Say it ain't so!
I don't know why, but I always had this idea that Jerry Hairston would end up back with the Yankees at some point. Dude was here in '09, won a ring, played well, and would be a one-man bench to fill all the key spots the Yanks have. Play a little backup third base to A-Rod, little backup first for Teix. Play some left field or right field on days when Swish and Gardner need off. Shit, could probably cover Jeter at short in a pinch. And now that's all gone because the fucking Dodgers, who I thought didn't have an owner, a GM, people that cared, or even any money to spend this offseason, locked Hairston up to a 2-year deal. I thought it was a sign when the Brewers brought him in this year. A sign that I was meant to watch Jerry and Jerry was meant to be where I wanted to watch him. But I guess I was wrong. Damn.
P.S.- Ken Rosenthal breaking this story makes me hate Ken Rosenthal more than I already do.
