Nomar calls it a day as an official member of the Red Sox. What a shame, he was once looking like a sure fire Hall of Famer, until that injured wrist slowed his swing. One of the few Red Sox players I respected. He always seemed like a nice guy, and a class act. Hope he has a happy retirement.

Agreed. When I think of Nomar, this story always comes to mind:

Second time in his career he quit as a member of the Red Sox, the other of course being in the summer of '04, before he mysteriously became healthy when he became a Cub. Bye beautiful, go worry about women soccer leagues like you did when you went in the tank the last 6 weeks of the '03 season.

Nomar was rarely healthy as a Cub. He was just never the same after the injury bug started, no matter what team he was on.

It's interesting to compare the careers of the 'big three' shortstops as they were back in the late nineties as Jeter, ARod and Nomar. Unfortunately for baseball, there is really only one still playing.

When Nomar made contact, it seemed like it was *always* on the sweet spot of the bat. Great hitter.

So long, Nomar. We'll always have 4+1 (mlb.mlb.com).

If anything, it feels a lot worse this time around, because Loria's swindled the Miami taxpayers into funding his abomination of a stadium to the tune of nearly half a billion dollars.
