    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.

    Big hole in LF and SS. Our pitchers may not like it.

    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.

    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.

    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!

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

    Re: P Doc: Brewers considering Josh Hamilton; Reds should too

    I was disappointed we traded Josh back then. I was less disappointed when Volquez won 18 games. I returned to disappointment when Josh won the MVP, thinking...what if. But thats as fruitful as wondering what if you'd have married your college sweetheart, pointless.

    None of that matters. I don't want him back.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Huge risk for any team.

    The Cards have Craig at 1st, Beltran in RF, though only for one more year. It would be an odd move for them to make, considering they were 2nd in the NL in runs scored. I doubt they spend $100M+ on Hamilton.

    Love the Hamilton story. Wish he'd have stayed a Red a little longer.

    Not interested in loading tons of cash on him, especially considering the injury history and problems (with some guys still on the roster) in the clubhouse the last go-around.
