|"Maybe we can get Tejada to start and Vizquel as middle relief" ---Jeter
Nomar’s agent, Arn Tellem, has reported that they have zeroed in on four choice teams and while have made their decision by the end of the week – possibly by the end of today. The teams include the Yankees, Indians, the Astros, and possibly the Dodgers, and his possible roles with these teams range from right field to first base. Nomar and Tellem are seeking a one year deal worth between six and eight million dollars with incentives.
If Nomar ends up playing first base with the Yankees, we would effectively have three all-star shortstops in the infield. Even though Nomar has never played even one inning at first base, I personally think that he has the athleticism to adapt. Despite all the injuries, I’m actually crossing my fingers that we do sign him. Our infield defense would be pretty much airtight…
Stay tuned for further Nomar signing scoop - - I’ll be scouring the internet all day in hopes of seeing something official!
