Nomar Garciaparra retired on March 10, 2010.
He had an amazing career and, in his prime, it was argued that he was as good or better than AROD and Jeter.
Something happened after he bulked up for this SI cover in 2001.
He got injured and he got injured a lot !
Just like his contemporaries, Mo Vaughan, Todd Hundley, John Rocker, Eric Gagne, Juan Gonzalez, Troy Glaus and David Segui who surprisingly and rapidly all lost their skills in the face of ligament injuries and muscular-skeletal damage – he has no idea what might have caused the change in his career and health trajectory !!!
