Ouch that has to hurt, more

Nomar Garciaparra had to be carted off the field with what looks like to be a groin injury in last nights game.

Nomar Garciaparra of the Chicago Cubs was carried off the field with a groin injury after grounding into a double play and then collapsing just in front of the batter's box in the third inning of Wednesday night's game against the St. Louis Cardinals.

The slumping Garciaparra, hitting .157 after going 0-for-2 with a strikeout, took a few steps toward first base before falling. The team said the severity of the injury to Garciaparra's left groin was unclear and said he likely would undergo an MRI exam on Thursday.

It is probably better for the team that he did hurt himself. With Nomar batting 157 that has to do more harm than good to the Cubs especially since his defense isn't excatly up to par either. I hope Nomar is still kicking himself for not accepting the Redsox 4 year $60 million offer because he wanted to make more money.
