Only In America: The Jerry Hairston Jr. Edition | Sharapova's Thigh

The swing of a $2 million man(Psst... Jerry, the field's THAT> way.)

I just noticed this tweet from Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal, who actually provides some useful information when he isn't hating on bloggers:

Hairston expected to get more than $2 million. Likely will play all over.

That's Hairston as in Jerry... Hairston... Junior! That's the deal he's signing with the San Diego Padres. Millions of dollars for a utility man that has a career .701 OPS(it's much worse if you take away his 2008 and 2009 home games at Great American Ballpark, which might as well be a Little League field) and will be turning 34 in March. What a country!

I'll give it to him though- Hairston is one of the best in the history of baseball at hitting foul balls down the left field line. He'll keep the Petco Park attendees seated in that area a huge part of the action.
