    He isn't worth a 4 year contract in my opinion; why do you think the rangers won't even offer him more then 3 years?

    He is injury prone, a drug addict who has relapsed, also add in the Yankees are trying to get under 189.

    I advocated Josh for two reasons:

    1- He creates a huge revenue stream. Huge.
    2- The entertainment value for us fans would be insane.

    No thanks to Josh, that's my opinion. But I won't argue it any further. He's not worth it in my opinion. That is all.

    He would be wildly popular here with kids and fans. Huge money maker. Will sell tixx and create a buzz on an otherwise boring team.

    Texas is run by fools on a credit line. Whole roster in its prime and they haven't won crap and won't win crap.

    No to Hamilton. 30's, injury plagued, mental problems, alcohol/drug problems, 100+ million.

    I'll give it too you, he's the third most marketable player in the MLB, Behind Derek Jeter and Mariano Rivera. Report shows.

    But I don't care. I still don't want that train wreck on this team.

    I haven't seen enough of him to give a fk, but what I have seen would be a damn blast as a fan. We would all go nuts for him.

    Mammoth Home runs. Partying relapses. Hot broads.

    What more do u want?

    A guy who isn't injury prone. Going to go into his decline years. Who is commanding huge money?

    Yankee's really try to consider themselves a classy organization. Outside of some stupid A-rod things, they pretty much do a good job of it. Do you think they really are going to try to bring in a drug addict? Really?

    It could be a negotiating tactic by Texas. Just because he wants 7 years 200m do you think Texas is just going to say "ok". Not at all. Texas has the upper hand because he isnt going to get that many years. Texas knows that. Josh probably knows that as well. If anything, Texas will meet in the middle. I can see Texas going 5 years.

    Yeah, the best way to replace a player is with an oft injured, drug addled, superstar. The kids love that sort of thing.

    Cash money!

    Playoff shares were announced Monday morning, and the Yankees awarded 58 full shares worth a cool $115,065.28 each. Each LCS loser is allotted 12% of the $65.36M pool. That $115k+ is a drop in the bucket for stars like Derek Jeter and CC Sabathia, but it’s major cash for guys like Chris Stewart and David Phelps. A full share for the World Champion Giants was worth a bit more than $377k, breaking the previous record held by the 2006 Cardinals ($362k). The Tigers earned $284k each for sweeping the Yankees and then getting swept by San Francisco.

    That still seems like a long contract for Hamilton.
