Word from Gordon Edes is that the Red Sox are likely to offer arbitration to right fielder Trot Nixon. He'll be 33 next season. As Edes says, the retention of Nixon seems to indicate a Manny Ramirez trade is likely.
If the Sox do keep Nixon and complete the J.D. Drew signing, Jose Guillen will be pretty much the only decent remaining RF on the market.
