Seattle Mariners general manager, Jack Zduriencik, plans to upgrade the teams offense this offseason but as of now does not plan to pursue Josh Hamilton, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports. “You have to be realistic about how you're going to allocate your dollars,” Zduriencik said. “Some of these things drag out and if you're sitting there waiting on one chip, other chips in front of you might go away and you end up with nothing.”
Reports surfaced early November that Hamilton was looking for a seven-year $175mm deal which would possibly put him out of Seattle's range. The team has other holes to fill and committing that much money to one player who is injury prone would not be a wise move.
last season in 148 games, Hamilton hit .285/.354/.577 with 43 home runs and 128 RBIs.

After reading of the Phillies reported interest in Josh Hamilton, my mind began to wander. Admittedly, like most fans, I would love the idea of another power bat in the lineup that has the potential to have a major impact on a team that struggled all season to score runs; but I began to wonder if Hamilton is right for our team. While I have no doubt that the Phillies are performing...

There are conflicting reports about whether the Sox will go after Josh Hamilton. Cherington has praise for him, but says they're looking at all options.It's a classic free agent gamble, because he reportedly wants seven years and $175 million (he's 31), but it also has the twist of Hamilton's history, which is famously checkered. And it's certainly interesting...

So far this offseason, Melky Cabrera, Miacer Iztures, and Bartolo Colon have gotten contracts while Anibal Sanchez, Kyle Lohse, Zach Greinke, and Josh Hamilton have not. I’m going to argue that this is a very good thing and indicative of some welcome sanity on the collective part of GMs. You see, Sanchez, Lohse, Greinke and Hamilton are considered the cream of the free agent...
