It's not remotely a tough choice, in that Hamilton will demand far more in term and salary than the Jays are going to be willing to agree to, and Cabrera's limited window of good production came conspicuously in the 18 months before he got nailed for PEDs.

The answer is, neither guy is a good fit for the Jays. If you want to spend in LF, you try for Pagan, Victorino, Ross... or you look to shake a heavier bat loose with Arencibia. But it's nothing you *have* to do now, you can wait for a mid-season trade if necessary.
