Mets Seek Younger Outfield, Trade for Trot Nixon

| | Comments (5)

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.

Minaya is simply fortifying his CV for a run at the Mariners job.

The only thing they could do to look worse at this point is adopt the old White Sox short pants softball-style uniforms.

This might not be all that bad for the Mets, according to Trot, his bat has been blessed by Jesus.

But Trot increases a team's clubhouse "presence" by 50 widgets, or whatever the hell they measure presence with these days.

that vid made Nixon Trot into my heart
