I think I'd take him on this. Sox first base is a black hole with no internal options in sight. Also, with so much financial room, they can afford to over play a handful of players.

My gut tells me Swish ages fairly well.
I would take him for $60MM, too. That's why anything over that is too much. He'll get closer to $80MM.

I like Swisher a lot, but no way does he get an $80M contract.

I agree. 60 to 80 is the range.

I'll say 5 years, $23MM per. High annual value in exchange for less length.

Bigger question for me, who's going to pay Hamilton?

Red Sox? Phillies (do they have any money left)? I'd say Dodgers but they definitely don't need outfielders. Nationals will probably snag Bourn or Upton for CF... Marlins?

I've seen people mention Detroit. Though it seems insane to me, before it happened I would never have thought they'd really sign Prince.

But if I had to bet on it I'd lean hesitantly towards Washington.

Detroit has an owner with more money than God who likes to spend it and is 85 years old. They shouldn't be counted out for anybody.

It appears that the Rangers aren't going to make Hamilton an offer until he's shopped around. Might get him back for cheap, that'll go down well after his final few weeks here.

I'd be shocked if he goes back to Texas.

They don't lose a lot without him. Martin is ready, and offense isn't their problem.
