Age and injury history. Position players typically tend to start declining once they hit age 30-31. Hamilton will be 32 at the start of next year. The one thing he might have going for him to buck the trend is that he doesn't have as much mileage since he started later due to the drug issues. But then you factor in that he gets injured every single year. Great player but I definitely would not want the Jays to go after him.

His previous "character" issues probably don't help either no matter how much that may be in check now.

Pretty sad how bad the Nat's bats have been this season, especially the past month.

Gotta be batting a collective .220.

Sad that we were the front runners for Prince Fielder and didn't manage to nab him. Probably would be up a good 8-9 games over the NL East with his bat.

Alex Cobb pitches a CG for the Rays tonight, he gave up 13 hits and 8 ER's and the Rays lost 8-0. Guess Maddon really didn't wanna use the bullpen tonight, still very weird.

Just as we thought Heath Bell has moved into respectability, he makes my head explode again.

Jose Bautista kindly decided to give others the spotlight for a couple months before taking the world by the scrotum again.

Apparently the Blue Jays are going to sign Jamie Moyer to a minor league contract.

He'll retire before reaching the Majors. Las Vegas and the PCL in general will crush his soul.

Injuries, lack of plate discipline, other concerns

Pittsburgh only 2 games out of 1st. Last year, they were in first as late as mid-July. Would be nice to see them win. I was 14 years old last time they had a winning season or made the playoffs.
