Of course if you remove ALL context, the Sox would never trade Nomar for Cabrera, either. If Jeter were...

1. About to be a free agent
2. Making ridiculous contract demands
3. Completely unhappy

...I think the Yankees would be as inclined to ship him outta town as the Sox were Nomar.

You're right. They'd just release him outright, move A-Rod back, then trade for the best third baseman not on the market.

Oh come on!! He got beat by Dotel & hit a little flare that found a hole between the rightfielder & centerfielder.

That's not clutch, it's lucky...

G - INN - E - RF - FPCT
101 891.2 7 4.67 .985 Jeter

037 311.1 6 3.87 .957 Garciapparra

Bubbles, everybody knows Jeter's a better defensive SS than Nomar. If you're going to put up the defensive stats you should put the offense in there, too. Nomar owns Jeter in every offensive category.

Just to get this thread slightly back on topic, the near-daily Bill Simmons columns are probably the highlight of my summer. And they're all FUNNY, which is the best part; the guy must have a bunch of pent-up material from Kimmel.

Actually, no; he isn't. As much as defense has been studied (and compared to offense, it barely has) "everyone" knows that Nomar is the better defensive SS.

Rather than look at this year, bubbles, why not pull up some stats from years where Nomar hasn't been half-crippled?
