So, Josh Hamilton might've played his last game as a Ranger last night...
There were reports earlier this year that the O's might go after him hard this coming offseason. If true, how far would you go in years/money.
Or would you avoid him with a ten foot pole. Thoughts!?

I would avoid him

Did you see Matusz blow three straight fastballs by him?
One at bat, small sample size, whatever ... that's not a $25+ million per year player.

Three years, max. I know that won't get it done, but I'm not willing to tie five to six years into a player like Josh Hamilton.

Edit: Correction, it was Buster Olney. My bad.
This was from an article back in June. Of course, a lot has changed since then.

3 year 50 million. Take it or leave it. Otherwise, I am spending 1 year 8 million on Melky. OR I am sticking with McClouth. In that order.

I agree with Gordo. He'll be too expensive for what he'd bring to our club. I like our outfielders, and rather use the money for a starting pitcher or 2B or something...

@jonmorosi: Regarding boos, Josh Hamilton referred to Bible verse about shaking the dust of a town from one's feet if he is not wanted.

I know it got mentioned on the broadcast last night, but I'm really disappointed in Texas fans taking their frustration over the team out on Hamilton. It came off as really classless to me. Not as classless as, say, throwing garbage on the field during one of your greatest player's final game... but still, pretty awful.

I'm happy with Reimold and McLouth in LF/4th OF to start next year with Avery and Hoes at AAA (yes, I know this means we need to resign McLouth).
If we are going to spend a bunch of money, it should be on tier-1 or tier-2 starting pitchers. Edwin Jackson, Peavy depending on health, Greinke, etc.
I'd rather save this year's FA money for a run at Cano next offseason.
