Will The Rangers Go Ham?

  Going HAM 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...

Joe touched on it this morning, but Hamilton has more...

Josh Hamilton Has Powered Rangers, So Pay Him, Please

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.
