Nomar Garciparra retires
Former Red Sox shortstop Nomar Garciaparra retired today. He signed a one day contract so that he retired as a Red Sox. I am pleased about that but it will always feel a little empty that we had to give up our most popular player to put in place the team that would win the 2004 World Series and their first in 86 years. If nothing else, he was a major part of a winning tradition that planted the seeds for that incredible run.
