Nomar Garciaparra - SS - Cubs
Cubs re-signed shortstop Nomar Garciaparra to a one-year, $8 million contract. The 31-year-old Garciaparra remains a premier offensive shortstop, but the questions about his durability and his defense led him to pursue a one-year deal this winter. He'll try to rebuild his value in 2005 and get back some of the money he's missing out on after turning down $60 million and $48 million contracts from the Red Sox.
I hope Nomar can survive on $8 mil... Seriously, I wish Nomar the best; hope he's happy in Chicago, has a huge year and gets himself a nice contract next year. Oh, and he really needs a new agent next time around.
