pretty sure Nomar Garciaparra and Orel Hershiser almost got into a fight about pine tar on the air. Non-Vin games are always interesting.
If you need any more evidence that the Indians have the worst broadcast team in MLB, Tom Hamilton just invited everyone to celebrate the induction of "arguably the greatest shortstop of all time, Omar Vizquel." Seriously? Omar was great, but at no point in his career was he the best shortstop active in his own LEAGUE. His career mirrored Cal Ripken, Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriquez, and Nomar Garciaparra. Where's the argument?

The Boston Red Sox today agreed with shortstop Stephen Drew on a one-year contract through the 2014 season.  Drew takes the 25-man roster spot of left-handed pitcher Felix Doubront, who was placed on the 15-day disabled list today with a left shoulder strain.  Executive Vice President/General Manager Ben Cherington made the announcement.   An eight-year major league veteran, Drew played for Boston in 2013, and helped the Red Sox to the World Series Championship.  The left-handed batter played in 124 games, all at shortstop, during the regular season and hit .253 (112-for-442) with 29 doubles, eight triples, 13 home runs, 67 RBI, 57 runs scored, and 54 walks.   Drew slugged .443 in 2013, the best single-season mark by a primary Red Sox shortstop since Nomar Garciaparra slugged .524 in 2003 (min. 425 PA).  His .435 career slugging percentage is fourth best among primary shortstops over the last eight seasons (min. 2,500 PA) behind only Troy Tulowitzki (.520), Hanley Ramirez (.504), and Jose Reyes (.45 ...

Today in Red Sox History "3/10/10 Nomar Garciaparra signs a ceremonial 1-day contract with the then retires. ends his 14-year career with a .313 avg."
Red Sox fans, from a Grantland piece: "After three seasons, Rangers owner Tom Hicks had apparently grown tired of Rodriguez’s consistent excellence, and decided it was time to trade him.7 The Red Sox, who had just lost Game 7 of the ALCS to the Yankees on Aaron Boone’s 11th-inning homer in the Grady Little game, and who were in the process of trading for Curt Schilling in their ongoing game of nuclear proliferation with the Yankees, were interested. And so was Rodriguez. A deal was reached, and all sides were amenable: The Rangers would trade Rodriguez to Boston in exchange for Manny Ramirez and a prospect named Jon Lester. The Red Sox would then trade incumbent shortstop Nomar Garciaparra to the White Sox for Magglio Ordonez and a prospect named Brandon McCarthy. Everyone was happy with the deal, but no one more so than Rodriguez, who was so eager to play for a winning team that he did something utterly contrary to his reputation: He offered to take a substantial pay cut. The Red Sox weren’t willin ...

What if the Red Sox traded for Alex Rodriguez prior to the 2004 season?We’ll never know the answer to these or any of sports’ gazillion “what if” scenarios, so trying to formulate a rational prediction for each is fruitless. There are inevitably going to be factors — financial, draft implications, mental state, etc. — that get overlooked in one’s assessment of any “what if.”Thinking about what could have been is a good way to pass the time, though, and the A-Rod-to-Boston scenario is an extremely juicy “what if,” especially now that the Red Sox have won three World Series titles in 10’s Alex Speier broke down the near-deal that fell through 10 years ago. Rodriguez would have been traded to the Red Sox in exchange for Manny Ramirez and a Single-A pitcher by the name of Jon Lester. Boston then would have acquired Magglio Ordonez and then-minor league hurler Brandon McCarthy for Nomar Garciaparra in a subsequent transaction.The wheels seemed to be in motion. The Red Sox ...
Much like Boston legends Mia Hamm and Nomar Garciaparra before them, Gisele Bundchen is looking more like Tom Brady with ever passing day.
It appears as if there's an opening in the ESPN "Sunday Night Baseball" booth next year. Former Dodgers' great Orel Hershiser, who had sat in between Dan Shulman & John Kruk the last couple of years on "Baseball's Biggest Stage" has been hired by the team as one of the team's new broadcasters for their new regional sports network, SportsNet LA, starting this spring. While Vin Scully will be back in the booth for another season, mainly at home, Hershiser is one of three new broadcasters the team will be hiring. The others are MLB Network's Alanna Rizzo & Hershiser's ESPN teammate Nomar Garciaparra. As for Steve Lyons, memo to White Sox VP of Marketing & Broadcasting Brooks Boyer, hire him to replace Darrin Jackson or Ed Farmer on the Sox Radio Network...please!
Imagine this line-up we could have had in 04: 1) lead-off CF johnny damon 2) DH David Ortiz 3) LF Manny Ramirez 4) 3B Alex Rodriguez 5) SS Nomar Garciaparra (eventually traded that season) 6) RF Trot Nixon 7) C Jason Varitek 8) 1B Kevin Millar 9) 2B Mark Bellhorn/orlando cabrera (after the Nomar trade). I know Bill Mueller would have still been apart of the team but I don't know where he could have played. Now tell me that that wouldn't be an incredible line-up but fortunately/unfortunately bud selig robbed of us of arod (thank god) and we went on to win the most epic LCS series of all-time and eventually sweep the world series.

For this lift, you start with the bar on the rack and move under it, taking it with an underhand grip so that it is held against the collarbones and on the shoulders. Taking a breath at the top, you sink into a squat, moving deliberately, but in a controlled manner. Without pausing, you then stand up quickly and explosively, opening your hips as you stand. Move forward to re-rack the bar and you're done.

Imagine writing a book about Boston Red Sox shortstops, 2005 to present. Chapter 1, ‘What Might Have Been,’ would cover Nomar Garciaparra.  You remember Nomar: 1997 AL Rookie of the Year; AL batting champion in 1999 and 2000; face of the franchise from 1999-2003. In fact as late as the fall of 2003, most Sox fans would have predicted Nomar would still be the Red Sox shortstop today. Except that following the 2003 season, the Sox tried to sign A-Rod, and everything went directly to *** Learning that many Sox fans were ready to kick him to the curb to make room for A-Rod (what did we know, back then?), Nomar actually called Boston sports radio — while on his honeymoon — to defend himself.  As it turned out, the A-Rod deal fell famously apart, but so did Nomar. He went from playing poorly to rarely playing at all, and at the trade deadline he was dealt, bravely and brilliantly, to the Chicago Cubs in a three-team deal that brought the Sox shortstop Orlando Cabrera, first baseman Doug Mientkiewicz . ...

It happens all the time. When big-names leave Boston, they get blasted on the way out. It's happened plenty of times before, most notably with guys like Mo Vaughn, Nomar Garciaparra, Manny Ramirez, Terry Francona etc., and I'm sure it'll happen again. But now we're getting to hear one member of the…

Nomar Garciaparra Hall of Famer next year with Jeff kent !
Ok Bonds Clemons Sosa didnt get in HOF first year of eligibility im not shocked. These guys cheated and took away from the integrity of the game. Granted watching all these guys play was awesome. I dont understand these guys cheating to be better then someone who works there *** off everyday. I hope none of these guys get in ever. Only legit players need to be there

longevity is very valuable its what separates a Barry Larkin from a Nomar Garciaparra. certainly not a detriment!
Dodgers trivia (kinda): On September 18, 2006, the Dodgers (playing the Padres) won one of the most exciting regular season games in franchise history after a 10th inning walk off HR by Nomar Garciaparra. This was possible due to 4 consecutive HRs to tie the game in the bottom of the 9th inning. Who were the two pitchers who gave up the 4 consecutive HRs? *I'll comment when someone answers correctly. -LAD15
Thanks Debra Miller for our noon-hour trip down memory lane. I MISS THE 90's!! Ready to go home and watch Singles while wearing a plaid shirt and combat boots, then bust out some Hip Hop and dance around the living room, followed by a Meg Ryan/Tom Hanks movie marathon. You down Kevin Pillow?
ESPN has a poll up asking "Which athlete that came on the scene in 1996 have you enjoyed watching the most?". The choices are: Derek Jeter, Ray Lewis, Kobe Bryant, and Tiger Woods. Where is "none of the above?". Not one of them is someone I would want my daughter to look up to, or be left alone with (if Jeter sounds out of place, Google "gift basket" with his name to see how he treats women). It didn't take long to come up with other people who debuted in 1996 who I'm a lot happier about having heard of: Steve Nash, Ray Allen, Jarome Iginla, Nomar Garciaparra. All accomplished, all people who make the world a better place outside their arenas, and while there may be things we don't know, certainly none of the gross indecencies of ESPN's list of would-be heroes.
I can't wait for the Mattingly Hall of Fame supporters to start making the same "But if not for injuries" case for Nomar Garciaparra.

Red Sox 3B Will Middlebrooks has been named the winner of the Harry Agganis Award as 2012 Red Sox Rookie of the Year in voting done by the Boston BBWAA. Middlebrooks hit .288 with 15 home runs and 54 RBIs in a season cut short by a wrist injury. Boston was 41-29 in the 70 games he started. The winner of the inaugural Agganis Award in 1940 was future Hall of Famer Ted Williams. Other winners include Dustin Pedroia, Nomar Garciaparra, Fred Lynn and Jim Rice, Roger Clemens and Carl Yastrzemski.

In what has become a near annual offseason tradition, the Boston Red Sox have an apparent opening at shortstop. Ever since Nomar Garciaparra was traded to the Chicago Cubs as part of a four team trade in 2004, the Red Sox shortstop position has been in a constant state of flux. Among the names to ...
Random thoughts on football While watching the Eagles-Falcons game with the folks on Fox, I decided that the Fox commentators and color analysts for college and pro football and MLB are the least obnoxious and offensive on television. I wonder if Fox could orchestrate a takeover of ESPN/ABC Sports and CBS Sports and then ban for life Musburger, Herbstreit, Dr. Lou, Verne Lundquist, Gary Danielson in college football, Mike Patrick, Orel Hershiser, Nomar Garciaparra, and Robin Yount in college baseball, and a few other irritating talking heads. Did you see the Steelers uniforms? Are they now the Pittsburg Bumble Bees? Are college and pro football teams having a contest to see who can wear the ugliest uniforms this season? The Ducks will be hard to beat, but those bumble bee stripes are a big fashion mistake. IMO, neither college or pro football need these gimmicks to attract an audience. If management and coaches put a quality product on the field, the fans will flock to the stadium and will tune in on tv. ...
