When Rick Monday rescued that American flag in Dodger Stadium many years ago, he was a Cub at the time. Not long after that he was wearing Dodger Blue. He had to. He was a hero.

Everyone knows by now of the heroic exploits of Nomar and his uncle in saving the lives of two women in Boston Harbor. It has been well documented. But no one has surmised what this means for Nomar’s future. The free-agent is a beloved icon in Beantown already. Might this incident be the lynchpin to get him back in the organization? Especially since Edgar Renteria didn’t exactly live up to expectations.

What do ya think?
