Who thinks he will resign?

I'm personally still torn about the Orioles going after Hamilton.

Don't be. They aren't unless its at a reasonable price and length. Otherwise like most teams they know he's peaked, overpriced and not a real need.

If it's more than 4 years I see no fit. Otherwise I am interested. But it is unlikely to happen.

Read on OH today that we're about to make a "huge offer" for Hamilton. Don't know how much of that is fact or fiction 8-)

Please provide links to this kind of stuff. It's not fair to simply post this without a link. It's not clear whether this is simply speculation or if someone has heard this from a source.

Please post a link.

**UPDATED MLB NEWS**Source: Baltimore Orioles / Mariners are ready to jump in Josh Hamilton bidding (O's prepared to make HUGE offer) #IBN


I personally believe he just throws stuff at the wall and takes credibility for what sticks.

Josh Hamilton is not like that Mark Texiera. O's offered Mark Texiera a lot of dough back in 2010. But Texiera said I loved wearing pinstripes.

Is that the same kind of "HUGE" that Donald Trump over hypes? At this point if OH said that water was wet I'd get a second opinion.

At this point the Rangers know him better than any other team. If they feel that anything longer than three years is an unacceptable risk then SMART teams SHOULD pay attention to that.

FWIW, I suggested about a week ago that a reasonable contract would be three years and a vested option.
