    Jerry Hairston Jr appreciation thread

    Not a game thread, just a thread appreciating what Hairston has done in his tenure as a Red.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    I'll take some more bad routes in CF for some hits. He's definatley provided the spark the Reds needed.

    You've found your new Jorge Cantu.

    (BTW: Tonight's performance has probably guaranteed Hairston at least 3 weeks of PT)

    I'm saying, he could pull a Patterson for the next 2-3 weeks and still keep living off this opening game performance.

    Say hello to your new everyday CF and leadoff man, until he starts sucking (which I am sure he will).

    He did more tonight than Castro did all season.

    So far, so good. However, I remember the spectacular 1st game back for Neon Deion in 2001. I am taking nothing for granted!

    Nice night with the bat but I hope we never see him in CF again.

    Because after looking at his career numbers, I'm going to say he doesn't keep hitting like that.

    Great game tonight though, just what this team needed

    That was definitely a strange moment in time.

    Even Jason Ramano had a few good games in CF...
    "In our sundown perambulations of late, through the outer parts of Brooklyn, we have observed several parties of youngsters playing 'base', a certain game of ball. Let us go forth awhile, and get better air in our lungs. Let us leave our close rooms, the game of ball is glorious"
    -Walt Whitman
