Trot Nixon: The original Dirtdog, Trot Nixon, has a new home again next season. The Milwaukee Brewers have signed Nixon to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training. Nixon started the 2008 season in the Diamondbacks organization before being traded to the Mets. In 11 games in the Big Apple, he hit just .171 (6-for-35) with 1 home run and 1 RBI before undergoing season-ending hernia surgery. [Brewers Blog]
