Aside from the bullpen, the most frequently maligned aspect of nearly every Yankee team of the aughts was the bench. The excuse was often that the Yankees couldn’t get quality bench players because said players might have a chance to be starters on other teams, but that’s pure folly — [...]
Are we there yet?
In absurdly inconsequential but slightly amusing news, Scott Hairston and the Padres agreed on a one-year $2.45 million deal through salary arbitration, which means Scott will bring home nearly $500k more in 2010 than older brother Jerry, who spurned the Yankees for the opportunity [...]

When Nick Swisher was asked where Hairston’s [...]
Joel Sherman has the news. Hairston, 33, was acquired from the Reds, where he hit .254/.305/.397. He can play the OF—all three positions—and some IF (3B, 2B, SS). Hairston isn’t as fast as Gardner (not even close), but he offers some speed and is a good OF defender while his defense in the IF [...]
