What I hear coming out now and even before from Boston journalists is that Nomar is a loner and some journalists (aka Buckley, Shaughnessy, Callahan, et. al) thought that was a negative for the clubhouse. So far Buckley, Shaughnessy, Callahan, Massarotti, et. al have made me ask the question: Why does everyone think that being the loner on a team makes you the "Weakest Link" or "Mr./Ms. Negativity"? Is being a loner really that bad?
In my opinion being a loner is not a bad thing at all. It doesn't mean you're a negative presence.
I just wanna hear other's thought's on the subject.
