    Hairston Deciding Between Mets and Yankees, Ben Francisco also an option

    Scott Hairston's agent, Casey Close, told Wallace Matthews of ESPN New York that he continues to talk with both the Mets and Yankees and that his client should make a decision on where he'll sign within "a matter of days."

    He'll choose pinstripes.

    If the money is the same, he'll likely choose whichever team offers the potential for the most playing time. That might be the Yankees because of the DH -- until ARod returns. More than winning, most players probably prefer playing rather than dressing each day and sitting on the bench. There aren't many PH opps in the AL. So, it's a bit of a toss up.

    I'm not sure I agree with this when you're are talking about an older player. Hairston knows he's who he is as a player (or should) and that he's not an all star. I would think that at this point in his career winning might take precedence, especially after a few years on the Mets. And while it hurts to say this, there is a certain allure to the Yankees for most players.

    This really should be a no-brainer for him.

    I really liked Hairston, if I we're him, I want to win and get money I'd choose the Yankees. If he chooses the Mets I would gain so much more respect for him. I hate the Yanks, I'd cheer for him.
    My team, my city.

    I think he comes back to the Mets because he wants to be a full time player, I think they are probably offering about the same money so he needs to decide does he want to play full time, or be a part time player for a "possible" contender

    He can hit 30 HR with the Yankees easily.

    I doubt that. He had a career year last year. I doubt he ever hits 20 homers again. We are talking about a 32 year old, 9 year MLB veteran who has been a 4th OFer for pretty much is whole career. You think those types of guys have 30 HR potential? Even in Yankee Stadium, no.

    I don't know, I think its possible. He'd get his fair share of playing time with the Yankees and look at Andruw Jones. He hit 14 HRs in less than 100 games last year. And at this point in their careers, Hairston is a few big steps ahead of Jones.

    If he was a lefty, then maybe.

    He would get more than 200 ABs playing DH a lot of the season and splitting time in LF and RF with Ichiro and Gardner being LH bats.

    I hope he comes back to the Mets. I've made it no secret that I like the guy, and we are so desperate for outfielders that he would actually be better than any single outfielder on our roster (and hilariusly, he would probably be the worst or 2nd worst outfielder on the Yankees).

    Isn't he looking for $5 million????

    Seems like a lot for a guy that doesn't fit into the future plans and who will not make much of difference this year one way or the other.

    We might be better off saving the $$$$ and giving some of the young guys a better look.
