That's Boston-ese for "Nomar Garciaparra," who was traded today to my Chicago Cubs. "We're going to glory!"

Actually, to be completely honest, what the Cubs really needed was either a couple of relief pitchers with playoff expeirence or a left-handed batting lead-off hitter.

What they got, though a great player, is an awful lot more of what they already have (often injured right-handed hitters who are so focused on the easy left-field homerun at Wrigley that they either hit it out or (far more frequently) go down on strikes.

Still, you've got to like your chances better with No-maaah at short than with Alex Gonzales.

Off to glory we go!
