We all know the season is officially over, what with the Opening Day loss to the Royals on Monday, but still, baseball will be played.
Lost in the wake of the Sox season imploding before our very eyes since we currently are 0-1, which means we have NO CHANCE of making the playoffs, is the play of one Christopher Trotman Nixon.
Now patrolling RF for the trendy pick for 2007, the Cleveland Indians, Trot has started off the year 5 for 9 with three doubles, 2 runs scored, and 1 filthy Chief Wahoo hat.
I could not be happier: I hope he has a monster year for the Indians and proves not only to Red Sox management, but to the fans as well that he still has plenty of fight left in him. Nobody plays harder or with more passion, and his professionalism and heart will be missed in Boston this year.
May 28th: Indians visit Boston.
Can you imagine the scene for THAT standing ovation?
