According to a report from Ken Rosenthal, the Cubs are in agreement with Scott Hairston on a two-year contract. Rosenthal indicated the deal is pending a physical and did not report the terms. Scott Hairston was reportedly looking for a two-year, $8 million contract to which the Mets balked and countered with a one year deal for $2 million. That’s where it apparently ended. The Mets were hoping the decision would come down to playing time which was really all they were offering Hairston. That and the chance he wanted to remain in New York. None of that matters now. The Cubs have been looking for a right-handed outfield bat just as the Mets for most of the offseason. In Hairston they get someone who can play both corners and center field in a pinch, and he mashes lefties. The Mets have been playing the waiting game all Winter long with regard to the outfield, and now the market has dwindled to nothing. Outfield? What outfield?
