New Plan: Nomar to Play Shortstop with Raffy Out

As it turns out, the trade for Angel Berroa did indeed signal lingering problems for Rafael Furcal. According to the LA Times, Raffy’s back is going to keep him out an additional three weeks! Sigh. The new plan is to move Nomar back to shortstop once he completes his rehab assignment in the next week or so. Hey, the guy was a five-time All-Star at the position, but that was three looooong years ago for the aging infielder. At the very least, I appreciate Ned and Joe’s creativity and the support for Blake DeWitt.
