IT IS HIGH, IT IS FAR, IT IS caught:
First thing I learned in news - (after kill all Republicans; Satan is your new master) - is that you don't write a story to say that somebody is considering a lawsuit. It's not news. Anybody can consider suing. It's news if somebody sues - (that is, if they sue a celebrity. If they just sue a corporation for polution or something, wait until the lawsuit is resolved.) As we speak, I am "considering" a class action lawsuit against the Strainedbrenners for hording all the loot that Yankee fans and taxpayers send them. Nevertheless, I accept why the Times isn't covering this important development. (I may have to "seriously consider" it and try again.)So why write that the Yankees are considering an offer to Josh Hamilton?That's sort of like announcing, 'NO NEWS TODAY.' Hell, I bet the Yankees consider many things. I bet they consider dressing like women. I bet the Yankees consider dropping everything, shaving their head and opening a sex p...

THE RIME OF THE NEW MARINER?
The Mariners reportedly have established themselves as a player in the Josh Hamilton Sweepstakes and are rumored to be offering him a three-year, big money deal.
At least financially? As just about every team but the Yomiuri Giants has been associated with signing Josh Hamilton, the Yankees name finally surfaced. USA Today’s Bob Nightengale tweeted:
@BNightengale The #Yankees, but not GM Brian Cashman, quietly running background check on Josh Hamilton, rival GM says.
The background check might turn up some issues with substance...
The latest hot stove rumor circulating is that the New York Yankees have inquired about slugging outfielder Josh Hamilton.
USA Today Bob Nightengale reported the news via twitter but who knows if this was purely to generate attention as the source, an American League general manager, of course was anonymous.
The #Yankees, but not GM Brian Cashman, quietly running background check...
This offseason has been rather un-Yankee-like. That doesn’t mean the Bronx Bombers should be ruled out of anything, though
While the Yankees have been relatively quiet thus far, even losing out on guys like Jeff Keppinger, New York is apparently still doing its due diligence on perhaps the biggest fish in free agency. According to USA Today’s Bob Nightengale, the Yankees are...
Josh Hamilton would help the Seattle Mariners. That is obvious. They need his presence, his star power, his fluid left-handed swing. But if they think he alone is the answer to their offensive woes, they might be headed toward a costly calamity.
The Mariners remained firmly in the Hamilton sweepstakes as the baseball winter meetings adjourned Thursday, discussing three-year deals...
Not Cashman? Are the Yankees brass pulling another Rafael Soriano type move here?
There was also an article by Joel Sherman in today's New York Post where he says that George Steinbrenner and the old Yankees brass would never pass up on the chance of getting Josh Hamilton in Pinstripes, which is very true. It will be interesting to see how this whole thing plays out.
A lot of Phillies fans are unimpressed with the Phillies two latest additions – CF Ben Revere and 3B Michael Young. While both players fill huge holes for the Phillies, many don’t think they are the type of impact players that can help the Phillies climb back into the NL East race that they coughed up last year.
Ben Revere, whom the Phillies acquired in a trade that sent Vance...
Seattle Mariners president Chuck Armstrong keeps saying that the team hasn’t exchanged numbers with outfielder Josh Hamilton. Ken Rosenthal reports differently though, he tweeted today that the team has exchanged dollars and years with the Texas Rangers slugger.
The dollars should be enough to get a deal done but I highly...
How can it be reasonably reported that the Yankees are "quietly" checking in with Josh Hamilton?
Go to any web site selling Texas Rangers gear and there they are: T-shirts and jerseys with the names Napoli, Hamilton and Young on the back.
Soon, they could all be in the bargain bin.
The Rangers are undergoing much more than a wardrobe change this winter. General manager Jon Daniels and team president Nolan Ryan are in the midst of reshaping the team.
Mike Napoli is already...
A word of advice for certain baseball general managers: When dealing with Zack Greinke and Josh Hamilton: caveat emptor – let the buyer beware. I’m speaking to you, Ned Colletti, Jon Daniels, Jerry Dipoto, Jack Zduriencik. Daniels, the Rangers GM, knows of which I speak. Hamilton has been his headache for the [...]
Josh Hamilton, Zack Greinke, and Justin Upton are three pieces of three monster deals that could be on verge of either getting done at any moment, or fall apart at the last minute.
That’s all fine and dandy, but there are plenty of other players, serviceable players that are available that no one talks about.
Look at Randy Choate for example. According to Jon Morosi’s...
