Make some room, Boomstick, Rangers Ballpark at Arlington has added another ginormous wiener to its arsenal of delectable, over-sized foodstuffs. Because as far as ballpark fare is concerned, bigger is always better and there’s always space for more artery-clogging items. Behold, the Great Bratbino.

Josh Hamilton Showing That I'll Have Another Not Only Triple Crown Threat This Year

Take your pick. While I'll Have Another will now have a shot to win horse racing's first Triple Crown since 1978 after taking home the Preakness on Saturday, Josh Hamilton has a Triple Crown on his mind as well. The Rangers outfielder enters Sunday leading the American League in home runs (18), RBIs (46) and batting average (.384) -- all by a fairly wide margin. It's...

Rangers' Hamilton sits for 1st time since HR tear

Texas Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton is out of the lineup for the first time since a hot streak that vaulted him to the American League lead in all three Triple Crown categories. Hamilton was the last of five key starters to get a rest in a four-game stretch that ended Thursday against Oakland. The former AL MVP has cooled off some since hitting .467 (14 of 30) with two doubles...

Ryan discusses Hamilton's future

Texas Rangers star slugger Josh Hamilton insists he isn't worried about his impending free agency. Team president Nolan Ryan certainly is. Hamilton, who is eligible for free agency after this season, said before the start of Friday's series with the Houston Astros that he's not worrying about it ''at all.'' ''I'm praying a lot about it,...

Rangers-Astros Preview

While Josh Hamilton was given most of Thursday off, the Houston Astros surely would not object if Ron Washington rested his slugger for the whole weekend. Hamilton and the Rangers begin their bid to retain the Silver Boot for the sixth straight year Friday night when they open their three-game interleague series versus the Houston Astros. With Texas (24-15) in the midst of a 20...

Nolan Ryan discusses Hamilton's future

HOUSTON (AP) -- Texas Rangers star slugger Josh Hamilton insists he isn't worried about his impending free agency. Team president Nolan Ryan certainly is. Hamilton, who is eligible for free agency after this season, says he's not worrying about it "at all." The deeply religious player says he is praying about it though, and that he'll end up where God wants...

Is Horse Racing's or Baseball's Triple Crown Harder to Win?

On the track, I'll Have Another moved within one race win of earning the Triple Crown by winning Saturday's Preakness. Meanwhile, on the diamond, Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton continues to lead the American League in home runs, RBIs and batting average. Could it be possible that we see two Triple Crowns in the same year? I'll Have Another would become the first horse...

AL move will heat up Astros, Rangers rivalry

One of the few benefits of the Astros' pending move to the American League is that games against the Rangers may actually mean something. Because, with all due respect to the much-revered Silver Boot, in recent years this interleague match-up has meant little more than an opportunity to see Josh Hamilton up close and personal. To say that the Astros and Rangers are now a rivalry...

BP Podcast: Episode 93: Miniature Donkeys Are Great by Kevin Goldstein

After a brief hiatus, we return with an action-packed show (ok, we just talk a lot). After going on an email-inspired rant about the current state of baseball content on the internet, we delve into the game itself and discuss everything from Josh Hamilton's crazy run to Stanford righty Mark Appel to the lack of power prospects to the current state of the Arizona and Colorado...

Latest from the Tank...

Let's look at baseball in the last week. Josh Hamilton (who is on my fantasy baseball team) had nine homeruns, and 14 RBI's in one week.  He now sits at 18 HR's and 44 RBI's in this early season.  That's 17 more home runs than Albert Pujols, who makes more money than I will dream about.  Speaking of which the the Angels are now 8 games back in the American...

The Flushing Five Spot

1. Jordanny Valdespin’s time up was short-lived. He showed some flashes but for the was a bit shaky. He did not give Terry Collins confidence to that he could to the job at short and therefore did not see many starts or much playing time.  He’s back in Triple-A where needs to be so he can have getting regular playing time. 2. David Wright is playing out of his mind. He is...

Lying, Whoring Numbers: 5/16/12

Photo Credit: Keith Allison It’s getting to the point of the fantasy baseball season where your boy Daddy Starbucks starts to grow listless with writing about the sport. Don’t get it twisted, I still plan on winning all my leagues and will follow the game closely, but posts from me on fantasy baseball will begin to become more infrequent. The reason? There’s just not that...
