Nomar We Hardly Knew Ye

Or, Nomah Nomar

It seemed too good to be true. When the trade materialized out of thin air at the 11th hour, and during the Cactus League ’05 when the old Nomar made a guest appearance, ripping the cover off the ball all across the desert. Of course it was too good to be true.

Muscle ripped off the bone? That’s a far worse image than the close-up on Carlos Zambrano’s blood blister that ESPN showed during my evening meal (we had Cubs for dinner tonight, on the actual TV instead of the computer).

The poor guy, as they say here, must be “in bits.” After everything that’s happened in his last year or two, this really takes the biscuit.

Neifi is going to be the man—who else would be available? Could anything be done about adding a big bat in left field, at this time of year?
