I was insanely excited to land both of these dudes... especially after those stale years from 1990 through 2000... with the exception of the miracle year in '98.

They thanked us for sending Nomar. (They were so friendly that I thought they were hitting on her at first. In Boston we don't even make eye contact on the T).
