New York Mets
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Free agent Scott Hairston told ESPNNewYork.com on Monday he believed a reunion with the Mets was "probable."
Mets insiders actually feel similarly optimistic, although there are no assurances.
Many of the other suitors for Hairston are looking at him for a bench role, with pinch-hitting the primary responsibility. But after hitting 20 homers in 377 at-bats last season, Hairston desires a larger role.
