Hairston likely to rebuff Cardinals, re-sign with Mets

Posted by Scott Wuerz on December 4, 2012 

The Cardinals were rumored to be interested in Mets free agent outfielder earlier this week. But it looks to be unlikely that they'll be able to strike a deal with Scott Hairston.

According to a report from ESPN, Hairston said it is "probable" that he is going to re-sign with New York.

At least seven teams are believed to have expressed interest in Hairston. But reports indicate the Mets are the favorite not only because of familiarity -- but also because they have the most playing time to offer.
