Garciaparra has a very idiosyncratic and remarkable side arm throwing movement when making defensive plays. This motion is usually coupled with an apparently off-balance running stride, which is inefficient and above all injury-prone. In the 2005 season, a torn left groin forced him onto the disabled list for more than three months. There has been some conjecture on him moving to the outfield for the 2006 season. And it is unpredictable how good Nomar Garciaparra is going to be in 2006.

His rapidity won’t stand anywhere in front of the past statistics he has recorded. Even his scouting reports are not that notable. It is really doubtful that whether he’ll be really, really good next season, a sure bet for the Comeback Player of the Year award or again he would be limping off the field in agonizing pain. Yankees manager Joe Torre, is busy wooing Nomar, but would anybody tell him his ambiguousness? Cleveland manager Eric Wedge, remembers Nomar from back in the day, only has hunches. The Dodgers are guessing. So are the Astros. The Twins, also said to be interested in Nomar, have no clue. Nobody in baseball, or out of it, has any idea as to whether Garciaparra, a former Rookie of the Year, a two-time batting champ, a five-time All-Star with the Red Sox, has anything left. Or should I say if he has everything left? So many things could go right for a team that signs Garciaparra and so many things could go wrong.

Shopping around I felt the need for another reward card and the wide selection I got here was overwhelming.
