[Hamilton] hasn't played a full season of ball since 2007. I'm guessing he's significanly injury-prone, but a quick google didn't turn up much information.
I figure Napoli is still the plan. But Hamilton/Gomez isn't the worst backup plan ever. I like it better than LaRoche, certainly. You can carry a platoon more easily if one of the guys can do double-duty as a backup, and Hamilton has a little bit of flexibility there.
Is there another bat in the system that could be moved to 1B in preparation for 2014 and/or beyond?
Craig Breslow - $2.4MM (though, hilariously, MLBTR says Breslow and the team have exchanged numbers; the player's number was $2.375MM and the team's was $2.325MM... yes really)
"Breslow gets 2 years plus option with Boston. Guaranteed $6.25m. Max on deal is $10.15m. Pending physical."
That's... a lot for a LOOGY. 130 appearances, 122 IP last 2 seasons.
So they were trying both at about $2.4M for a year and then decided instead to do 2 years, at $3.1M per?
Proposed risk factors include, chemotherapy, alcoholism, excessive steroid use, post trauma,[caisson disease (decompression sickness),vascular compression, hypertension, vasculitis, arterial embolism and thrombosis, damage from radiation, bisphosphonates (particularly the mandible), sickle cell anaemia, Gaucher's Disease, and deep diving.[emphasis added, footnotes omitted]
I'd like this better if there were some kind of option for the Sox to keep him beyond 2013.
damage from radiation
Napoli has a degenerative condition in both hips. This is his maximum market value.
