Fwiw, I can't even think of 3 teams that I think should sign Hamilton.
Rangers and phillies? But that's really it off the too of my head. If he comes down into a 3 year range, then he starts to make sense for more teams.
The heat ..I honestly think the yankees just because they havnt done anything and let swisher n possibly ichiro walk
I'd take him on the Phils for 3 years and a vesting option for the 4th...
And it really wasn't a bad contract nor a bad time. We were coming off an 85 win season and needed a 3rd baseman. I'd say it was pretty smart at the time
I don't remember anyone predicting it to turn out how it did.
i bet he signs on the dotted line
I have no idea where he'll sign. Doesn't seem like a good fit anywhere.
Its gonna be interesting where ever he signs. I am predicting Texas as 1, Mariners as 2, mystery team as 3.
I'd give him 4 years if I were the phillies. My feeling is that is what it's going to take. Unless the reports of the M's wanting him badly are true and they take it 5th year. As Jeffy has so kindly pointed out in this thread M's just don't make a lot of sense.
Props to Fly-Eagles-Fly for the Sig
With Texas losing out on Greinke, I expect we hear a deal about Hamilton heading to Texas within the next 3-4 days.
