TORONTO Statistically speaking, Josh Hamilton is Matt Kemp.
Entering Monday, here were Hamilton's Triple Crown numbers and rank in the American League: .395 average (second), nine home runs (first) and 25 RBI (first).
And Kemp in the National League: .425 (first), 11 home runs (first) and 24 RBI (tied for first).
Hamilton's Rangers were 16-6, best record in the league. Kemp's Dodgers were 16-6, best record in the league. I could go on, but you get the idea: They are the elite players on thetop clubs in Major League Baseball.
Well, Hamilton didn't play Monday. It was his first absence of the season. He has an injured back muscle, and the Rangers don't know when he will return.
A similar absence for Kemp would debilitate the Dodgers. As great as Clayton Kershaw is, as impressive as Andre Ethier has been this year, the Dodgers would be mediocre without their superstar center fielder.

BEST OF MAXIM
Texas Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton left Sunday night's game against Tampa Bay with stiffness in his back.
Hamilton, the American League's home run leader with nine, is day-to-day. He got his AL-leading 25th RBI on a single to center field in the first inning, scoring Elvis Andrus.
In the same inning, Hamilton, who also leads the league in total bases and slugging percentage...

Ah, Opening Day, that most glorious of baseball days and most inconsequential of baseball sets. I'm not a big set collector, and I enjoy pulling hits of all kinds, so I have less than zero interest in ever buying the product for myself. However, for less than the price of a blaster (and purchased with Card Draft funds, no less), I couldn't possibly let the below beauty go...
While Matt Kemp's April explosion sparked Triple Crown conversations, he and the rest of the Los Angeles Dodgers are dealing more in reality than dreams. They have enjoyed a best-in-the-National League beginning to 2012, but have not lost sight of the six-month challenge of a baseball season.
Reality check: With a 17-7 start, the Dodgers' magic number to clinch the NL West...
Hot News for OF Matt Kemp
Coming into last night’s game at Dodger Stadium much of the attention was on 19 year-old phenom Bryce Harper, who was making his debut for the Washington Nationals in MLB’s most hyped entrance since Stephen Strasburg came onto the scene June 8, 2010. Harper’s first major league hit came on a double to [...]
AshleyMadison.com, a site that is basically a headhunter for people that want to cheat on their significant others, is going to end up being a real pain in Tim Tebow’s ass. The site has offered any girl that can prove that she had sex with him 1 Million dollars. This is half funny, and half completely insane. This would be like if Budweiser offered a million dollars to anyone...
