New York Mets outfielder Scott Hairston stayed hot last night with two homers to help propel the Mets to an extra inning win over the San Francisco Giants.  The 32-year-old drove in 3 runs as the Mets beat S.F. by a score of 8-7 and it appears as though he is  likely to stay with the team through the trade deadline.  Hairston is batting a cool .500 (7-14) with 2 HR and 5 RBI over his last 4 games.

Wile on the outside it appears as though teams in need of a quick offensive upgrade, especially those looking for someone to eat up left-handed pitching (which Hairston has done to the tune of a .307 avg and 9 homers in just 127 at-bats), the Mets seem poised to keep their prized signing from this past offseason.  According to Ken Davidoff of theNew YorkPost:

Hairston is likely to remain a Met by tonight because he’s unlikely to bring back a return significant enough for the team to jettison him. That’s because most clubs deem it unlikely that Hairston, who has a career of solid but unremarkable production and is 32, can ride this hot streak through the rest of the campaign.”

So even though teams would only need to commit minimal salary to a productive player who is making just $1.1 million this season and might be able to help make a Cody Ross like difference to a contender, the offers don’t appear enough to tempt the Mets front office to move him.

Hairston’s a fan favorite and if the Metsecutives are only getting offers involving low-level prospects then I’m all for keeping him and seeing if they can’t get him to return on a 1-2 year contract.  Even if they lose him this offseason I’d rather watch him swing out of his shoes for another 60+ games than see the team move him for a guy who is unlikely to ever see a big league field.
