I'd be happy to see Hairston return, but I don't know how much his value will rise if Ludwick and Ross end up signing in the 7 mil range. I'm guessing at least 4-5 mil, 2+ yrs.
Hairston may have priced himself out of NY (Mets), with his 2012 season.
Unlike Ludwick and Ross, Hairston has proven he can hit 20+ playing in Citi.
It'll be interesting to see how much the Mets value Hairston's bat and what they'll do if don't re-sign him.
Yeah Joe, just like Wright huh?
..add that to the fact that both have been pretty open about the desire to remain a Met.
Why didnt they shop DW?
He's being shopped because his value is at an all time high and trading him would be worth more than actual dollars spent on FA.
He'll eventually be signed to an extension here.
