Brewers serious about Hamilton

by Matthew on October 26, 2012

There is little doubt that Josh Hamilton’s impact on the success of the Texas Rangers has been unparalleled.

The lefty slugger has hit .305/.363/.549 with an average of 28 homers and 101 RBI over his five seasons in the lone star state, while being the most consistent force on a team that finished second in the AL West three times, first two times and made it the World Series twice.

However, for the Rangers to let the impending free agent sign with another team seems in the cards.

And the Milwaukee Brewers are one of the teams that may be in the running for the 32-year old, reports Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com.

Brewers’ owner Mark Attanasio has built solid club with a payroll expected to be over $100 million in 2013, and should have enough cash to negotiate a deal with Hamilton providing he doesn’t get too greedy.

The market for Hamilton is sure to be interesting, as he is a talented player with some palpable issues, which have at timed created lapses in performance.

Still, for the right price, Hamilton still has a lot left in the tank to help any team that is willing to make a small gamble, to a World Series title.

Spread the Rumor!
