I know I'm being sentimental, but wouldn't it be great to see Nomar redeem himself with the Red Sox? I'm reading Bill Simmons's book, and it's reminding me of how special a player Nomar was. He once batted over .370, hit for power, had an amazing work ethic, and performed in the clutch (especially against the Indians in the playoffs).
And then everything fell apart. Injuries and clashes with management ruined his reputation and now he struggles to find a job. Well, if the theory is to buy low and sell high, now's the time to buy Nomar. The Red Sox need a shortstop, a first baseman, and possibly a centerfielder. For a reasonable price, Nomar is capable of playing each of these positions.
Maybe he is done, but what if he turns out to be like Paul Molitor who struggled with injuries before becoming a Hall of Famer by ending his career strongly? I'd rather see Nomar do it with a Red Sox hat than a Yankees hat.
