Bob Ryan: Tip of the (Dirty) Cap to a Returning Favorite

"Dirt Dog is what he is. And it was awesome to see someone that deserved the recognition get it. I think he'll always be one of Boston's own no matter where he ends up in his career. Trot was a damn good player. I think people kind of underestimate how good he was. He had a problem with being hurt because of the way he played. He wouldn't have been the special player he was if he didn't play that way, so it was awesome to see and I was glad to see them [fans] acknowledge him, I'm just pissed that he got a hit." -- 5.29.07, Curt Schilling in his WEEI appearance on Trot Nixon's return to Fenway
