Red Sox Hub Bub:
Nixon belongs in a Red Sox uniform. He needs to be reasonable, and Henry/Werner/Lucchino need to stop playing lowball games with Sox mainstays.

"I don't think the door is already closed (from the Sox' point of view), but I don't know how far it's open. That's something the organization and my agent will talk about...The contract situation is out of my hands and in God's hands. That's the only way I look at it. I may have a lot of options. I may not have a lot." -Trot on staying in Boston

Nixon on Thursday was named along with his wife Kathryn as winners of the Ernie Tavilla Award, given for a demonstration of outstanding character and leadership on the field and in the community by Athletes in Action New England, an interdenominational Christian sports ministry.
This has not been Nixon's best year, he acknowledges. He was hitting close to .300 for most of the year before a right biceps strain knocked him out of action from July 30 until Sept. 4. Since then, his average has been steadily declining. He was at .270 before last night's game.
'My confidence hasn't been all there, and it's not the uncertainty of next year. I just haven't been feeling good at the plate since I came back,' said Nixon. 'Anyone who doesn't have a contract wants to go out and play well enough to force someone to give you a (new) contract by being healthy and having a good season. But that will take care of itself.'
For now, Nixon will just be trying to get through the last two games.
Nixon, the Sox' first-round pick (seventh overall) in 1993 after a standout high school career in Wilmington, N.C., isn't ready to call it quits in Boston just yet. He will prepare himself to help the team win these last two games because, above all, he has been a team-oriented player in Boston ever since manager Jimy Williams stuck with him during a rough start to his Boston career." -PROJO
