When I saw the March 5 cover, my first thought was, Whose body did you attach to Nomar Garciaparra's head?

The Nomar cover arrives the same day he injures his wrist? Would you please stop cursing my Red Sox.

Nomar? Omar? A-Rod? How many rings have they won? None. Unless one of them is traded to the Yankees—to play third base—that's not going to change very soon. Four and counting. Go, Derek!

I just read Rick Reilly's article about Chris Gatling's trade woes (THE LIFE OF REILLY, March 5). Reilly says that Chris threw the first staying-in- Cleveland party ever. Mr. Reilly, I live in Cleveland, and I throw a staying-in- Cleveland party every night.

Every two weeks Gatling picks up his check. Each one is at least double what I make in a year. I tried and tried, but I couldn't bring myself to feel sorry for the guy. Not even a little.
