|What does the future hold for Josh Hamilton? (Getty Images)|
Josh Hamilton, who for much of the season looked like the runaway AL MVP, is easily the most alluring talent in what's a fairly "meh" 2012-13 free-agent class. As such, Hamilton's future has drawn the odds-making eye of Vegas. Courtesy of Bovada.lv, here are the odds on where Hamilton will sign this offseason ...
Who will sign Josh Hamilton next?
San Francisco Giants 3-1
Atlanta Braves 5-1
Texas Rangers 5-1
Philadelphia Phillies 7-1
New York Yankees 9-1
Chicago Cubs 9-1
Boston Red Sox 9-1
Pittsburgh Pirates 10-1
Toronto Blue Jays 10-1
Los Angeles Dodgers 15-1
Indeed, the Giants would seem to be a fit. They'll have the need, they'll have the money and GM Brian Sabean loves his veterans.
On another level, it'll be interesting to see how the market treats Hamilton. We know what he can do when he's at his best, but his history of injuries and his off-the-field concerns figure to tamp down what would otherwise be a deal comfortably in the nine-figure range.
