BDD Tuesday Night Former Sox Spotlight:

Good Day for Pedro Astacio, Tough Night for Nomar

Nomar returned to the Cubs lineup tonight after sitting out Monday night’s game to battle allergies. He went 0-for-5 and is now batting .163 on the season. Cubs-Reds game log:

1st: Garciapopup to first.
3rd: Bases loaded with none out and Garciaparra due up. Nomar fouled out to first.
5th: Nomar struck out swinging.
7th: Runner on second with one out and Nomar due up. Garciapopup to first.
9th: Runner on first with one out and Garciaparra due up. Nomar grounded into a fielder’s choice, short to second.

And no home runs in 49 at-bats this season. ESPN's Peter Gammons said not to worry that Nomar will hit his .320 when it's all said and done. Gordon Edes prediction of NL MVP still alive. Maybe receiving his Red Sox World Series ring will lift his spirits and take some pressure off.
