    How exactly does his bat struggle here?

    Is there any scenario where anyone can come up with where he'd be willing to waive that no trade clause to come here (assuming we put together a viable deal)? Maybe a Josh Hamilton signing?

    I think Smoak is an interesting piece, we're definitely in rebuilding mode. Maybe a change of scenery would help some... And while I like Capps and Pryor quite a bit, I think the Twins would be focusing on starting pitching, we only have Worley and Diamond that are capable starters at the moment. Gibson needs 2 months of AAA most likely and May needs a year, Meyer needs a year and a half of AA/AAA.

    beavan? keep in mind there are alot of FA pitchers.

    i think if we got hamilton we'd value morneau higher, maybe paxton/maurer, i think another spec would need to come with tho.

    Ya there's a lot of free agent pitchers, but it doesn't sound like the Twins are willing to pay the inflated prices so it looks like they are looking to trades. Would Erasmo Ramirez and Smoak be too much? Paxton, Smoak, and Brad Miller are the 3 most intriguing names from Seattle that I think could be possibilities...

    Armstrong's point about not having exchanged figures with Hamilton yet is largely semantics, writes Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times, because they've talked enough to hammer out a deal quickly. As it stands now, Hamilton's agent is waiting for Zack Greinke to sign, because the Rangers are unlikely to sign both.
    well damn...

    me too. its crazy. the market has froze up for hamilton, swisher, bourn... pretty sure we are getting 1 of them, outside chance of 2. never know who might be lying in the weeds tho, and hamilton could pull an about face.

    what is frustrating is the hand TX is playing with, in on greinke w/ mutual interest, upperhand with hamilton, and specs to get upton.

    i wish hamilton would stick it to TX and sign with us and start a domino affect to get a couple other nice players. than dodgers land greinke and philly get upton.

    Well, lets hope Greinke goes to TExas and Hamilton heads here and blows Greinke up every time they face each other.

    Ken rosenthal reported the m's offered 3 years 20-25 million a year. Alot cheaper then I anticipated.

    I forget which radio show it was i think Brock and Salk but the insider said the reason Upton has us on his no trade clause is because he doesn't hit well at Safeco.


    Just about that action boss.

    The Mariners have discussed three-year deals with Hamilton in range of $20MM to $25MM per season, a source tells Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports (via Twitter).

    He will get more then this when all is said and done and 1-2 more years.

    That's weird considering he's only played 3 games here:
