Eerie — Nomar just hit one out
Hard to believe, isn’t it, that this is the first time Nomar Garciaparra has played against the Red Sox.
And as I sit here in the press box, they had just shown footage of Nomar’s first career homer, struck on Sept. 1, 1996, against these Oakland A’s here at the Coliseum. I kid you not, immediately after that highlight, Nomar ripped a solo shot into almost the exact same spot into the LF corner against Jon Lester. This was career jack No. 227 for Nomahhhhhhhhhhhhh.
Kind of weird to see Nomar and Orlando Cabrera now teaming up on the left side of Oakland’s infield, isn’t it?
OK. How worried is eveyrone about Lester? Just two bad starts or is something else wrong?
