The 25-year-old was hitting just .188 with the Quakes in 21 games. He was drafted out of Florida State, converted to catcher, and had a great debut
To answer the headline: hell yes! He was awful this season and, unsurprisingly, Ned Colletti was fooled by Mike MacDougal's sparkly 2011 ERA.
MacDougal signed a 1-year contract this winter and got a guaranteed $1 million ($650,000 base salary, $350,000 buyout). And what did the Dodgers get out of it? Not much: 7.94 ERA, 2.65 WHIP, 14.3 H/9, 9.5 BB/9.
So if you have been following the Dodgers at all this year, you’d know that Jerry Hairston Jr. is slowly becoming something of a folk hero, sort of like A.J. Ellis but not quite that awesome. Unlike Ellis, Hairston’s heroics have primarily been defensive, as he has starred again and again and again on the
