07:36 AM ET 07.15 | Josh Hamilton continues to talk like a guy who will test the free-agent market in the fall. He easily could hit the market and then wind up back with the Rangers, but keep an eye on the Brewers and Blue Jays as possible bidders. Imagine how he would look sandwiched between Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion or hitting next to Ryan Braun.

With the problems he has had in the past he may want to consider just staying with a group he knows well. Sometimes change can be tuff for an addict. Hopefully he will pray over the choice and not just go with the most money.

Good Morning Mick, he's an outstanding player, and you might be right, this is a tough town to play in, The Fans would eat him up!

Don't rule out the Yankees, once they get rid of Swisher and his 10 million after this season. Hamilton could hit 50 HRs at Yankee Stadium, the endorsements...etc..

Pretty sure the Yankees will need pitching more than offense....

I wouldn't worry about the outside pressures. They can happen regardless of location. I'd be more concerned about whether he can stay healthy.

Agents benefit from getting players to take the biggest dollar deal; players benefit from staying where they are successful. Trying out FA may be a way to maximize the offer from Texas--hope h sticks to that, and stays put.

Why would the Brewers bid on Hamilton after letting Prince walk?

This will be the most intriguing story of the offseason. What a talent, but what a gamble given his health.

Hamilton will not be sandwich in Milwaukee or Toronto because of one thing MONEY. Neither team in their history has shown they will empty the bank for one of these high price free agents.

Too bad Dan Gilbert won't buy the Indians and then they might have had a shot.

I have a couple of those too--they are more entertainment than FN even. Besides, if he sees you are distracted by posting, think of all the trouble he could get into!
