This is wrong at SO many levels

Nomaaaaah, Nomaaaaah, Nomaaaaah, we hardly knew ye:

Los Angeles also is one of four teams interested in signing Nomar Garciaparra, whose agent also has spoken with the Cleveland Indians, Houston Astros and New York Yankees. Garciaparra, coming off two injury-shortened seasons, is willing to play any position other than pitcher or catcher. New York manager Joe Torre already has spoken with him

``Nomar had a good conversation with Joe Torre this week,'' agent Arn Tellem said in an e-mail to The Associated Press. ``The Yankees are one of four teams that Nomar is considering. We are in the process of reviewing the options and we hope to make a decision in the near future.''

Hopefully Mia will knock some sense into him.

Can you just imagine an infield with A-Rod, Jeter, and Nomaaaaaah at 3rd, short, and second?

Sure---and the Yanks still win @95 games and lose in the first round of the playoffs.

Maybe Big Boss George will hire that Sawx groundskeeper who beat the crap out of that Yankee in the bullpen just to prove he's the KING of Sawx sloppy seconds.

Nomah is not going to knock A-Rod from 3d to 2d. Nor dislodge Jeter. The scuttlebut is that he'd spell Jason at first (though Giambi hits better when he plays the field), as well as the outfield. Still, I see no reason to grab him when the Yanks need a real CFer and bullpen help. And a catcher for the future.

Georgie is getting so senile that he thinks this is going to aggravate Sox fans. I will help him sign the papers and watch Nomar add that special something to that already fantastic Yankee’s clubhouse chemistry.

Nomar who?

Actually, I think he'd do well at second; and if he could do that in New York he could do it in Boston. Both could afford him.

The key is, can he stay injury free? I know in my fantasy league, I'll take him if he's available in round 24 or 25, but I'm not going to waste a pick on him. Last year my middle infield was Julio Lugo and Jimmy Rollins, and I got them cheap (won't happen again this year). I think I got Lugo in the 15th round.

I'm sticking with guys who don't get hurt this year. Period.

Cano is younger and cheaper at second; with a higher upside.

It's nice to find grounds for agreement with LB Buddy

"It's nice to find grounds for agreement with LB Buddy"

We both also think Matlack is a putz... >:)

There can be no disharmony among Red Sox Nation.
