Josh Hamilton – (32) LF/CF, 6’4”, 240 Lbs, L/L: You look at Josh Hamilton these days and the story isn’t so much about his one-time troubles with addiction. The biggest question that general managers and Sandy Alderson have for concern with Hamilton is his age and the size and length of his desired contract. Is Hamilton a $25 Mil a year player? I don’t know. From a Fantasy Baseball perspective you have to ask if you’d be taking him in the top 40 players and then the answer is yes. The problem with Fantasy Baseball vs. Real Life Baseball is that it doesn’t take into account things like handed-ness or a player’s emotional issues and the problems with that player going to a “Big Market” area like New York.
