Mets OF options besides Scott Hairston

The Mets have been linked to free agent outfielder Scott Hairston all off-season and so far, the two sides have been unable to agree to a deal. The Mets could use the offensive punch Hairston provided the team last season. The outfielder smacked 20 home runs – which was good for third best on the team – and knocked in 57 runs – which was good for a fourth place tie. It would...

Scott Hairston May Make the Evil Decision

Yankees, Mets vie for Hairston #NYM #Mets — Adam Rubin (@AdamRubinESPN) January 8, 2013 I am been trying to think about thinks from the player’s point of view, and I would not be surprised to see Scott Hairston make the “evil” decision and join the Yankees. Honestly, with the way the Mets are currently built, who can blame him? Although the walls have been brought...

Mets Willing To Splurge On A Multiyear Deal For Hairston

Updated by Joe D. on 12/21 A team source told Newsday’s Marc Carig that the team remains in position to splurge on one multiyear deal this offseason. That will most likely go toward signing a right-handed-hitting outfielder. With the makeup of the outfield market, the source said going beyond one year may be the Mets’ best avenue to “bring on a high-quality player.” Scott...

Mets will face competition from Yanks in bidding for Scott Hairston

One of the few bright spots for the New York Mets last season was the play of Scott Hairston, who hit 20 homers and drove in 57 runs despite getting just 377 at-bats. Hairston has been considered by most to be more of a lefty basher than viable everyday outfielder, hitting .286 against southpaws vs. just .239 against righties in 2012.  For the Mets, who hit just .246 as a team...

Scott Hairston: Wants Expanded Role, Will Cost Mets Much More

Anthony DiComo of, posted about Scott Hairston before the weekend who told him that where he signs after this season will be dependent upon getting more playing time. Scott Hairston started his 10th consecutive game in the outfield Sunday, a notable feat. Signed last winter to serve as a right-handed bench bat and platoon outfielder, Hairston has played nearly every day...

Scott Hairston stays hot, likely staying put at deadline

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...

Phillies announcer is irked by Scott Hairston’s ownage of Phils, to say the least!

New York Mets outfielder Scott Hairston has owned left-handed pitching this season, a fact that is not much of a secret around baseball.  The 32-year-old has hit nine home runs in just 105 at-bats against southpaws in 2012, a total that ties him with reigning MVP Ryan Braun of the Brewers for the NL lead in that category. Beyond Hairston’s success against lefties is his penchant...

Announcer's profanity-laden tirade on Mets OF

Warning: the above audio clip is vulgar, and not safe for work. Most Phillies fans I know really prefer the radio crew of Scott Franzke and Larry Anderson to the abysmal TV crew of Tom McCarthy and the rotating duo of Chris Wheeler and Gary Matthews. The above clip is a brief illustration why, as between innings, Franzke goes off on Scott Hairston of the Mets, a bench player who...

Scott Hairston: Professional Lefy Basher!

New York Mets left fielder Scott Hairston takes the kind of cuts that make you want to get out and swing a bat.  The hard swinging/hard hitting righty is a lefty bashing machine that has been paying huge dividends for the Mets in 2012.  Despite playing part time for most of the year, his nine homers rank second on the team behind only Lucas Duda.  After going 2-4 with a RBI against...
