- He throws at least 225 innings in 2013.
- He isn’t on the disabled list at the end of 2013.
- He throws at least 415 innings total in 2012 and 2013."
I don't think he's likely to qualify for it based on the third criteria due to some missed games in 2012.
I would love him at 3 for 80 and would even be ok with a 4th year player option with a 10 mill buy out...I stated this a couple of weeks ago in a phillies thread.....5 years or beyond and I vomit.
With Upton out of the picture.. i expect Hamilton to go back to TExas
To win the division I think we need a healthy Halladay to return to being at least very good....That is why I want Hamilton so we do not have to put all our eggs in the halladay basket
To be honest I don't think the Rangers wanted Josh Hamilton. It seems like he's last on the list as of right now.
1. sign Greinke and trade for an OF'er to replace Hammy like Upton or;
2. re-sign Hammy and trade for a TORP like Shields
Think they preferred doing #1 over #2. Now that Greinke, Upton and Shields are all unavailable, think Hammy becomes their first priority. He has more leverage on the team now than before though since those other 3 guys are no longer options.
Because of the constant losing or just mediocre seasons, the Jays could never really draw a big crowd.
Winning is all that counts and Josh Hamilton doesn't provide enough for the Mariners to truly contend.
That's really premature on Bautista. He has just over 180 home runs, and he's already 32.
Stark tweeted last night that Hamilton is expected to sign with the Phils in the coming days. First reported the deal was 4/115 and then 3/80.
