    End of an era for the Indians, I always enjoyed watching Omar play shortstop, one of the best defensive shortstops in the history of baseball. Thanks for the memories at the Jake.

    have enjoyed the man immensely... I wish he would have landed with Seattle.. only so he'd be home with his family... but this is the next closest thing...

    Omar - thanks for sharing your greatness and letting us watch...

    Damn, I was hoping he would sign with the Red Sox. :(

    Good luck in SF, Omar.

    One of the true class acts in pro sports today. I'll miss him a lot.

    LoKyBuckeye I give up. This board is too hard to understand. Staff Member

    DAMN! Omar is a great guy and I hope he still has success in San Fran. I met him on a number of occasions and he was always very pleasent and seemed happy to have a little conversation.... even if it was stupid baseball questions. :)

    I'll never forget the play he made at short during game 6 of the World Series in '97. I've never seen anyone routinely use their bare hand to make plays like Omar did throughout his career. He's the best defensive player I've personally ever seen. Sorry to see him go.

    You should have been able to tell who it was, based on the response.
    That's a no brainer.

    The Giants should be dinged for shelling out 12M for Omar.

    Omar Vizquel for Felix Fermin and Reggie Jefferson has to be one of the greatest steals in the history of baseball.

    Omar is going to be one of those rare players that are going to be appreciated up here in NEO more and more as the years go by. We'll have another Belle, another Manny, another Thome. We'll NEVER see a guy like this in these, or likely any other parts. Ozzie Smith made the spectacular plays. Omar made plays look easy that nobody else could make. To me, without a doubt, the greatest defensive shortstop to ever play the game.

    AmeriBuck007 Honey, Frank the Tank is not coming back

    i think we should've resigned him for at least another year with all the talk about the hot bats of victor and ronnie omar actually ended up with a better average than both.. thats a heck of an accomplishment seeing as how he's usually remembered for his gold glove defense
