IMHO, i would take a Josh Hamilton over an Adam Dunn any day of the week.
Dunn struggles in more areas than he excels in. Hamilton is a 5 tool guy.....enough said.
Actually, Hamilton has six tools if you count the crack pipe as a tool.
I know, I know, but seriously, he was (and still is) a major risk to relapse and has always been injury-prone. This is one of the few instances where the front office did the right thing and sold high (get it? Hamilton? High?).
After Dunn's failure to run over the tiniest catcher in baseball Sunday, though, I finally don't give a crap if they don't extend him.
