Could Angel outfielder Peter Bourjos be available with the Hamilton signing?

Great defender, no bat. Who do we have that they would want for him?

Nothin, if you can't sign good FA you have nothing to trade either.

If you figure major league teams want to make sure they have a backup at every position in case of emergencies, and that Mastrionni is the only guy we currently have to play CF, then IMO, it means Benson or Hicks will have to break with the team...and whichever one does, probably is the starter with Mastrionni being the 4th OF.

Would you concur? Or am I missing something?

Wasn't there someone on this site who said we should trade the entire farm for this guy?

I dig Bourjos a lot. Try Duensing.....(that is both tongue in cheek and half-serious, I think veteran bullpen is what they want)

Im sure the Angels would prefer to keep Bourjos as a 4th OF, especially with Hamilton prone to injury.

They have Vernon Wells which would be a tough contract to remove. Bourjos is worth a phone call for his defense and speed alone. You just don't want of overpay for him with Hicks and Arcia knocking at the door.
