Any word on when he is set to return? He's on my waiver wire and I just put Chipper on my DL - wondering if he's worth a pickup even to keep on my bench for a while.

LMAO!

I love it! His name is Trot. A "Tort" is "a wrongful act done willfully, negligently, or in circumstances involving strict liability" either that or a cake.

That is funny. I thought it had something to do with Tricky Dick and Watergate.

I am anxiously waiting Trot's return myself. I think he will add the needed depth I have been missing. Hopefully it does not take him too long to get back in form....

WOW, thank you for such great feedback on an obvious typo.

Do you have any idea when Mr. Nixon will be returning to the Boston lineup Benson?

There's nothing better than a typo. No offense, but that just struck me as funny.

I would have answered your question but I just didn't know the answer off hand.

Seems like early May.

Here are the latest two updates from SportingNews:

April 25, 2004 - 9:46 p.m.
Nixon, who hasn't played this season because of an injured back, is to face a pitcher Monday for the first time since getting hurt.

Fantasy Source spin: At least this is a step in the right direction for him.
------------
April 24, 2004 - 3:38 p.m.
Nixon took batting practice against minor-league pitchers, the Boston Globe reported. Nixon could be close to going on a minor-league rehab stint.

Fantasy Source spin: An early May return continues to be the timeline for a return.
