The only reason we would get Hairston is so that our 2013 OF is a little less pitiful looking and maybe eases the fans frustrations a bit in the FOs eyes. I dont see a big enough difference I'd rather savior the money or spend it on someone younger
I hear you but who do we have in the minors that are a part of our future plans. Let's not fool ourselves with the Mike Baxters of the world. Baxter is about as much a part of our future as Hairston is. I'll take Hairston and his 20 bombs until we acquire somone younger and better.
