If you have been idly wasting your time and preparing for the end of the world correlating with the Mayan calendar dated December 21, 2012, perhaps, you've missed the sizzling play of the Texas Rangers Josh Hamilton.

Hamilton hit four home runs on May 8, 2012 against the Baltimore Orioles in an obvious sign of solidarity supporting the hypothesis the end is near based on the aforementioned Mayan calendar.  According to the Elias Sports Bureau, there have been 16 games in major-league history in which a single player hit four home runs.  The chance of seeing this based on the 200,519 regular-season games all ready played in MLB history?  One in 12,532.

Josh Hamilton has now hit more home runs this season than the San Diego Padres as a team.  Hamilton has 14 and the Padres have 12 team home runs.

Good:  Josh Hamilton, the Texas Rangers and the St. Louis Cardinals.

Not Good:  San Diego hitting, Baltimore pitching, and Arizona pitching.

Until Next Time,

Craig Turley
