Nomar Garciaparra spent eight and a half years in Boston before being traded to Chicago mid-2004 season. He spent the next year and a half with the Cubs.
The Cubs kicked off last week with a three-game sweep over their divisional foes in the Cincinnati Reds, and concluded by dropping three of four to the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The boos started for Edwin Jackson in the first inning, once Matt Kemp launched a 96 mph fastball that almost cleared the top of the left-field bleachers.
Jorge Soler felt a sense of urgency watching Yasiel Puig’s all-out style with the Los Angeles Dodgers.
