Dan Kennedy on Nomar and why it’s basically a good thing he’s gone:

Nomar was a great, great player, and he may be once again. But for whatever reason – and I’m certainly not holding management blameless – his situation in Boston had become untenable. Keep an eye on the off-season and see what he signs for. I’ll bet it’s for a lot less than the $60 million he turned down from the Sox – or even the $48 million “market correction” offer they later made.”
