The game of baseball is full of statistical oddities. In Thursday’s start against the Baltimore Orioles, Colby Lewis added to that list, allowing six runs despite striking out 12 batters and allowing five hits thanks to all five flying over the Camden Yards fences for home runs. Only two other ti...

Hamilton's deal possibly short, sweet

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...

A's pitcher jokes about hot Hamilton

Josh Hamilton has been absurdly hot for the Rangers, so one of Oakland's pitchers cracked a joke about facing the slugger.

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...

Dugout Digest - Colby Lewis, and infamy

Colby Lewis of the Texas Rangers had a very strange game yesterday, in the first game of a doubleheader between the Rangers and Orioles. Rangers starter Colby Lewis allowed five hits, six runs, one walk, and struck out a career-high 12. Of course, each of those five hits was a homer. Lewis was the first player in nearly 100 years to allow five homers along with ten strikeouts in...

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. Rest assured, he’s the No. 1 Power Ranger, like Tommy, the Red Ranger. If Hamilton is your American...

Wilson gets another shot at Texas right away

ARLINGTON, Texas C.J. Wilson threw 22 pitches Friday night before a Texas-sized downpour interrupted his start at Rangers Ballpark. The delay lasted almost two hours. By the time the night was over, Wilson was back at the team hotel, presumably tucked in bed. Wilson will give it another try Saturday. After the Angels lost the opener of a three-game series to the Texas Rangers...

Baseball according to Josh Hamilton

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...

Rangers 10, Angels 3

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),...

Every infielder's worst nightmare

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...
