Yesterday, Ken Rosenthal started a bit of fun by quoting Jerry Hairston:

I’m well aware I’m the only guy on the market that can play anywhere and I’ll make a decision within 24 hours.

Apparently he wasn’t kidding, though not in the way you might have thought. According to Chicago radio host Bruce Levine, Hairston will be joining Nomar Garciaparra on the pre- and post-game shows for SNLA, and this is a pretty great thing all around. It’s nice because Hairston has been known to be a friendly, eloquent player should be a lot of fun on the air; it’s better because he was so obviously cooked last year that this takes him off the table for a possible playing role. Still, he had a good long career, playing for approximately 87 different teams, and this is a nice way to enter retirement.

Between Hairston, Garciaparra, and Orel Hershiser, the Dodgers have been doing a hefty amount of work in adding former players to the broadcast team, which is good — the Winter Meetings have been a snooze so far.
