Money will be an issue for the Milwaukee Brewers this offseason, making them a long shot to sign free agent outfielder Josh Hamilton, reports Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com. no surprise, $ an issue for milw. asked if they're a long shot for hamilton, melvin said "very." hope may be market, narron — Jon Heyman (@JonHeymanCBS) November 6, 2012 Two weeks ago it was reported that the Brewers were seriously considering pursuing Hamilton this winter. The reasoning behind their interest was that they felt Milwaukee was a good market for Hamilton and several of their coaches, including Johnny Narron, are extremely close to the outfielder. However, reports recently came out that Hamilton will be seeking a deal in the seven-year, $175 million range. This figures to be well out of the range of the Brewers and many other clubs. If Hamilton is able to fetch a deal of this caliber it would certainly narrow his list of potential suitors. But that is a big if considering the question marks surrounding the 2010 American League MVP. While he is extremely talented, teams are reportedly more interested in offering Hamilton a high annual salary over a much shorter term. Some analysts have said they wouldn’t be willing to go over three years. Follow @mlbinjurynews
