Nomar and Todd Walker both signed one year deals today, keepping the former BoSox middle infield connection together for at least one more year. You can find all the info about the contracts on the Cubs Website. http://www.cubs.com
Yeah...Walker's playing second. It'll be nice to have his wrong-handed bat in the lineup for a full complement of ABs. From what I could tell, the difference in his and Grudz' D wasn't that great to warrant Grudz getting all the PT at second after he came off the DL. Now all they need is a left fielder and a closer.
I don't really want to debate his hall of fame merits right now ... but if he gets in, I will wish then that it had happened this year. Wright Thompson at ESPN has a nice column (sports.espn.go.com) up about O'Neil that I would point anyone to.
