We are fooled by the comparison to what we have, we will chew off our legs to be rid of him when he reverts back to the player he is.

This screams of a signing just to make a signing.

Agreed. I never liked this guy. No idea why we didn't trade him last season.

I gotta agree...the guy's OBP was .299, which is abysmal. He hits 20 HRs and people act like he's an MVP candidate. He's like Rob Deer, except he gets on base less and hits less homers.

What would Mets have gotten for him? Was there even any interest then? How many teams lining up for Hairston now as FA?

Yup. So they would've gotten bupkis for him in a trade.
