I absolutely agree that Hamilton is better equipped to be a corner OF soon and I'm sure that he will be at some point in his impending deal regards of where he signs. There's nothing to say that we couldn't sign Hamilton today and use Halladay/Utley's money next season on Ellsbury. We're not far from those two being done... or at worst, considerably cheaper than their current respective deals.
Sorry, but I don't really agree with your line of thinking. The Phils have an indefinite window because they have a massive payroll. What they need to avoid is foolish spending.
