Hairston seems to be the man for now.

Yep, for sure over Kennedy and looking at hairston's lineup yes, maybe also over Durham.

yes as a matter of fact I would. good possibility for 40+ steals hitting in front of miggy, raffy, javy, gibbons=maybe 100+ runs and he will prolly hit around .290. Not bad for a 2B not named Soriano or Kent.

I'd much rather have Kennedy. He can steal 20 bases, has the job for sure, and can produce in all the other categories. Durham is a little bit closer, but I still take him over Hairiston.

Can produce what, mediocrity?

Take Hairston. He will play all year. Roberts only played so much last year by default. Hairston will get the starting job for sure.

Hairston ain't going to hit .290. He's a lifetime .254 hitter, and has never topped .271 in MLB. Plus, he's never topped 30 steals at any level. He's not a terrible option, but you are wildly over-optimistic on Jerry, Justin.

you know i may be, but sumtimes thats how u win in fantasy baseball. He will steal over 40, he had 15 in like the first month and a half before he got hurt. Maybe not .290, but not .250.
