So, let's get right down to it.
Will the Yankees attempt to pursue perhaps the biggest name in free agency when the 2012 season ends?
It makes sense in a lot of ways because adding Hamilton to a lineup with Alex Rodriguez, Mark Teixeira and Robinson Cano would be deadly.
Hamilton's swing is made for Yankee Stadium, just like any lefty power-hitter that has come and gone through the Bronx.
Plus, Hamilton is a star, maybe the biggest star in the sport now, and putting him in New York would almost be fitting.
But the Yankees signing Hamilton is no sure thing.
He's in his 30's, and he's also had some history with being injured as well in recent time.
Plus, with his past, if he ever had another slip with alcohol, and the New York media got a hold of it, that would be an utter media and public relations nightmare for the Yankees.
If you were to ask me right now, I'd say it's a 50-50 shot on the Yankees going for Hamilton.
Adding Hamilton's contract with Alex Rodriguez, Mark Teixeira and CC Sabathia is a lot of money to give out to four players, and players in their 30's, which is a major risk.
On the other side, how can the Yankees not be interested in the possibility of getting Hamilton?
We've got a lot of time between now and the end of the season to discuss and talk about whether the Yankees will pursue Hamilton.
So we'll begin the talk, and although this might die down as the summer goes on, you know when the winter comes, this will be a very hot topic.
Stay tuned, Yankees Universe.
