PLAYERS: Josh Hamilton
TEAMS: Texas Rangers
What can you say about the way that Josh Hamilton is hitting right now that hasn't already been said? The Texas Rangers outfielder is playing in his own world right now, hitting everything he sees, as he continues his assault on major league pitching. Hamilton singled Tuesday night to extend his hitting streak to 15 games, the best in the majors. During that streak, he's posted Ruthean -- nay, Hamiltonian -- numbers. In those 15 games, Hamilton is hitting .418. He has 10 home runs and 26 RBIs, despite being walked 12 times, three of those intentionally. Add it all...

Hamilton latest Rangers player to get on Twitter

ARLINGTON, Texas With a bit of reluctance Texas superstar Josh Hamilton is the latest member of the Rangers to set up a Twitter account. The @therealjoshhamilton launched not because Hamilton has embraced social media, but because he got fed up with fake accounts.

With Texas (24-15) in the midst of a 20...

Historic Baseball Feats – By The Numbers

Last week, Josh Hamilton became the 16th player in Major League Baseball History to hit four home runs in a game.  Since the beginning of Major League Baseball there have been over 200,000 games played and over 13 million at-bats.  Hamilton did something that happened over 15 times before him.  That made me wonder, what is more rare than a four home run game. There are many special...

Why Hamilton doesn't get Becket treatment

For all the uproar over Josh Beckett's ill-timed golf outing, Josh Hamilton's headfirst slide on a wet tarp in Baltimore last week was probably the more reckless act. Hamilton missed a series in Toronto from April 30 to May 2 with a sore back, yet received virtually no criticism for frolicking with his teammates in the rain just one week later. The difference? Hamilton...
