How next year with Hairston in CF leading off, Bruce in RF and AGon back at SS this team will be set if they get a RH bat to replace Dunn. Amazingly, they got 1 of 4 options correct. And I'm afraid their thinking might be the management's thinking, too.
I agree with you on Hairston.
Lets hope and pray that Walt agrees with us more than he does with Marty and Jeff.
