Yanks have offered Nomar a deal, and want him to play 1st base.

It would be funny to see Nomar, Alex and Jeter together.

Can't wait to hear all the Yankee fans kissing Nomar's butt after bashing him since 1997, if he does in fact sign.

In my opinion he's still a very good hitter when healthy, although that's a risk. He won't get a lot of money but he could put up some good numbers if he's healthy. He would probably hit around .300 with 15 to 20 HRs and 70 RBIs at least.

Hopefully Nomar doesn't go to the dark side though....

I would just think it would be very funny for the three of them playing together if it happens! And the best SS of the three is at 3rd base!

For all those years, everybody was comparing them as great Shortstops in the AL. Now all of them could potentially be in one infield. Haha, amazing.

It would be funny although I always thought that Nomar was the better pure hitter out of the 3 before he got hit in the wrist by Al F'n Reyes. ARod clearly was the best overall and still is.

I love Nomar, but if the Yanks are willing to take a chance on him good. His recent track record suggests season ending injury by the All-Star break..

Nosemar won't be a Yankee, this is just a rumor to keep the Yankees in the news a little since the Mets are dominating the headlines!

Nomar was the best pure hitter in baseball in 1999-2000. He was an absolute beast at the plate. .372 average? The Cleveland Indians were scared to pitch to the guy in the 1999 ALDS, which opened the door for two huge Troy O'Leary homeruns. The guy was a mega-star.

Either he took steroids or Al ****** Reyes ended his career with that fastball to the wrist.

You forgot to mention that Nomar batted .372 with that bad wrist in 2000. He got hit in the wrist towards the end of 1999, where he only batted .357 and actually missed 3 of the ALDS games vs. Cleveland because it of. Yet in 2000 he battled through the injury and was still amazing.

Yankee fans can say anything they want about Nomar however the numbers for him don't lie:

Player A Career Numbers: BA .314, OBP .386, SLG .461, OPS .847, Hits 1936, 169 HRs, 763 RBIs, 1159 runs, 636 BB, 6167 at bats, 1525 games played

Player B Career Numbers: BA .320, OBP. 367, SLG. .544, OPS .911, Hits 1395, 191 HRs, 740 RBIs, 765 runs, 307 BB, 4363 at bats, 1071 games played

Player A- Jeter
Player B- Nomar

If healthy Nomar is a force and an excellent hitter. (I know, I know Jeter has the 4 rings and all the intangibles). This isn't suppose to start a debate of who's better/worst. All I'm trying to say is to give Nomar a little more credit.

Maybe they'll trade for Tejada to play second, too.

Have you seen his #s for the last two months of the year? I'd certainly like Nomar to return to the Cubs & play SS or LF.

If Nomar is 75-80% of what he used to be hes a great pickup for anyone. At a reduced price he could be a huge addition to a team.

This Yankee thing is really funny to me.
I used to live in Fort Myers, Fl (which is where the Sox have spring training). During Nomar's last year w/ the Sox, the Yankees came to town for the first spring training game of the season. At some point Nomar, A-Rod, and Jeter got together on the field and shook hands.

A rumor got started about Nomar going to the Yanks after that year and playing 2nd base. You should have heard the calls coming into that radio station.:lol: All the local Red Sox fans were losing it!
