He would give the Sox more athleticism at the plate and in the field. And he is a local kid, to boot.
The Sox should explore this.
My concern about Hamilton is this: he has thrived playing in Arlington, Texas. Los Angeles is a much bigger stage and the contract is enormous. It is difficult to predict how he responds to this new situation.
We'll see. The L.A. Angels were supposed to run away and hide last year, too. They finished 3rd.
Yeah alot of times these big buyers never really pan out. Although it does seem hard to believe that they wont run away with AL West.
