Nomar Trade?

Does anyone feel that the Nomar trade was a big mistake? According to the yahoo sports poll "big mistake" beats out "good move" 56%-48%. Now the Red Sox are 0-2 without Nomar and the Cubs are 1-0 with him. Just remember that last August Nomar was the one that pushed the Sox into September. Cabrera does not give you the same veteran presence Nomar does. Now the Sox probability of making it to the playoffs is the same as it previously was. I don't see a big upgrade. Now if the Sox make it to the playoffs (which as of now is a big if) they won't make it past the first round. They're not going anywhere right now. Cabrera is no where near the type of player Renteria, Jeter, Nomar or even Tejada is. They're gonna fall flat on their face. This will be their downfall.

I was in SHOCK. it is a HUGE mistake
Can you explain your reasoning? Or at least try to. I would like to some comments.
The Red Sox wait half the season to get him back. And then just when hes starting to get going they get rid of him. I mean they kept counting down the day until he came back. And to get someone who 1. Ive never heard of and 2. who is NO WHERES near the cailberof Nomar is just stupid. Nomar gave his heart and soul to that team and I feel they just tossed him aside like an old sock.
Nomar didn't want to be there, he practically came out and said that himself. I think it was a smart trade even if Cabrera is nowhere near the caliber of Nomar. The Red Sox were smart to get someone for him while they still had a chance to.
He never said he didn't want to here. He never did.
No, he never did come right out and say it, but he did make it very obvious that he didn't want to play in Boston anymore. Since he's been with the Cubs reporters have said that he's so much happier, so I still think it was a good move.
