RE: Josh Hamilton
I very highly doubt Hamilton will get any kind of long term deal from any team. He's a great player but too high maintenance. 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.

And his age is another reason not to get a long deal.

yea, that's never stopped the yanks from giving someone a long term deal that will cripple them for the last 5 years of the contract... (looks at the yanks corner infield positions)

Yeah, I really don't get why they do that. If they go after Hamilton, 3 years, no more.

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

Agree. I think the Yanks are going to have their version of a rebuilding year. They might try and keep Ichiro, but i think swisher is gone. Going to try and cut some of the extra fat off. Unfortunately the "fattest" is arod and i don't think hes going anywhere.

Hamilton and Arod together? doesn't sound like it would mix well...

I'd rather get rid of A-Rod and keep Swisher.

No, Cashman would do that, sadly.

RE: Josh Hamilton
Either by trade or by Free Agency I think a really big name is coming to Philly. Maybe not Hamilton but if the Yankees eat most of the contract I wouldn't be shocked to see Arod end up here to be honest. I think Amaro has an itchy trigger finger and will be looking to make a statement this offseason.
