    Aside from his Reds debut, Hairiston has been great at Louisville.

    Jerry Hairston Jr., age 31, is your current batting leader in the International League. His current line is .421/.450/.721 for an OPS of 1.222. He has one steal in two tries. Certainly this is due to small sample size....at least to some degree.

    However, Hairston has hit 3 HRs, 7 doubles, and 2 triples in 57 ABs in Louisville this year.

    Might this be another Keppinger situation where WK has picked up a strong player for nothing? Supposedly Jerry has been playing hurt the last few years. We shall see how long his hot hitting continues.

    He said that he hadn't been healthy for two years. Perhaps he is now, wouldn't that be sweet.

    Lil' Jr. may exceed some expectations, I know during some ST and minor league interviews he has stated he is healthy for the first time in years. Let's ride this wave for the time being.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    I've been saying this for a couple weeks - get him up here. He's a vet and he's riding a hot bat - and with a veteran player that is likely to carry over. With a rookie you have no idea.

    You play him until he cools off. If he truly has turned a corner because of poor health the past couple seasons that's great but its something he'll have to prove to me by hitting over a long period.

    One thing's for sure - he's sparked the team tonight.

    The 2001 return of Deion Sanders has been mentioned as a "do not too excited too soon" about the great 1st game.

    http://www.baseball-reference.com/bo...00105010.shtml

    Some parallels... :

    * Deion's game (like Hairston) was against the LA Dodgers.
    * Deion had multiple hits... one extra base-hit and the rest singles (like Hairston).
    * Deion had three RBIs in the game (like Hairston).
    * Deion stole one base (3rd). Hairston stole 3rd base.

    One more thing...
    * One of Deion's hits was a HR... off (starter) Eric Gagne. Almost 7 years later Gagne gave up two HRs (Edwin/Bako) on a Cincinnati mound.

    LOUISVILLE (AP) - Cincinnati Reds farmhand Jerry Hairston Jr. was found in his Louisville-area apartment today, bound and gagged with duct tape in the bathroom. Police were dispatched to the area after neighbors complained of banging and loud noises in the apartment that should have been empty. Jerry Hairston Jr. was supposed to have flown to Cincinnati yesterday after being called up by the parent Reds team.

    In what is being described as an unrelated story, fellow Louisville Bat Jay Bruce has not been seen in 2 days.

    Agree with you jojo BUT it would be really helpful and not outlandish to see Jerry put up a career year.... say .293/.364/.407 good enough to help but not especially remarkable - but then I fear they'd extend him and "old" Jerry would sure be back next season to balance the statistical scales.
