I'm looking for a decent buy low. The second to last place team wants to get rid of Josh Hamilton. Should I try to buy low or is he going to be a season long headache? Or would Jason Heyward be a better target?

I think I'd rather have Hamilton - he's hit poorly but Heyward's hit even worse. Hamilton is certainly worth buying low if you can offload the right package for him.

the ultra buy low window on hamilton was closed last night. i'm sure you can still get a good deal on him, just not as much as you could have. personally, i'd rather have heyward ROS.

I agree between the two I like Hamilton more.but now it depends how badly the other owner wants to get rid of him.in the end might be worth going for heyward(who I'm not a fan of) for cheaper than what Hamilton might cost.but throw out some feelers for Hamilton first.lowball him but make it pretty reasonable.hammer home to him that Hamilton looks terrible and your taking a huge risk w him.
