    There is no way a healthy Hamilton will turn the Red Sox into a serious championship contender. He's not a value fit at all!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I posed the question in another thread if Hamilton would take a 3 year deal at 30M per, would you do it...Personally, I would...

    You wouldn't tie up money for a long time and I think with a couple precautionary clauses in the contract, you can expect good production till Hes 34 and a safety net in case he reverts back to his old ways.

    Re: Sources:Josh Hamilton looking for 7/175

    Picking up Hamilton scares me for a whole bunch of reasons.

     

    First of all, Hamilton himself is a HUGE risk.  I don't mean to beat the guy up for his past transgressions, but those transgressions are there and one can't help but wonder how the atmosphere in Boston would play into them.

    Second, any contract he might be interested in is too much money.  Yes, the Sox have money but that's not a reason to squander it.  If the FO has $90MM kicking around either spend it on a proven pitcher (I know, nobody like that available) or spread it around on position players. 

    Third, a contract like the ones speculated on would hamstring the team for multiple years.  Didn't the FO learn ANYTHING in the CC/AG debacle? 

    And fourth, I see this as being a bridge year anyway so don't pay a lot of money for a player who's age tells you that he's going to go downhill every year. 

    As much as I'd like to see him in a Red Sox uniform, he's a bigger risk than I'd take on.

    Let's just say that Hamilton has become the poster child for drugs in baseball. I have a hard time believing that he's the only one who's doing or did drugs in the MLB, and I doubt it's a big secret as to who the others are. Why they just talk about JH, I don't know. Is he from Texas or something?

     Good luck with that.

    This is from Dallasnews.com:

    http://www.dallasnews.com/sports/texas-rangers/headlines/20121103-report-rangers-josh-hamilton-wants-7-years-175-million-in-free-agency.ece

    Josh Hamilton is hoping to find a team to pay him $175 million over seven years, a source told Baseball Prospectus' John Perrotto this week.

     Ross is starting to sound better each day.

    Well, if Boston can be patient, they could get Josh if they just wait until mid-Dec to early January cuz no one wanted him.  Boston could ended up asking him for a lesser deal.  But I strongly think Boston cant do that cuz if they do, then Boston would lose out others for other position.

    Just try to resign Ross or sign Ludwick, Napoli, get a good starting pitcher, etc.  Make one good trade.  Then they are good for next season.

    Detriot were lucky last year where no one want Fielder, and suddenly Tigers swooped in and got him.  Tigers could have try to sign him for a lesser deal.  I do not know why the world they still ended up giving him a big fat contract!!

    The Prince Fielder signing came late most likely because several teams were interested and Scott Boras was patient enough to let the bidding rise to nine years at $214 million.

    No offense, but what is your first language?

    (for what it's worth, your English is better than my Spanish)

    I'm all for big money as long as it is short term as well.  I just think with the new TV contract, there will be some teams willing to give him something at least in the 5/120 range.  Maybe Detroit, Atlanta, Milwaukee, Baltimore, even Texas.  There will likely be a few surprise teams as well.  I can't see a realistic scenario at all where the Yankees go over the cap this year, especially for a guy who may not be a great off the field fit in "the city that never sleeps."

    Hamilton should expect teams to be looking for protection in his contract.  This could be done with a deal that has a number of vesting options based on games played, or an opt-out for the team if he misses x number of games because of anything related to his substance issues.  Hamilton will need to take on some of the risk himself.

    Let's have a guessing game.  Which team do you think will sign Hamilton?  

    My guess is Seattle.   

    Then again, I'm sure none of us predicted Toronto to sign Clemens during the winter of 1996.

    He'll be a Yankee. He's probabably salivating over that right field.

     

    If Granderson can hit 40 homeruns at 310 feet (high school distance), Hamilton could hit like 60+

    [/QUOTE]   The Yankees aren't bringing in another 100 million plus position player, especially one with lots of risk.  They have to address Cano and centerfield after 2013, and they aren't going over the cap for next season, as it is horrible business sense.

    i saw the same thing. 30 mil might be too much but i would definitely consider it. especially with security clauses

    Ray Charles survived his Seattle heroin addiction, but native sons Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobain succumbed (at least in part) to their substance abuse.
