Nomar plays first base

Doesn't that just sound weird. Nomar Garciappara may have been the best shortstop to play for Boston, and here we are just a few years later, and he's playing first base.

Pre mid 90's, SS was just a defensive position, leaving the power and hitting numbers to the outfielders. Then Nomar, Jeter and A-Rod came along and redefined what the position meant. Now, Jeter is the only one still starting at SS.
