Arn Tellem, the agent for Nomar Garciaparra, said in The Plain Dealer today that his client could choose a team by the end of the week.
The finalists are reportedly the NL champion Astros (big market), the Dodgers (even bigger market), the Yankees (King Kong market) and the Indians (mom 'n pop grocery market).
To quote a little ditty from Sesame Street, "One of these things is not like the others."
Can you pick out the one that doesn't belong? I'll give you a hint: it's the team whose general manager recently said, "We'd love to have Kevin Millwood back on a one-year contract," likely causing Millwood's agent, Scott Boras, to wet his pants laughing.
