Found July 30, 2012 on Mets Merized Online:
Well ladies and trolls, it’s that time again! It’s July 30th and that means all those last minute wheelings and dealings will get done, maybe with the exception of our New York Mets. Anyway, here’s the latest on your Amazin’s as the deadline approaches: Quite A Bit Of Last-Minute Interest In Scott Hairston: Team such as the Tigers, Giants, Braves and Rangers have been linked to Scott Hairston, but as Ken Rosenthal tweets, the Mets may value him more than other teams do. Many teams see him as a right-handed bat off the bench or a platoon guy, while the Mets see the 32-year old as a near-starter over the next two months. As we saw however last week, the Mets were considering moving Hairtson because they were afraid he would become “too pricey” once he hits free agency this winter. Hairston is making $1.1 million in 2012, but multiple sources indicate that Alderson is leaning towards holding onto him. Byrdak Market Ice Cold: According to Andy Martino, there is absolutely no interest in...

Powered by Scott Hairston.  The Mets clutch killer against lefties is about the only thing I am sure the Mets are getting calls on.  The Mets don’t need to unload him since the return will be nominal.  Catcher Kelly...

Two clutch Hairston homers give Mets a wild win in S.F.

SAN FRANCISCO -- Scott Hairston's name was floating in rumors as the days melted away before the trading deadline. But as the days turned to hours, the New York Mets were certainly thrilled to still have the veteran outfielder.

Alderson On Trade Deadline, Keeping Hairston, Being Competitive

At 4:00 PM today the trade deadline came to and end with nary a move from the New York Mets. As the song says not a creature was stirring not even a mouse…. We weren’t buyers, nor were we sellers…. We were what you’d call not-so-innocent bystanders. Life goes on. In a conference call at 4:30 PM, Sandy Alderson faced the music and was as well prepared as a high-priced lawyer...

Mets trade dead line update… less then hour to go…

The Mets might have been able to move Tim Byrdak to the Redsox who were looking for a lefty.  No dice since it looks like Breslow is heading to Fenway.  Gaby Sanchez who has had a rough year with some time in the minors for the marlins has been sent to the Pirates.  Cubs and Tigers are working on a deal. No not Dempster,  Soriano might be going to the Tigers while the Cubs still working on

Hairston homers twice, Mets beat Giants in 10th

Brandon Belt thought he might have hit a game-winning homer when it left his bat. Instead it landed in Jordany Valdespin's glove a step or two in front of the center field fence. ''The heavy air comes in out there and just knocks the ball down,'' Belt said. ''Can't really do anything about it.'' Scott Hairston hit his second homer of the...

Mets Fear Hairston Will Be Too Pricey To Bring Back In 2013

Updated 7/28 3:15 PM Buster Olney of ESPN tweets that the Texas Rangers also have interest in acquiring Scott Hairston, but so far there’s nothing happening and nothing to report.

According to beat writer Andy McCullough,the Mets would...

Trade Deadline Looms: Will Mets Make A Deal?

The MLB trade deadline is 4:00 PM EDT today, and as things stand right now, the Mets most likely will won't make a trade. It has been rumored that there is interest in Mets fourth OF, Scott Hariston, who only raised his trade value with two HR's last night in San Francisco, giving him 14 for the year. There was also alleged interest in the Mets lefty reliever Tim Byrdak...

Going Out, Perhaps, With a Bang Bang

Well, Scott Hairston did his part. He not only hit two home runs (off righties!) against the Giants on Monday, including the go-ahead home run in the tenth to give the Mets an 8-7 victory, but he has set himself up to bring back as much haul as he possibly can if a desperate team were to call Sandy Alderson before four o'clock today. And if that desperate team does call, Sandy...
