Goodbye, Nomar

Sunday, August 1st, 2004 @ 9:16 pm | Sports

Nomar in a Cubs uniform looks weird. Nomar not wearing number 5 looks weird.

I know he probably would have left the Red Sox at the end of the year, but I was not prepared to see the “Garciaparra Traded” ticker at the bottom of the television screen Saturday afternoon. As long as Nomar was pulling a Red Sox jersey over his head, there was a chance he’d stay with the Red Sox. Granted, there’s nothing stopping the Red Sox from attempting to bring him back to Boston as a free agent, but it’s clear that yesterday was goodbye.

Nomar went 1-4 with an RBI in his first game as a Cub. He was wearing number 8.
