    The importance of a lead-off hitter

    With everyone talking about Adam Dunn and if the Reds should re-sign him maybe we should be talking more about re-signing Jerry Hairston Jr.. The Reds are 20-10 when he starts and 26-39 when he doesn't. I know he is 32 years old and not as good as he is playing right now. I also know that he is a Career .260 hitter but as it has been stated before injuries played a part in that. So, I do feel he is good enough to be the short term answer to our lead-off troubles with ability to put up a line of .285/362/420 I mean if the Reds are willing to pay Corey Patterson 3 mill for a year surely Jerry Hairston Jr is worth 2-3 mill for 2-3 years.
