I'm not a stat-head, but his splits are easy to find here (http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/players/splits?statsId=6127&type=batting&year=2004).

In the past 3 years, Hairston has had 342 AB as a leadoff hitter. He's hit .266 with a .341 OBP in those ABs. He has also has a significant amount of ABs in the 2-spot and the 9-spot. He's had 185 ABs as a #2 hitter and 302 ABs as a #9 hitter. Hairston has also had some ABs as a #6, 7 and 8 hitter.

FWIW, those three year splits are thrown off a bit by a horrible 2002. In 2003, he had 173 ABs as a leadoff hitter and hit .295 with a .389 OBP. In 2004, he only had 44 ABs in the #1 spot due to Brian Roberts success and hit .295 with a .311 OBP.
