  • Nomar Back to the DL?

    It appears that Nomar's Dodgers debut will be postponed as he's likely headed for the DL. Here's a link to the Dodgers.com article. The guy just can't stay healthy.

    here's hoping that garciaparra mends soon and returns to good form for the hated dodgers.

      You'd like to feel some sympathy for the Dodgers, but this is a problem they volunteered for.

        Sutcliffe really laid the Nomar cards on the table yesterday. He said he's become a 6 million dollar gamble and that he hasn't been the "Nomar" we want to remember ,for years. Sutcliffe says he watched him extensively this spring and even "healthy"( emphasis on skepticism on his part) Nomar could not turn on balls and drive them anymore. Rare to hear a guy really go into such negative detail . New Dodger gm was asked by Erin Anderson (?) if they were going to act to replace Nomar and he didn't flinch in replying,"tomorrow if needed". Too bad, he was a super player in his all too brief early years.

          count on ned colletti to not waste time to act, if he feels necessary.

          good luck to garciaparra and colletti, good men, both.

            You're saying that their GM would trade Nomah? Or DFA him?

              This is really sad. For those of us who remember Nomar in his glory days in Boston, it's such a shame to see him crumble like this, and still so young, too.

              He wants so much to play... When he was on the DL in early '04 with the Achilles injury, he'd sit on the top step of the dugout and watch the play on the field with the intensity and yearning.

              I'm glad I saw him at his best.

                Has he seen many doctors this winter? I figure it may be either his warmup technique needs improvement, or perhaps he has some kind of debilitating thing. Not quite ALS, but something's not right physically with him.

                  Of course, that image, for me at least, is countered by the image of him sitting on the dugout bench at Yankees stadium, pouting, as everyone of his teammates was up on the steps, getting into what was one of the most exciting regular seasons games I can remember ever seeing.

                  To me, Nomar's continuing injury woes, and how those injuries tend to linger for him, combined with the rare power he flashed for a SS earlier in his career, make Nomar's career fairly suspicious, IMO. But then again, I'm pretty much suspicious of everyone now.

                    I still remember the Nomar,Jeter and A-Rod debates.

                      A sad story, for sure. Nomar was great....probably on his way to a Hall of Fame career. But then his body, and then his attitude, gave out. The combination of both made him great. It sounded like he'd gotten back the desire, the attitude...but the body still isn't cooperating.

                      Of course, maybe this injury is just a minor bump in the road, he'll be back in two weeks, and nobody will remember his DL stint when they're voting him comeback player of the year. Too soon to tell.

                        I do too...it is funny to think about it now. One is a SS, one a 3B, and one on the DL again/still.

                            I'm worried about Nomar, because he has All-Star potential, but the injury bug keeps on attacking him. He can easily have a monster season, but the injury frequency for him is too high. I fear that he could be a few injuries away from retiring, despite he's not even 33 years old.

                              Its really too bad, how nomar is so injury prone now. Not so long ago he was considered a future hall of famer but now he is just a player who gets injured all time(with great skills if healthy). Its sad when a guy with HOF potential, body starts to breaks down before they can really put a total HOF career together.
