Josh Hamilton is in the top five when speaking of best players in the game.
I am proclaiming that he has the best tools of ANYONE today.
The sky is the limit for our young Hammer (Hank Blalock officially lost this nomenclature the minute Hamilton started taking BP during Spring Training.)
Click here to see his monster night.
It doesn’t show his first at bat which is the one I was most impressed with. He lined a ball the opposite way for a single. Nothing real impressive, but for someone with his power and size, to be able to stay on the ball serving them into left field, is something else.
Then watch his at bat when he beats out a close-to-routine grounder.
Oh, and check out around 55 seconds, right when the ball leaves the bat, the sound the crowd makes, this is what it’s all about, the “Buzz” he creates.
His natural, God-given talents are beyond ridiculous. Don’t forget he’s 6’4″ hovering around 240.
For the record, and I”ve said this a million times, I don’t care if Volquez wins 15-18 games, I make that trade 10 times out of 10…..just to emphasize it a little more, I make it 10,000,000 times out of 10,000,000.
Hamilton will win more games by being out there everyday. Hamilton is a special player, one that doesn’t come around all too often.
I’m going to the game tonight and I am actually beyond excited, this is the first time I”ve felt this way in a looooong time folks.
I haven’t even talked about his defense yet. I’ll save that for another time, I don’t want people thinking I have some sort of mancrush on the Hammer or anything……….
