Yeah he is established as a pretty good hitter. Last year was a write off and you cant hold too much stock in it. I would say 25-30 dingers, .300, 95 steaks are reasonable to expect from him.

Everyone said he was going to have a big contract year last year, but he got hurt. I think he makes up for it this season. I got him 4th round and am banking on a big season from him.

.500 average and 6 homers in 36 ABs is an insane streak, ST or not. I hope he carries it into the season.

Are you pessimistic about everything and everyone or is it just me?

u realise your talking about NOMAR GARCIPARA

this is nomar, just last year he was the 1st shortstop taken (arod being at 3b) and he was takin on 1st round of many drafts.

He is a super stud at shortstop. Who got hurt last season, then got traded from his life long team, and put up decent numbers in the games he did play.

now healthy in 2005, he is ready to explode and show the red sox they were wrong to ever trade him (and that he should have taken that mega deal he declined)

nomar is not a mirage, he is the real deal and he has been the real deal for many years.

100 runs
28 home runs
100 rbi
15 sb
310 avg

put it down in stone.

Hmmm....we heard the same thing about Prior.

Nomar has missed sserious time in 2 of the past 4 years. Roll the dice if you like...50/50.

Nomar is the Real deal. He has bounced back from a bad season before. He is far too talented to be unproductive. I don't understand how he has so many doubters. He is one of the best hitters in the game. c'mon .322 lifetime average!!! The guy is a Doubles and Triples machine.

I drafted him, I think he will be ridiculous this year, for many reasons, but there is still one thing that is uncertain: Will he still run: 1) Is he still capable of stealing bases (will that achilles injury put an end to his running game?) and 2) Will the Cubs let him run?

If he can hit the ball like he used to, then he's a great pick, and if he also steals like he used to, then he's an amazing pick!

The cubs don't let anybody run it seems at times, so I wouldn't count on too many SB's or even many stretched extra base hits. But, I agree, he will smoke em this year.
