News: Mets Acquire Trot Nixon

Following tonight’s game, Omar Minaya announced the Mets have acquired OF Trot Nixon from the Diamondbacks for cash or a player to be named later.

Nixon was batting .309 with a .437 OBP, 15 2B, 10 HR and 31 RBI in 181 at-bats for the D-backs Triple-A Tucson affiliate.

He hit .288 after the All-Star break last season, and reached base safely in 67 of 98 games.

…i like the move…i will like it even more if he replaces Robinson Cancel on the roster…

According to Minaya, Nixon will join the team tomorrow and be ready for the game.

i like this guy…he’s a tough, hard-nosed player, who can hit from the left side, who was won in the past, and who’ll play solid defense…but, most importantly, he’ll bring a little grit that i believe this team is need of
