Scott Hairston

Posted: 12/4/2012 3:13 AM

Scott Hairston 


Age 32

OF/2B

2012: Mets: 20HR/57RBI/.263

Does he make sense for 2013 &/or beyond?

Is he the Tribe's answer to LF?

biggrin

Not a fan -- IMHO the Left fielder will be Canzler or Carrera or a major league ready prospect obtained by way of trade in a Astro / Choo /CP / Masterson / Ubaldo deal.

At this point in time the best move would be that type of move where that LF can grow with our already young group of Brantley / Kipnis / Chiz / Santana. 

If the indians did not sign Loney at 2 mil with no 1st baseman in place for 2013 after wasting 3 mil on Kotchman last season there is no hope that they will sign anyone that will not be coming in on anything more than a minor league deal with a spring invite.

But this is exactly what I expected this off season.

^^^ And I thought I was negative on the Tribe's outlook going forward.

Are you saying you would have supported signing Loney?

Who's your 1st baseman going forward right now , McDade / Anderson / Canzler.

LaPorta is history once he was removed from the roster it was all over for him.

IMHO at least with Loney the price was within the indians wheel house at 2 mil. 

Personally I do not believe there is a logical answer here we will have to get very lucky on some level to get any type of positive outcome offensively or defensively out of the first base position in 2013. No answer on the horizon JMHO

I'd would have taken Loney and would take Hairston too. They'd be very nice role players.
