What about trading for Michael Young, give nothing for him, pay his whole salary, hope he rebounds and then flip him?

He doesn't want to leave Texas ,, Wont waive his NTC

And he will only probably waive to go to a contender which the Cubs are not even close too

True I just think he's about to be staple gunned to the bench in Texas.

Excellent, love loaded power pens, everything Theo does, I would do. It's rare and so much fun when that happens as a fan. I'm not thinking about one, I'm thinking one for the thumb, the man is a god damn genius.

Yankees looking into Hamilton's past in case his price drops, which is very possible since the Rangers have made it known they'd rather bring in Upton instead of re-upping Hamilton.

I wonder how much his price would drop...

Me too. If 4 years / 100M gets it done, that's a steal.

4 years is really pushing it. Would rather give him a few more bucks a year, in exchange for a 3 year deal. Maybe something like 3/75 with some incentives.

To expand on this, they would have to be PLAYOFF based incentives. Don't care if he hits 40+ bombs if we barely win 75 games. Could bring in Adam Dunn to do that.

These Sporcle sports quizzes can really derail your productivity.

Doing college basketball conferences. Got all of the ACC, B1G and SEC with team nicknames in around 2:30.

He wouldn't come here if it was completely playoff based. For 3YR/75M, I think you'd have to give him bonuses like 2M for each MVP, 500K for each top 5 finish in MVP, 500K for each allstar game, 500K for each playoff appearance, 200K for each playoff series MVP.

Well, what you just described is pretty much playoff based.


Doubt he'd have a legit shot at MVP without at least having us in the playoff race. A Hamilton-Rizzo-Soriano-Starlin core lineup would be a damn good lineup.

**** him, I have no interest in him. He'll be 30 before the year is over, and wants a 100M contract. Too much for a guy who has ZERO power, and relies on speed.

Yeah, after thinking about it, MVP was the only one I could think of that wouldn't affect his play. That's why I made that the biggest one. If you gave him bonuses for homers, it could affect his approach so we wouldn't want that.

I know that, but I couldn't think of them when I was doing the Big 12.

Of course the Mayor would come back to bite me in the ass.

Yea Iowa State is an easy one for me too. I used to like to watch Seneca Wallace play..he was exciting. I thought he'd be a better NFL player though.

Although when those Sporacle quizzes are going on and the timer on it is a lot harder to think of things usually know.

The Bears starting quarterback one is always good for a laugh.

I had a pause on Georgia Tech and Minnesota's nickname, but I just couldn't think of Iowa State at the time.

Both. Totally spaced at the time. When they came up I had 2 minutes left and I just couldn't think of them.

Looks a lot like Greinke will end up in Texas. Hamilton would have a good shot at going to Seattle then. Unless the Yanks move Granderson, Bourn would be floating around without any real prospects.

Hahn is taking calls now on De Aza, Viciedo, and Floyd.

Wants to add a lefty bat.


There's your Hamilton destination
