Dodgers, Hairston Jr. Talking Two-Year Deal

The Dodgers are in talks with Jerry Hairston Jr. about a multiyear contract, tweets SI.com's Jon Heyman. Heyman cautions that nothing is done yet, but says the two sides are discussing a two-year deal for about $6MM (Twitter link).

The Dodgers, Brewers, and Giants were rumored to be interested in Hairston. Earlier this afternoon, we heard that the Giants are no longer pursuing the veteran utility player.

    Really? ANOTHER backup infielder? With all this money spent on backup infielders, they could of went all-in for Reyes!

    • Hairston played 42 games in the OF last year. He’s a much better pickup than Kennedy or Ellis.

  3. ned coletti is determined to take jim hendry’s spot as dumbest GM

    What was the point in giving Adam Kennedy a roster spot then?!

  5. Kennedy, Ellis and now Hairston.. -_____-

  6. Someone needs to start Ned on a 12-step program. He’s addicted to bad infielders.

    JHJ, come back to MIL! We want you back!

  8. After this signing I can only hope that the Cardinals tend contracts to Theriot and Schumaker..

    I feel like suicide is the best thing for me right now. Oh Colletti how you have put all of us Dodger fans in depression.

    Billy Hall
    Juan Castro

    …and if he’s willing to come for only a two-year deal, Edgar Reneteria.

    Ellis deal was putrid

    Kennedy deal was useless, but reasonable

    Hairston on more than a spring training invite is insane, who needs to pay role players real money?  

    Ellis
    Treanor
    Loney
    Ellis
    Kennedy
    Gordon (has upside)
    Uribe
    Hairston

    That could be the worst offensive infield I have ever seen on a Major League roster.  

    From that entire group there is not 35 HRs…

      Yeah, but Capuano and Harang will give up 35 hrs!

      You know the infield (C-1b-2B-ss-3b) sucks when rookie Dee Gordon and James Loney are the bright spots!  I think Gordon can go .250-5-40-40 and Loney .290-12-90-10.  The rest, I am thinking a .200 batting average.

    I’m not a real NedCo apologist,  but with what he’s been given $$$ wise, signings not so “jump off a cliff” as most are making it out to be.  Treanor may only be around for 1st 3 mos til FedEx comes up so that’s no real big issue, and rather of kept Miles vs. Kennedy, but other than that, nothing to step in front of a train about here.  Like last year, if you count Eovaldi, LA will go into ST with 6 starting pitchers.

    For the cost of Capuano, Harang, Ellis, Rivera, Hairston and Kennedy, we surely could have instead kept Kuroda and Carroll.  I have no problem with a “one year and done” arbitration deal with Loney because before the change in ownership a big upgrade at 1B was not an option.  I would rather go with Kuroda and a minor leaguer than spend good money on Harang and Capuano.  Rivera will not be a major upgrade on Sands, Ellis and Hairston are fooolish expenses to join Uribe, Schmidt and Andruw Jones on Colletti’s resume.  I can live with Kennedy as the 23rd guy on the roster at $1 million, but I think Sellers would be his equal.  I am happy that the Dodgers are committed to Kemp and Kershaw.  I do think that Ethier, Billingsley, Guerra and Jansen have talent, and Loney can hit .290-12-90-10, which would be fine on an otherwise good team, just lackluster power for a 1B.
