Yankees In “Serious Talks” With Hairston

The Yankees are in serious talks with free agent utility man Jerry Hairston Jr., according to a tweet by ESPN's Chris Singleton. New York has "serious interest" in Hairston, and would use him to spell Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez, as well as possibility platoon in left.

Last night we heard that there were five teams interested in Hairston, who's hit .281/.343/.432 in 730 plate appearances over the last two seasons while playing six positions. He finished the year as a World Champion with the Yanks.

Hairston is a helluva utility man, and I never realized it.

That’s not a half-bad slash line.

Even if he doesn’t hit, he’s still a good utility man.

I’m just sayin’, if he can keep a line like that, he could easily fit into LF and bat ninth, and no one would notice.

You won’t win championships because of Hairston, but you can sure lose without a guy like him. Sign him, Ca$h.

This is the most logical choice. Platoon Hairston and Gardner in left until Gardner fully develops.
