|Boston’s fallen son Nomaaahhhh, who was traded to the Cubs back in 2004, has been granted free agency again this year and the Yankees are among several teams thought to possibly benefit from his services. Nomar has spent most of his career at shortstop, a post that clearly needs no filling in the Bronx, but that doesn’t mean that we wouldn’t be able to use him in some capacity. He hasn’t played first base thus far in his major league career, but he could possibly share that role with Giambi while Jason is DH-ing. It’s also possible that he could make the transition to the outfield, though only time would tell if he’d be able to acclimate himself out there. Another use for the dyslexic Ramon could be to use him at second in place of lefty Cano against tough lefty pitchers. With a .320 lifetime batting average and the capability to hit for power (despite the fact that his past two seasons have been weaker than usual he’s still slugging .544 lifetime) I could gladly accept this former Bosox agent on team. He was, after all, gleefully sullen towards the Sox at the end of his tenure in Boston…I can get behind that kind of Sox hatred!
