Josh Hamilton was the hottest hitter in baseball the first two months of the season. The former AL MVP clubbed 21 home runs in April and May, posting a 1.182 and 1.187 OPS in both months, respectively. The highlight of his hot streak was an incredible four home run game in Baltimore. But then Hamilton hit .222 in June with four home runs and is only batting .172 with three home runs...
Everybody can agree that Josh Hamilton is mind-bogglingly talented -- even for a five-time All-Star and former MVP, and especially for somebody who was completely out of baseball for three years as he grappled with recovering from debilitating addictions. Even baseball's Superman, however, has his kryptonite. For Hamilton, that kryptonite is pitches out of the strike zone. It...
