Scott Hairston isn’t going anywhere

Jul 31, 2012, 11:32 AM EDT

In a world where Reed Johnson is part of a fairly major deal, you figure a guy like the Mets Scott Hairston could go someplace too, but it seems not:

 

Obviously Hairston wouldn’t bring that much in return, but he’s he’s slugging .537, he’s a free agent after the season and the Mets aren’t going anyplace.

I could see not dealing him because nothing good seems to be in the offing because of it, but it would be kinda strange if the Mets are not even shopping him.

    The signs still point toward…

    I wonder what signs Jerry looks at when making these pronouncements; is it the sky? perhaps the moon? the tides? tea leaves? inquiring minds would like to know.

    very shortsighted on Sandy’s part if they keep him. He’s priced himself out of their free agent range of league minimum anyway.

    Package deal him with Wright to the Phillies for Victorino and Polanco and we’ll throw Pence in too…..Sarcasm for the clueless. If the Mets don’t throw a boatload of money at Wright they’re dumb, this obviously as a Phillies fan. He’s a beast and one of my favorite players, even though he’s a Met. He deserves big bucks killing it like he is.

    I think that with Bay doing nothing, Duda back in the minors, and Torres hurting again, there might just be no way to move Hairston without slipping below a certain level of competence.

      A certain level of competence? This team is horrible. Get what you can for Hairston & let Valdespin play his position, or bring up someone from the minors. This is exactly what happened last year with Reyes. For some reason management thought they were going to be able to keep him for years to come, and ended up letting him walk away with nothing in return. Everyone on this team should be shopped right now except for Wright.

        The Mets received 2 comp picks for loosing Reyes (35 and 71). The deals offered for his services just couldn’t beat that. Mets had some bad luck in that the Marlins also signed Heath Bell, whom ranked higher then Reyes, and didn’t get the higher draft picks.
