Re: P Doc: Brewers considering Josh Hamilton; Reds should too
Wow! Sorry, I had no intention of starting a firestorm.
I do think Josh Hamilton has AT TIMES been treated unfairly in the media. And I fully understand the frustration when he misses games with ailments that many of us would go ahead and work through (although a sinus infection would make me pretty useless).
I do not wish to rehash the "Trade." I am on record as to my opinions in far too many threads on the subject.
If the Reds could sign Hamilton to a two year deal with a club option for a third year, that would be super. However, you can be sure Hamilton is looking for a longer deal. I might go three years with a club option for a fourth year, but I would think long and hard. Still, an OF of J. Hamilton, Stubbs/B. Hamilton, and Bruce would be a productive group for the next 2-3 seasons, both offensively and defensively.
Opinions are like belly buttons. Everybody has one, and they don't want someone else's shoved into their face.
