    "Visiting Americans love going to Cuban games because with no free agency, no franchise movement and no owners blackmailing cities for new stadiums, it all smacks of 1950's America, ignoring the inconvenient fact that such a fantasyland is only possible in a dictatorship"-S.L. Price

    What's the big deal? So the guy had a bad day and didn't feel like being social. I wouldn't begrudge him for that.

      Agreed

      I agree but I would describe Nomar more as having bad days rather than just a bad day.

        Nomar was soured by his time in Boston -- the fans being incessantly all over him really got to him after a while. Some people are social, some aren't -- and Nomar really hasn't been for years. This is nothing new, and isn't limited to Nomar.

        Pearlman must have had nothing to write if the best he could come up with was that Nomar didn't chit chat with fans during an autograph session. He didn't even have a quote from a fan being displeased with Nomar. The only quote he did have was one he made up that was accredited to Nomar's body language.

        Actually he has two quotes from fans saying they are sick and that the Dodgers are deserting them, which is about the Dodgers moving ST to Arizona and absolutely nothing to do with Nomar.

          There was a good story a few years ago about Nomar saving a woman from drowning in Boston Harbor, think he actually jumped from the balcony of a condo to do it. Hopefully, there's still some of that in him and he just had the red posterior for some reason on Auto Day.

            When I have a bad day, I'm not allowed to take it out on paying customers. But hey, maybe that's just the policy where I work. Of course, my boss is a real stickler for that kind of thing (I'm self employed).

              Yeah I remember that too. He's not a big warm fuzzy David Ortiz kind of guy. Just not the way he is. He can be cordial, but he usually likes to keep to himself.

                Better than Kirk Gibson

                At least Nomar signed the autograph. A friend of mine actually saw Kirk Gibson tell a fan and his kid who, unbeknownst to him, was terminally ill, "F**k you, drop dead." This was in the Tigers' locker room after all the other Tigers gave the kid a day to remember with autographs and pics. Now that's class!

                I got his autograph once and he never even looked at you, too busy talking to the person he was with.
