As a Cubs fan this is great news. They didn't have to give up much to get Nomar. Now as someone who finds Nomar's constant playing with his batting gloves, I'm tuning off my WGN.

I don't give a flying fig about sports in general, or the Red Sox in particular, but I just wanted to publicly express my sympathy to the guy here in Cow Hampshire with the license plate "NOMAH." He must be feeling pretty screwed right about now...
