Trot's Back in the Bigs With the Mets

The Mets acquired longtime Red Sox fan favorite Trot Nixon from the Arizona Diamondbacks organization for a player to be named later last night. Trot had been playing at AAA Tuscon since the start of the year, where he was hitting .309, with 10 HRs and 31 RBI in 58 games.

Nixon's acquisition is a good move for the Mets clubhouse, who could some of Nixon's legendary fire and enthusiasm. And it's great to see him return to the majors. And another "One of the 25" is back, and this time with the Mets.

I'll be at the Mets-Rangers game tonight, and it will be great to see another 2004 World Series champion on the field, as Pedro Martinez gets the ball tonight against another ex-Red Sox pitcher, Kason Gabbard.

For more on Trot's move to New York, go here.

Welcome to New York, Trottah. Glad to see The Original Boston Dirt Dog back in the Bigs.

It's Shea Stadium Replica Night at 7:10PM, with Pedro on the Mound and Edward Trotman Nixon in RF:

His hat will oxidize in the Rare Shea Air;

Gabbard? Knowing the Mets, they might be in trouble
