    P Doc: Brewers considering Josh Hamilton; Reds should too

    Daugherty admits it is a pipe dream and a huge risk, but that's what the offseason is for.

    He'll most likely replace Lance Berkman in St. Louis.

    Let hamilton play short in an easy chair ... he's entitled to do whatever he wants, per Dunn and Griffey.

    And that's what I get for doing five things at once, including booking Thanksgiving airline tickets. I hope I didn't just accidentally reserve three seats to Nepal.

    Nepal is supposed to be beautiful. I'd really want to go. Have a great thanksgiving.

    The pitchers just have to not let hitters pull the ball.

    I can think of a lot of players I would splurge on this offseason. Josh Hamilton is not one of them.

    One thing - or is that two - that Milwaukee offers is the Brothers Narron.

    Good point, although I imagine any team that signs Hamilton could easily pry he Narrons away from the Brewers.

    Yeah lets give a player who was bad after June and who is a huge injury and character risk a truck load of money in a small market!

    Great plan!

    Post All-Star break he had an .833 OPS. Not exactly what I'd call "bad," especially for a premium position.

    It's debatable as to whether it's worth the risk but let's not exaggerate the circumstances.
