I've been meaning to post this, but haven't had the time. This is not an article breaking down Nomar's season, where he ranks amongst NL corner infielders. No.
The reason for this post is to ask one basic question: WTF were you swinging at Friday night? Were ANY of those pitches within a foot of the plate?
Lidge made Nomar look like my 6 year old daughter swinging at pitches I throw to her practicing softball. Come on, does anyone think Lidge is going to give Nomar a pitch to hit, knowing that Nomar has been a first pitch hitter his whole career? Did Nomar really think Lidge was going to throw a pitch over the plate in that sitation? Why does anyone swing at anything Lidge offers? It's always in the dirt, especially with > 1 strike in the count.
Sorry, I had to get that off my chest.
