    Would you take back the Josh Hamilton trade if you could?

    I wouldn't. Edi has been nails. Does everyone feel the same way?

    I voted no as well, but boy do I wish it was Dunn going to Texas instead of Hammy.

    Depends. Can we get him straight up for Griffey? Sure.

    Do we have to give Volquez back? No way.

    Enough Hamilton threads. Really.

    I misread the question and voted yes. Put me down for no on taking back the trade.

    Absolutely not. Have a lights out starter is certainly more valuable than a great hitter... granted im not sold Volquez will be our #1 or Hamilton will keep up his production/stay healthy, I think this trade was just a fantastic deal for both parties.

    I do still have fantasies of an OF of Dunn Hamilton Bruce though

    Enough posting in threads in which you're not interested in adding actual content. Really.

    Hamilton has more value in terms of to a team.... but finding top quality, young starting pitching that you control for a long time is tougher to replace or acquire.

    If the Rangers were interested in flipping Hamilton, what sort of bounty could they receive right now?

    I would rather have Hamilton. It's not even close IMO.

    Something less than Volquez.

    That's the cost of obtaining starting pitching.

    I think the fact that Hamilton was not viewed as a long term answer in CF (much like Bruce) made him available, as Bruce has RF locked up.

    A Dunn/Hamilton/Bruce OF would be great offensively, but below average defensively.

    What if it were Hamilton/Patterson/Bruce?

    That might be the best defensive outfield in MLB.

    Patterson isn't the answer to any question.
