Nomar Agrees to One Year Deal with Dodgers

California Signin'
Sung to California Dreamin' by the Mamas and the Papas

L.A.’s his new town -- Nomar’s brand new town
At first he will play -- Was he on eBay?
Will he walk the walk -- Or just talk the talk
On a summer’s day -- With Grady making hay
He'll be safe and warm -- He'll be safe and warm
Now that he’s in L.A. -- Finally in L.A.
California signin' -- California signin'
Where’s Nomar’s big payday?

Married Mia in a church
In Californ-i-a
Well, he got down on bad knees -- Got down on bad knees
And he began to pray -- He began to pray
You know Boston fans are cold -- Boston fans are cold
We knew he’d go away -- Afraid of East Coast play
California signin' -- California signin'
Does Coco go away?

When Nomar left our town -- Nomar left our town
We didn’t have to pay -- $60 million to save
He still won't take a walk -- He won't take a walk
Or do what Grady say -- Or do what Grady say

If he would have signed here -- If he would have signed here
For two more years we’d pay -- Worse than the Edgar mistake
California signin' -- California signin'
Poor Nomar's at first base
California signin' -- California signin'
Poor Nomar's at first base
California signin' -- California signin'
Poor Nomar's at first base

"Sun, beach, what else is there?" –- Nomar Garciaparra, circa 2002
