Nomar Garciaparra Signs with the Dodgers; Yankees Foiled Again
Sunday, December 18, 2005
Just as the rumor mill predicted, Nomar has chosen to sign with the Dodgers instead of the Yankees or the Indians. The deal is apparently worth about six million dollars and incentives that could bump up the salary to eight million.
The Dodgers will apparently be posting Nomar at first base, effectively making their newfangled infield very tight. Their 2006 infield now includes another former Sox player Bill Mueller at third, young ex-Brave Furcal at short, Jeff Kent at second and now Nomar at first. The Dodgers are also looking to sign Kenny Lofton and Reggie Sanders for their outfield, moves that could actually make at least one team in the NL east not a complete joke.

Nomar’s choice obviously puts the Yankees out of another gap-filler option. The Yankees are still looking at Damon for the outfield, and as I mentioned yesterday Cairo is an option for a backup infielder.

I have a feeling that Nomar will regret his decision to pass on the Yankees. After all, if he had chosen the Yankees he wouldn't be stuck with the dilemma of trying to squeeze "Garciaparra" onto the back of a jersey...

    Them Dodgers are actually looking pretty good. With Gagne coming back, I think you need to call them the favorites to win the NL West.

    Come 2007, when the Padres get Chan Ho Park and Klesko off the payroll (among others), they should be able to put together an even better team with their core.

    Maybe I need more coffee... the Dodgers don't have last names on their jerseys since last year, FYI.

    Nice blog, by the way, Yankee Girl. I'm thinking of adding it as a newslink source at baseballgeeks. Cool with you?

    Tis done. :) No prob on the forgetting of the removal of names from the Dodger jersey.

    It is something I would LIKE to forget.
