Hamilton gets special message before HR

There is no happier harbinger in baseball than translucent tarpaulin. It's unfurled in the late innings when a series clincher is near, to protect the carpets and cables and televisions where a celebration is about to erupt. Once the clubhouse kids do that, you have clipped the tip of your victory cigar. Thursday was the perfect occasion for the Texas Rangers to win their first...

Hamilton Talks To God

Josh Hamilton has done it all. Smoked meth. Got ****** tattoos. Woke up in a ditch. Won an MVP award, and last night he talked to God, who took time out of his busy schedule to tell Hamilton that he’d hit a homerun in the 10th inning. Pretty cool of God, but not cool enough to use his powers to keep David Freese’s hit inside the park the next inning. But at least it made for...

God Told Josh Hamilton He Would Hit a Home Run, but Not that Texas Would Win

For a few minutes during Game 6, Josh Hamilton looked like he was going to be the hero. Hamilton, who is playing through a groin injury that would have him on the disabled list if it were the regular season, homered for the first time the entire series. His two-run blast in the 10th inning [...]

Josh Hamilton says God told him he was going to hit a homer

ST. LOUIS — Josh Hamilton claims he knew how his at-bat against Jason Motte was going to end, even before he strode to the plate in the 10th inning. How so? Well, the born-again Texas Rangers slugger said that he had a conversation with God and was told he'd hit a two-run homer to give the Rangers their last lead of the night. That's exactly what happened as Hamilton hit...

The Texas Rangers Are Not World Champions, Possibly Thanks To FOX Dallas's Jinx

KDFW, the FOX affiliate in Dallas, sent out this text alert sometime after Josh Hamilton's 10th inning home run in the middle of the 9th—one of the multiple stretches it seemed like the Rangers had the game in hand. But there are no such things as jinxes; only depleted bullpens, questionable intentional walks, and unlikely clutch hitter. [Twitter...

What Happened?

Josh Hamilton‘s fairy tale ending was ruined. His well-documented life story goes from phenom, to drug addict, to comeback player, to killing a fan with a souvenir baseball, to World Series winning homer….er…. I mean to Darren Oliver? “Darren Oliver?” That’s all my Dad wrote in a text to me last night when he saw the 73 year-old left-hander enter the game. For some reason...

With Texas on verge of title, Game 6 tied 2-2

Run-scoring hits by Josh Hamilton and Ian Kinsler offset Lance Berkman's two-run homer, leaving the Rangers and St. Louis Cardinals tied 2-2 after three innings Thursday night as Texas tried to win its first World Series title.

There's Always Next Year, Rangers Fans

After the most ridiculous Game 6 in the history of baseball forced the decisive Game 7 Friday night at Busch Stadium, the Texas Rangers were confident that they'd bring their first ever World Series Championship back home to Arlington. However, it looks like they're going to have to wait until next October... kinda like last season. Leading the game for a whole half...
