Mets - Acquired Nixon
New York Mets - Acquired OF Trottington Nixon from the Arizona Diamondbacks for future considerations.
Nixon was terrible for the Indians last year but he was hitting quite well for Tucson and the Mets are desperate. Desperate probably doesn’t even cover it, desperate was back when Endy Chavez decided this was a good season to not hit. I don’t know the exact word to describe the Mets situation, but considering that they were already on Fernando Tatis, they’re about two steps from frantically calling Danny Heep’s agent.
As bad as Nixon was in 2007, he really was a fine hitter at one point and if he’s actually fully healthy, this could turn out nicely for the Minaya and Randolph in their frantic attempts to keep their jobs. I don’t have the full-on ZiPS Supercomputer handy at the moment, but I have Nixon at 253/349/379 for the rest of the year, which the Mets will take.
