    Must have been a fake twitter account because he actually tweeted that he hasn't heard anything about The Phils signing Hamilton.

    Thing was completely made up by Gargano at WIP.

    I think Hamilton signs with the Yankees for 4 years with an option for 5. This will only happen if the Yankees trade Granderson for some young talent. If that doesnt happen then he will sign with the Mariners.

    So it's premature to call Bautista a superstar, but he's really old? It seems like your brand of logic is leading you in different directions.

    For what it's worth, up until the time of he got injured last season (and missed around 50 games at the end of the season) he was tied with Josh Hamilton for the major league lead in home runs. He also lead the majors in the previous 2 seasons, and despite that injury causing him to miss some games last season he still has more than anyone else over that time span, 12 ahead of Miguel Cabrera.

    Here's how he compares to some of the other best players in the game over the past 3 seasons.

    Code:
    		GP	HR	AVG	OBP	SLG	OPS	wOBA	wRC+	fWAR
    Jose Bautista	402	124	.271	.400	.593	0.992	.419	166	18.2
    Albert Pujols	460	109	.298	.375	.550	0.926	.388	148	16.4
    Miguel Cabrera	472	112	.334	.420	.604	1.025	.428	171	20.6
    Joey Votto	422	 80	.321	.434	.564	0.998	.425	167	20.1
    Robinson Cano	480	 90	.311	.370	.539	0.909	.387	142	20.1
    Ryan Braun	461	 99	.318	.384	.563	0.947	.405	156	19.9
    Josh Hamilton	402	100	.313	.370	.583	0.953	.401	147	16.8
    So no, it's probably not too early or too late to call him a superstar.

    Well if he meant that Bautista isn't HOF bound he's right, but Superstar yeah, Bautista is one.

    Bautista is like a better version of Adam Dunn imo.

    Bautista has the power and the OBP of Dunn but is a better pure hitter and better fielder than Dunn.

    I don't understand the Dunn comparison at all. They both hit home runs, but other than that they're completely different hitters. It's like saying Sabathia and Dickey are comparable because they both are pitchers who play in New York.

    I'm more talking about the results.

    Both have loads of power.

    Both have very good-great on base percentage.

    Aside from 1 year, both don't have a high average.

    It's just aside from maybe OBP, Bautista is a better overall hitter and fielder.

    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.
    I get what you're saying, but even after they whiffed on Greinke, they still went after Upton? I'd understand if they wanted pitching first, and then pick up a replacement outfielder in Upton, but that didn't happen. It seems to me they're not interested, but I could be wrong.

    You heard it here... in a shocking move, the ANGELS will sign Hamilton out of nowhere.

    They will then trade Bourjos, catching prospect Hank Conger to an unspecified team in exchange for pitching prospects.

    Predicted that back on page 2.

    If there's one owner happy to have bad contracts, it's Stan Kaston.

    Oh and that Arte Moreno guy too.

    If he wants to get paid and doesn't care where he plays why not, the marlins will pay him play him for a season and then deal him for prospects to a team that's desperate, it actually makes sense.
