Mets Never Made Hairston Any Offer
Adam Rubin of ESPN New York writes a column about how the Mets went about building their current outfield which started with a joke and ended with a joke in my opinion.
Rubin spoke with Scott Hairston who dismissed rumors that the Mets had made him an offer, but understood the situation and respected Sandy Alderson’s decision.
“There were times where I wasn’t sure what they wanted to do, so I waited. But as a player you can only wait so long, so I knew I had to move on and I had to move forward, and that’s just the way it was.”
Hairston, who was clear he wanted a two-year deal, did not get any offer from the Mets. Not even one year.
“There were reports that it happened, but the Mets never made me a one-year offer,” he said.
For what it’s worth, Hairston is off to a slow start and is batting just .125 in 48 at-bats with three home runs. But on the flipside, his replacement Collin Cowgill has already been demoted to the minors.
