Farewell Nomah

In a break from AirVenture coverage...

The Redsox yesterday traded Nomar Garciaparra to the Cubs.

There was a time when I felt strongly that Nomar should spend his whole career with the Redsox. But since last winter it's become clear that Nomar was profoundly unhappy here, and I've suspected that his funk might be affecting the clubhouse. So I've felt that he should move on.

I wish him well. I hope he is happier in Chicago than he's been in Boston recently.

[Oh, and let me repeat -- and this has nothing to do with Nomar playing there now -- I think a Redsox-Cubs World Series would be a terrible thing.]
