Lost in all of this Willie Randolph hemming and hawing is the recent arrival in the Mets outfield: youngster Trot Nixon! He'll replace the ancient right-fielder Moises Alou on the ol' depth chart. Late Friday night, GM Omar Minaya obtained the young prospect from the Diamondbacks triple-A club in Tucson in exchange for cash and/or players to be named later. Kid went 2-for-3 with a double and 2 walks in his Met debut Sunday but then had a sad 0-for-4 outing.
Wait a minute...this is the same Trot Nixon from the Red Sox? The same washed-up 34-year-old who slugged .336 last year for the Indians? The same guy who inspired this treacle?
Farewell and adieu to your season, Mets fans.
