rare case of a team needing right handed sock
They could do their due diligence on Michael Bourn who, by the way, struck out 155 times in 2012.
it has some appeal but the reds already have a fair amount of lefty power
Only Phillips remains obviously, but I wonder how well Hamilton will fit in a clubhouse where Votto is clearly the lion.
um, what about the pitching??
The Reds are signing Youkilis, right?
Man... I still wonder if that 2008 team would disappeared in the playoffs if Hamilton hadn't been just given away back in 2006.
if theo wasn't signing prince i don't see how he ponies up for hamilton
fielder was much lower risk all the way around. and with fielder that's a big around.
i hear a guy in new york might be available.........
Frazier's likely to give them the same production, isn't even arb eligible for 2 more years, and isn't about to turn 34.
My "reasonably priced FA acquisition" target for the Reds is Pagan
Actually, this sounds good to me. switch hits, plays centerfield relatively well, gets on base at a decent clip, won't cost $20 million a year.
The Reds dealt him for Edinson Volquez, a trade that is just a few floors and a fast elevator from Manhattan-for-beads and Robinson-for-Pappas.
I was not a fan of the trade when it was made, but it wasn't that bad.
Repeating from one of the A-Rod threads, though -- I don't think I'd do a Soriano-ARod swap even if the Yankees equalized the money (meaning, the Cubs essentially paying A-Rod the 36 million they still owe Fonsie with the Yankees footing the rest). If the Yankees were to eat a little more cash... say -- the Cubs pay A-Rod 30 million -- or, if the Yankees were to toss in a lottery ticket or two... OK.
This is crazier than saying the Cubs "gave away" Hamilton.
This is crazier than saying the Cubs "gave away" Hamilton. Do you project Soriano to be more valuable than A-Rod over the next 2 seasons? Do you project A-Rod to be worth nothing after 2014?
Frank and Brooks Robinson
Andruw and Chipper Jones
Billy and Josh Hamilton
They could try to coax Milo out of retirement for the hat trick!
