The Pirates have inquired about two more free agents, super-utilityman Jerry Hairston Jr. and pitcher Daniel Cabrera.

Hairston, 32, is coming off a career-best season with the Cincinnati Reds in which he batted .326 with six home runs and 36 RBIs in 80 games, this after having made the team in spring training off a $500,000 minor league contract. His .384 on-base percentage was well above his career figure of .330 and towered above his 2007 figure of .249.

He can play any position in the infield or outfield, including shortstop, where he spent 34 games with the Reds this past season.

As attractive as that article makes Hairston sound, his 2008 season was largely a product of the Great American Bandbox and luck. Check his splits:
