That's something he's done to himself and I don't think any agent can fix it for him. The most I could see him getting is a 3 year deal at the most.

plus, hamilton, in a city with the most bars per capita? dont think that is something that would work well
as for the yankees: they are desperately trying to get out from under the luxury tax. every year, the penalties grow, but one year under the cap, and it resets
most likely, he stays in texas. but he could go to the angels, dodgers, or tigers
