Nomar's just lucky he didn't get caught taking steriods, that's probably why his numbers are so good. Don't be fooled, he's lucky, just like Derek Jeter and many other baseball players.

Baseball's a game of cheaters, don't know how anybody can be a fan when all the top players are just taking steroids.

We stopped watching baseball during the McGuire-Sosa home run chase, we knew they were taking performance enhancing drugs, what's the point?

Oh, they were just taking them to rehab? Why did their numbers drop off so much when they stopped then? Just like Manny's and David Ortiz's numbers dropped through the floor after they got bagged!

Don't be fooled!

Nice to see another juicer associated with the Red Sox. He's a bum.

I became a Red Sox fan again when Nomar joined the team and lost interest when he was traded. He was a delight to watch and a classy guy.

I think is the best of both worlds. We lost Nomar but we won the world series that year. There is no better way to say thank you, for his years playing in Boston.

Spring is almost here and can't wait for opening day!!!

Most likely he did take them, since many of his injuries had been consistent with others who had taken steroids.

You really can't believe the statistics from anyone who played at this time anyway, due to all the steroids, so the better someone did, the more likely they juiced up.

Look at cycling: nearly all the top 10 cyclists from the 1990s got bagged doping, but no one seems to believe Lance didn't do the same, give me a break, he was the best of the best, better than the dopers and he didn't take steroids? If you believe that, I got a bridge to sell you.
