
In the 8th Nomar said he could go in for Crespo at short but then a little later in the inning Nomar told Francona he couldn't get loose (I'm guessing he couldn't get his ankle loose). So Francona decided to keep him on the bench...
