All this crap about the risk on Hamilton is so overblown. There is risk, but its because hes been somewhat injury prone, not him becoming a drug addict again.

He got a lot of flack last year, still hit 40HR..
I think both are overpaid but I agree, the drug thing is overblown. Everyone was so worried when Cabrera was playing drunk. I remember after a story came out Yahoo fantasy originally had him ranked 1 and dropped him to 9. Just an overblown, dramatic story that the media does.
