Josh Hamilton: Rangers Would Probably Save Money By Signing Me Now

"Josh Hamilton made it clear at the start of spring training that he's not especially interested in taking a hometown discount to stay in Texas when he hits free agency this off-season. But the Rangers slugger could be softening his stance... at least a bit.

According to a tweet by ESPN analyst Jim Bowden, Hamilton said the Rangers could "sign him for a lot less money now than they'll be able to when he's a free agent." Bowden later tweeted that Hamilton's loyalty lies "first and foremost" with the Rangers, and that he'll give Texas the first shot to sign him as a free agent.

"Free agency is free agency," Hamilton said on Bowen's Sirius XM radio show. "If they were to sign me now, it would probably cost less. If they sign me then, then it's going to cost more.""
