Might as well hop on the bandwagon and sign with the Jays

is there anyone here that would be surprised if the Yankees picked him up? Red Sox got money to burn, maybe the Rangers keep him...

He will not play for the lowly Cubs. Most likely the Yankees or Orioles, but honestly he could go somewhere random. He said where ever GOD takes him. Lol. He could go to the Phillies, they have the bankroll for him. Could also see the Tigers signing him and putting him in left field. Bat him 3rd, Cabrera 4th, Fielder 5th and Martinez 6th. I don't think he will end up going to the Phillies though just because he probably doesn't want to go to the NL. Orioles have talked to him and that would be a good place to play as a veteran and a large fan base. A team that is already good and a homerun hitting ballpark and team, good coach as well.

I heard the Mariners are making a strong run for him as well and it's also a beautiful place for his family to live. I personally would never go to the Mariners even though they looked much better in the second half of the season.

i would love to see him in baltimore next season, but i doubt it. didnt they want pujols too? even the cubs - for example - are losers, they have a big name. if he goes to detroit, holy garbage, what a lineup that would be.

btw what will the mets spend this offseason? $10?

Don't think he is a winning type player so please we don't want him here in Philly.

Boston. They said they are going to spend a lot. I think they need to make a splash move and that would be it.

Boston better address pitching ahead of anything else. Signing another hitter will sell out the park in April but won't help you contend in August.

Doubt he will end up in Boston. And yes they need some pitching before anything.

Not a winning player 

Best player of back to back world series team and should have won the world series for his team with that clutch extra inning homerun against the Cards but Nelson Cruz forgot how to catch a ball in RF

I don't know what's a more ridiculous statement, Josh Hamilton not a winning player, or Josh Hamilton going to Baltimore

Both are unfathomable.

Could you see hom going back to the Reds? They might win it all with him.

My guess would be Boston.. money is there for him and they've blown the team up and going to start over. Doubtful he goes to NYY... all the talk of getting under luxury tax and too many temptations for him. Won't be surprised at a mid market team picking him up either. Detroit rumors seem to have died down but Baltimore and Milwaukee have picked up.

On another note I see him as a perfect fit in San Fran but I can't see them meeting his price.

If he signs in the A.L. East I hope it's Boston and not New York. Red Sox have quite a few more holes to fill than the Yanks do, so his impact on divisional rivals won't be quite as big! :)

That would be awesome if the the Reds get him though....Votto and Hamilton?!?!

I really doubt Yankees. That place would eat him alive. The press would have a field day with this guy. He would outTebow Tebow.

I'm thinking Brewers. Lost Prince (But I eat like a King) Fielder, only lefty power bat they had. Have also handled jittery types like Zach Grienke. You want to hide from the press, KC and Brewers a good place, except KC will NEVER win.

Also, Gerry Narron, was Hamilton's personal keeper, is now a coach for the Brew Crew. Gotta be a level of comfort there. Hamilton never had a relapse while Narron was on the Rangers.

Boston is in a rebuild mode. Hamilton is not going to sign there and it makes no sense for the Red Sox either.

After the contract they gave Votto, I doubt it. They are already extremely good. All the NL playoff teams had great pitching and could have beaten any AL team IMO last year.

Whoever signs him should only give him a one year deal. He misses far too many games with injuries and he's a guy that could easily fall off the wagon at any time. He's a good player but his body is breaking down on him and he'd be a very risky signing for more than a one year contract.
