Free agency hasn’t even started yet and things have already been off to a wonderful start. (That’s a fake account, by the way.)
The Phillies are interested in Josh Hamilton, but are turned off by the years. Buster Olney reported that the Phillies are “OK” with Hamilton’s annual salary demands, but are concerned with how many years.
Hamilton is looking to get a contract of at least seven years, a little risky for a 31-year-old with past drug and alcohol problems.
Olney also tweeted the Phillies are talking to free agent Cody Ross, who in 2010 killed the Phillies in the NLCS.
