My Philly source is telling me that Josh Hamilton and the Phillies have an agreement in place #mysteryteamagain

Been rumored all day. Amaro always goes big. For three years I like it. Hope it's true.

GKJ 12-11-2012 09:59 PM

Were the Phillies really a mystery team this time? People here have been talking about Hamilton since March

Marc the Habs Fan 12-11-2012 10:13 PM

A guy in Harrisburg breaks the story?

Mike Emrick 12-11-2012 10:15 PM

It's been speculated about for hours by others

Krishna 12-11-2012 10:15 PM

Give us the championship.

Static 12-11-2012 10:17 PM

No way it's less than four with those guys.

MurrayBannerman 12-11-2012 10:26 PM

Philadelphia. The 2nd home of all Texas Rangers

Bob Richards 12-11-2012 10:45 PM

I love Hamilton and hate the Phillies. I'm crushed. :(

What happens when he goes in a 4-30 slump and the boos drive him to drink again?

It gets combined with a massive cheesesteak binge.

Kershaw 12-11-2012 11:27 PM

lol Phillies now field the most overrated team in history. Lee, Rollins, Howard, Young and now potentially Hamilton. Oh lawd.

We get it. You hate Philly teams. Bu that doesn't mean every player we have is overrated.

That's not true, I very much like the Sixers.

I also don't hate the Eagles.

I don't hate the Phillies either, it's just that they boast some of the most overrated players in the game.

He hates the Sharks and 49ers, too.

If the most overrated team in history has Halladay, Lee and Hamels, sign me up.

Bad News Bears 12-12-2012 02:36 AM

Well, I like watching Hambone, so heading to NL isn't great for that. But it's better for my O's, so I'll allow it.

Nothing overrated about Lee and Hamilton. Hamilton has baggage but that's about it.

GKJ 12-12-2012 07:42 AM

Don't think the Phillies are overrated in the sense that they are any sort of lock to win the division, but if this group has another World Series in them, they better get it done, like, now.

For sure.

"This group" of course meaning Utley, Rollins and Howard.

If I was him I would've tried going to San Fran...

Agreed. I thought a team and a market like that wouldve been a great fit for the player. Or a Seattle/Milwaukee/Baltimore/Toronto type destination.

Philly was right up there with Boston/New York/the Dodgers as places I thought Hamilton would steer clear of. If this signing goes bad, its going to go supernova.*


*if it actually comes to pass

How are Hamilton and Lee overrated?

It isn't even that the market may add more pressure. Him & San Fran are kind of a perfect match. Add him to Buster Posey & that staff, that's screaming 2peat
