Throwback Player Of The Day

Trot Nixon 

Doesn't get much better than Trot. One of the rawest players not only in his play, but his look. He had the dirtiest helmet filled with pine tar, tobacco spit, and dirt. His hat was covered in chalk from the base lines and you could see his sweat stains surrounding his head. And how can I forgot to mention his fu manchu. 

2001-2004 were his glory days with the Sox as he hit 85 home runs and had a .282 AVG. during those four seasons. Trot was also a part of the "Idiots" in 2004. A team that will go down in Red Sox history as one of the greatest.
