Joel Sherman is reporting that the Yanks have acquired Jerry Hairston. Sometimes it's the small moves that put you over the top. In this case, we're talking a big move. Follow the math. Hairston is blah, whatever. But this means that Cody Ransom is likely heading out. As I so painstakingly taught my fifth grade class this year, if you subtract a negative number, you're actually going in the positive direction. The more negative the number you subtract, the more positive the move! It's a shockingly difficult concept to teach, actually.
