Good player with pop and can hit for a decent average....though he is a lefty. He is owed quite a bit of money and the only way I could see him being a fit is if the Dodgers ate at least half of his contract and wouldn't cost much at all in the talent department.

2013 $13,500,000
2014 $15,500,000
2015 $18,000,000
2016 $18,000,000
2017 $17,500,000
2018 age 36 $17.5M Vesting Option, $2.5M Buyout

Now that I think about it...he might not be the greatest fit lol...

He would be an upgrade over Duda.

we finally will have salary cap flexabilty next year I doubt he will tie up all those funds on a 30 year old OF.

Just doesn't make sense to make that move. If we are making a move for an OF it is probably a younger OF that is still on his first contract.

i was thinking about this earlier

are we that lefty heavy in players guaranteed spots

right now we have

SS tejada R
C D'arnaud (he'll be up by late may) R / Buck R
3b Wright R
1b Davis L

then, if Murphy is our 2b again, thats another L

then we have den dekker, duda, and kirk gunning for OF spots as L - ethier would presumably replace one of them

but then you have flores trying to break through some where as a R

If they resigned hairston and then brought in ethier and went w/ either den dekker or kirk in CF & I know its a long shot but IF they give flores the job at 2b, which i do think is a possibility, that would be 5 of 8 positions manned by righties
