Nomar Rumor Update: A First Base Job with the Yankees?
Tuesday, December 13, 2005
fun fact: "Nomar" is "Ramon" spelled backwards!

The New York Post has reported today that the Yankees are very interested in signing Nomar to play first base – despite the fact that he’s never played a game at first before. Neither the Yankees nor Normar’s agent, Arn Tellem, will confirm any rumors, the Post reports that “several industry sources indicated an offer has been made”.

I think that even the Post would have to admit that their sources sound shady at best, but for the sake of “what-ifs” I thought it would be interesting to take a look at Nomar’s career thus far.

THE VITALS:

Full Name: Anthony Nomar Garciaparra
Age: 32
Seasons in MLB: 10
Teams Played With: Red Sox, Cubs
Career Batting Average: .320
Career OBP: .367
Lowest BA: .241, 1996 (partial season)
Highest BA: .372, 2000
Career FP: .968
Awards: 5 All-Star, Rookie of the Year, 1 Silver Slugger

Wow, those look great! Now, why would a Yanks fan be apprehensive about signing Nomar?

Injuries: Achilles tendon problem, wrist injury, back problems, groin injuries…..

    I too think he will be signed in a day or so, if not sooner. Hopefully Cashman doesn't go far beyond about 6 mil for 1 year and see what Nomar has left. Could be a decent signing.

    I think it would be great to bring Mr. Mia Hamm to New York...

    Every Yankees broadcast would have the obligatory camera shot of his hot wife. :)

    hahaha :)

    I actually like Nomar. I think he'd be a good pickup for first base. we'd still have giambi, too - - our infield would be incredibly tight.

    Seems like a good guy to sign, especially in a super utility role. He can be plugged in to just about every position.

    Rewrite: He's willing to play any position. I'm not sure how good he'll be defensively in a spot he's unfamiliar with.

    I get flashbacks of Piazza playing 1B, and I vomit in mouth.

    it's so sad how far nomar has fallen over the past few years, but it wouldn't be the worst move in the world if the yanks could secure him at the right price. imagine jeter, arod, and nomar in the same infield...how times have changed from just a few years ago.

    I like the idea of picking up Nomar. Now we need to actively pursue Tejada for the center field spot. Oh, and Furcal could pitch. How 'bout Renteria or Ripken or Rizzuto?

    Dang. This doesn't have to stop with shortstops. Maybe we could bring back Cecil Fielder to be our Center Fielder.
