Nomar Calls It Quits
One of my favorite Red Sox was Nomar Garciaparra. Today, Nomar signed a 1 Day contract to retire as a Red Sox. I was disappointed when Nomar was traded at the deadline in 2004, but giving up Nomar did help the Sox win their first World Series in 86 years. He will forever be linked with Alex Rodriguez and Derek Jeter as they all came up as athletic shortstops who could really hit the ball. Nomar had a few years that were pretty incredible (Batting titles in '99 and '00), but struggled with injuries after leaving Boston in 2004. Garciaparra will join ESPN as an analyst. Everyone at Bros. at Arms wishing him well.
