Josh Hamilton

RE: Josh Hamilton
Yeah, the Tigers and Dodgers seem likely to me. The only reason for the Yankees to sign Hamilton is if Gardner is awful because of his elbow and I can't stand Ibanez or Andruw Jones in the outfield. But if Gardner is ready to go, then I want the Yankees outfield to be Gardner, Granderson, Swisher.

RE: Josh Hamilton
This might be a long shot but hear me out. The Mariners just freed up $16 million by sending Ichiro to the Yankees and they are moving the fences in at Safeco which should make it a bit more appealing to free agents. Might be a good fit, who knows.

RE: Josh Hamilton
I know that this is nothing more than a crazy, ridiculous, insane pipe dream, BUT hear me out. Terry Francona is apparently really interested in joining the Indians as manager. We had an awful season this year, and desperately needed a bat. We just freed up about $20 mil with the end of contracts for Hafner and Sizemore. I'm not saying it's very likely, but with a winning manager like Francona (if he takes the job), I think my Indians would immediately have to become buyers this offseason. I would love to see us throw a 3-4 year deal at Hamilton. It would sell seats like crazy, and create an exciting rivalry with the Tigers. I doubt it, but man that would be exciting.

Red Sox freed up a bunch of money this year too. I think he'll stay in Texas though.

RE: Josh Hamilton
As a Rangers fan I want him to stay. I think that there is a good chance that he will, given his church is here and he values his faith above all else. If he were to leave, I think that Boston will make a real play at him. They cleared up all of that payroll for a reason. Also, with all of those "fans" booing him like that, he may just want to pack his bags and leave. I just hope he realizes that the real Rangers fans would never boo him for being in a slump.

RE: Josh Hamilton
Here's a recent article from ESPNDallas writer Jean-Jacques Taylor called, "Josh Hamilton's Act Has Grown Old." http://espn.go.com/dallas/mlb/story/_/id...y-collapse

I'm wondering whether this is a sentiment shared by the Rangers fans. I'd love to hear your thoughts on whether his "act" has grown old and would also like to hear your take on his slump, removing himself from the line-up last week, etc. -I'm not taking sides here (in fact, I consider myself a Hamilton fan. I don't follow the Dallas papers, or hear the local talk radio to know what people are saying).

I don't pay any attention to J.J.T. or espn. I don't read newspapers or listen to the radio. But I don't think that Hambone's act has grown old. I did see his press conference after he had a relapse. He seemed genuinely remorseful. He must have had a good reason for taking himself out of the game. He probably thought that at that point that he was a liability to the team.

He is part of the Christian movement: I am Second.
