Espn lists Jerry Hairston as a member of the White Sox Roster... not only that but in his profile his birthdate is February 16, 1952, which would make him 52 years old. I guess his age is why he's listed at DH, probably his defense has slipped and he can longer play 2nd or the outfield.

Probably KW will talk Ozzie into benching Thomas or Konerko next year in favor of a 52 year old, with 3 years of MLB experience and a career OPS of .757

But seriously, the Sox should take a look, maybe we can match up with the Orioles for a trade. Hairston has a .371 career OBP in limited playing time, and was on his way to his best season when he injured his ankle and lost the last month and a half of the season. He would probably help jumpstart the offense with his speed and the ability to take a walk once in a while.

Hairston Jr.'s dad used to play for the SOX.

I know that much.

So yes. Jerry Hairston is a White SOX.

Someone said to me it might be Deferred Salary still being paid. Hes not listed anywhere else.

EDIT: I'm not really sure, but thats what someone suggested to me.

I think Hairston Sr. is a coach in the Sox minor league system.

I've heard that too about him. See, Magglio saw that list and he knows what Jerry's "back-heavy" contracts could be like.

I can not believe someone mistook one for the other.

I think this same thing happened at ESPN's website last year; listing Jerry Hairston as a 50+-year-old member of the Sox. Who knows? :?:
