I know they like draft picks, but it's not like many of these guys actually make it.
As a fan, I rather watch Josh Hamilton play over Victorino & Napoli every day of the week, and he also makes you better. Especially at the years and dollars being talkd about. If we were talking 6, 7 , 8 years at 20 plus I's so no.
Again, i think their goal is to put the best team on the field that won't subtract from building a young, strong team for 2014 and beyond. Napoli and victorino fit that. Hamilton would be a big addition, but he'd cost you a high 2nd round pick, #40 i believe. That could turn into a big piece going forward and i don't believe they want to sacrifice that for someone that doesn't satisfy their biggest which is an ace.
