    I see zero reason to not ride the hot bat. Let him hit while he's hitting.

    I'm shocked (shocked I tell you) that this thread has extended to a 3rd page!

    Hairston Jr's wearing #15, and we all should know what that means by now...the curse of "Foster not getting his uniform # retired" will do Jerry in

    Watch it! Remember a player who does not have the potential to hit 40HRs is utterly worthless.

    It was just a pleasant change of pace to see the leadoff guy get on base. This team could use more of that going forward.

    I was at the game last night and was impressed with Hariston. He hit the ball hard and got on base. I like it how whenever someone has a good night there are always people to put us who get excited back in our place. But if you take Hariston's previous couple of years before he was injured, yes injuries really do effect the way a player plays, he could really help the reds. The only thing I didn't like about him was the route that he took on the double that scored the Dodgers first run. Patterson catches that ball, but I doubt Freel or Hopper do.

    You can tell Hairston is locked in -- I think you could even see it in his PH appearance on Monday. He is a far better hitter than Ryan Freel at this point in their careers, in my opinion, and he should be in there while he's swinging well -- moving around the diamond, spelling different guys. Very nice AB vs Broxton to get his 4th hit last night.

    Hairston is already halfway to Phillips' season RBI total.

    Phillips just doesn't seem to wear cleanup batter very well, it just doesn't look good on Phillips.

    Jerry Hairston Jr

    Hairston has been a nice suprise this season.
    Is it that he has been healthy or just lucky?
    Why the sudden turn around at age 31?
    He certainly looks good at the plate. And he has a lot better smarts on the bases than Freel.

    Defensively he is a natural 2B. He has been filling in at SS but really doesn't seem to be more than an emergency SS. What do people think of his defense in the outfield? Whats wrong with Dunn-Bruce-Hairston in the outfield?
    Also I am curious - can he play 3B?

    it's because he can't hit RH pitching very well.

    but his track record says he will. His track record isn't terribly different than Bako.

    Hairston's bat has been pretty ridiculous. I don't expect it to continue, but again, ride that hot bat. He's done a pretty nice job offensively filling in for Kepp, at least thus far.

    I never really thought of him as much of a base stealer, but 10/12 ain't too shabby.
