In case you missed it:
— Jerry Hairston, Jr. (@Therealjhair) December 12, 2013
If the Dodgers and Uribear can’t compromise (last I saw he wants a two-year deal, the Dodgers want to give him only one), maybe Mr. Hairston Jr. could be persuaded to come back and play third. That’s if they don’t want Hanley Ramirez to play there, with newcomer Alexander Guerrero playing what we’re told is his natural position of shortstop. Mark Ellis is still looking for a job, too. And then there’s the rather more intriguing idea of Kevin Youkilis, whose agent expressed a belief that he’d like to play on the West Coast.
How does one acquire a “natural” position, anyway? Doesn’t that really just mean “he’s played more games there than anywhere else?”
