  1. Everybody weigh in on this. Hamilton for 3-4 years or Cano for 7-8?

    • who do we have playing 2B in this scenario if we pick hamilton?

      • Who do we have in RF right now and next year when we lose Grandy and will need two OF’s?

        • Booo I ask a question and you come back at me with a question. hahaha..

          Honestly for as much as I love Cano. I’d lean towards the Hamilton 4 year deal. But it would have to mean Grandy is traded.

      • Good question Matthew S., if possible I would bring up one of the players from the farm and give them a chance to compete for the job. By doing that one must watch the numbers closely…if they are reasonably close to his farm numbers +/-, I would believe he maybe more than a flash in the pan. Of course once he gets to the Show he will have to adjust to the pitchers or, end up in AAA.
        One thing I have never understood is, if a player is hitting real well in A ball then goes to AA and adjusts to it and repeats his good hitting /fielding, Why must he spend 2/3 years in AA-AAA? They seem to think the players aren’t ready until they are around 24-25, before even thinking about bringing him up for a look-see. Maybe the talent report they have is much more concise than the one everyone else gets, well we know that is true…I have seen them (about 5+ pages of stuff, maybe even when you wet the bed last).
        A lot of words for one little answer but, I am on a roll! lol :)

  2. Matt– for me hamilton easy do not want an extended contract for Cano at age 30+ or anyone!! do the longer term at at 25ish running to 33 or so. Yes to Hamilton then keep looking thru trades. Grandy to ? for youth. Still willing to overwhelm for Stanton.
