Pawtucket’s the place

The good folks in Pawtucket tell me there are still tickets left for the coming games in which Trot Nixon, Jason Varitek and Alex Gonzalez play themselves back to good health. Trot is scheduled to play Thursday, Friday and Saturday, the other two guys Friday and Saturday. Thursday’s game is a 7 p.m. start, with 6 p.m. starts scheduled the next two nights. Check out for ticket info. It’s the last home games of the season for Pawtucket, who just signed former A’s and Cubs pitcher T.J. Mathews, 36, to a contract.
