Nomar: $60,000,000 or $37 and a Hot Dog? You decide.
The full story of Garciaparra's sad end may never be known, but his friends will tell you he never really rejected that $60 million deal. He was at a barbecue when his agent called to say it was on the table but perhaps they could get more. Garciaparra supposedly didn't say much and went back to his hot dog.
