Josh Hamilton has been a huge topic of conversation so far this season due to his hot start & historical 4 HR night last week. He and Matt Kemp are absolutely destroying opposing pitchers. So much so, that Oakland Pitcher, Brandon McCarthy has enlisted an interesting method in his attempt to get Hamilton out: Funny. [...]

If you think outfielder Josh Hamilton will sign a contract that sufficiently protects the Texas Rangers from any injuries and relapses that he might suffer, think again.
Hamilton need not make concessions when he likely would receive a massive, fully guaranteed free-agent contract if he stays reasonably healthy and productive.
Besides, the collective bargaining agreement addresses...
Texas Rangers OF Josh Hamilton put the finishing touches on one of the greatest offensive
weeks in baseball history Sunday with a pair of hits and three more RBIs. Hamilton did not homer in Sunday's 13-6 throttling of Los Angeles, leaving him with
nine homers for the week. Hamilton tied the major league record for homers in a single
game with four on Tuesday. He set the...

Only incessant rain in Baltimore halted Josh Hamilton’s attack on Orioles pitching. But Hamilton still managed to make the most of a rainy night in Charm City. One night after tying a major league record by hitting four home runs, the oft-injured outfielder led a group of teammates into an all-out sprint and slide onto the Camden Yards tarp – barefoot no less.
If I’m the Texas...
Reportedly, the Rangers declare great interest in signing Josh Hamilton to a contract extension. Naturally, expressing such interest comes straight from the “GM for Dummies” handbook. If the club fails to appear genuine with this interest, then Team Hamilton (represented by agent Michael Moye) has every reason to use the “disrespected and unloved” approach...
Josh Hamilton is playing out of his mind. The crazy thing is, what he's doing has nothing to do with luck; he's just that good. His talent level is so far above most major leaguers that it's borderline absurd. This is what I imagine the game of baseball looks like through Josh Hamilton's eyes right about now...
Joe touched on it this morning, but Hamilton has more...
For all the fretting about the Texas Rangers re-opening contract discussions with Josh Hamilton, his extraordinary and power-hitting performances, the 16th major leaguer to drill four home runs in one game against the Orioles the other night, should earn him a raise in his salary. Rest assured, he’s the No. 1 Power Ranger, like Tommy, the Red Ranger.
If Hamilton is your American...
Josh Hamilton hit two more home runs, Yu Darvish struck out
seven and the Texas Rangers beat the Los Angeles Angels 10-3 in a
rain-interrupted game Friday night when C.J. Wilson faced only five
batters against his old team.
ARLINGTON, Texas The Los Angeles Angels decided to challenge the best hitter in baseball when they didn't have to. Already trailing by four runs in the fourth inning, Angels manager Mike Scioscia allowed his ace, Jered Weaver, to pitch to Josh Hamilton with one out and runners on second and third.
Weaver may have thrown a no-hitter earlier this month, but he had just given...
Josh Hamilton hit two more home runs, Yu Darvish struck out seven and the Texas Rangers beat the Los Angeles Angels 10-3 in a rain-interrupted game Friday night when C.J. Wilson faced only five batters against his old team.
Both of Hamilton's solo homers came after a one-hour, 56-minute rain delay in the first inning when the Rangers went ahead to stay against Wilson (4-3),...
Baseball is amazing isn't it? Watch it long enough and you're bound to see things rarely accomplished or even things that have never been done before. This past week at Camden Yards in Baltimore, the Texas Rangers and Baltimore Orioles provided some additions to baseball's record books with feats that have only happened a handful of times in the game's history.Power...
Major league teams’ insurance claims on pitchers have skyrocketed in recent days, as baseball perhaps shifts back to being hitter-friendly. Yes, I know there have been two no-hitters this season, but there also have been a lot of 10-run games. Josh Hamilton’s 4 home runs on Tuesday add to a trend: the “years of the [...]
What he did: Every so often, baseball gets a great hitter who debuts late. The 1920s had Lefty O'Doul failing as a pitcher with the Yankees, reinventing himself in the Pacific Coast League as a batter, and hitting .398 with the Phillies in 1929. Josh Hamilton might be O'Doul's modern equivalent, following his selection as the first pick in 1999 draft with a descent into...
Well another week in the 2012 MLB Season is in the books, and so far each one brings more excitement and drama than the last.
And this week history was made both good and bad.
First, the Yankees are learning what life is like without the greatest closer in the history of baseball. Losing Mariano Rivera to a torn ACL and a newly discovered blood clot did not just take a toll on Yankees...
Things are going pretty well for the Texas Rangers right now. They're the owners of the best record in Major League Baseball (21-11) and perhaps the best player in the game as well in Josh Hamilton.However, even the best of us trip up every now and then. And that's quite literally what they did in Baltimore on Thursday.Trailing 6-1 with two outs in the bottom of the seventh...
