LAS VEGAS (CBS Sports) — 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.

Indeed, the Giants (at 3-1 odds) 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.
