Well what do you think Hampton on the southside?? I know keep dreaming....

According to the report, the Rockies have been trying to trade Hampton for over a year, but haven't come close since Colorado will need to pay a big part of the remaining $103.5 million of the pitcher's contract.

that's who I would go after, considering how good he was before colorado - and I'll bet he'll bounce back, like Darryl Kile. but I know he wants to back, so AL might be a stretch. who knows?

I agree with you. I feel like he would bounce back from "Coors Lite" field. I don't know if the Sox would cough up the money for him over the remaider of his contract. Daver give us his money stats if you would please!!!

I think he hit something like 20 over the last three years. I'll check.

Well, I messed that one up! He has 10 career homers, 7 in 2001, and 3 this year.
