Hostile *** thread
There are times for that, and there are times to punt. This team:
1. doesn't have a lot of youth ready to help this year
2. doesn't have a lot of tradeable pieces that we don't need to compete
3. are facing a meh FA class, with other teams with lots of needs and lots of money. You don't seriously think we will get the lion's share of this group?
4. Our 25 man roster has lots of holes - and #1-3 won't be enough to get this team up over 90 wins in 2013, and even if it does, we won't win the WS. I'm calling it today.
I don't give a **** about political correctness - or second chances for 10x losers. This is my team, and its budget and reputation. I want nothing to do with Hamilton. I gave my reasons. Accept them, or not. Yesterday you seemed to accept them. I'm sick of talking about a guy that isn't coming here. Bring him up in post addressed to me again, and I promise I will be far less polite.

I thought we settled this yesterday. I don't hate Hamilton the player or the man. I do not believe in him as a risk in Boston for my team. I have ample experience to have that opinion.Lastly, why are you glad im not the Gm. Is it because i don't hate him like someone people do here and hold his past against him. I never once suggested we sign Hamilton for 5 years and 175 mil. I clearly said we should offer him a 4 year 135 mil with an option for a 5th. Furthermore, i said if we could put a clause in his contract if he relapses, but the MLBPA would never allow that.
So wait? BC should be fired if he doesn't sign a heroin, alcohol, and caffeine addict? You mean vitriol? I'd love to sign the guy, and here is how:Ben Cherington needs to do his due diligence on Hamilton. He is an elite player and if ben doesn't, he is not doing his job and should be fired. I finish up by saying by me saying/wanting the Red sox to sign Hamiton because i believe he would make our team better, and me not holding his past against him makes anyone wish i wasn't the Gm.I'm glad im not. I hope we sign Hamilton now because of the vitol going against.
2013-2017 $9M per + $9M for 525 or more PA's per +$5M more if 650 PA's.
And an immediate breaking of his contract if he tests positive for any banned/illegal substances plus alcohol.
Show me that contract, and I'd advise BC signs it.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — While the Red Sox have continued interest in free agent Nick Swisher, an industry source has indicated the first baseman/outfielder may wait until fellow free agent Josh Hamilton agrees to a deal before signing with a team.
Though the Red Sox signed catcher/first baseman Mike Napoli to a three-year, $39 million deal on Monday, the move has not taken them out of the running for Swisher, who hit .272/.364/.473 with 24 homers and 93 RBI last season for the Yankees. \
He makes the j-bay of old look like Frank.
If you don't have nothing good to say about someone, please keep it to yourself.
