Josh Hamilton 

Post#1 » by treyZz » Sat Apr 14, 2007 6:05 am

How will his career turnout??

What a crazy life story.. From the #1 overall pick to smoking crack.. I'm definitely rooting for this guy.. He went almost 3 years without seeing live pitching and now is in the majors and actually hitting the ball well.. He had a clutch 2 run single against my Cubbies today..

His stats this year: Four for Thirteen / .308 / 2hr / 5rbi / 4walks / 4K's / .471obp

He just doesn't have anywhere in the lineup to get consistent at-bats unless someone gets injured.

Not only was he the top pick at one time but he was one of the best ever to go number 1, he was that good. I think they find a way to get him into the lineup because when he's in there they win. I would think he'll end up being the regular centerfielder. The Reds would be a perfect candidate for a DH.

Anybody else find the juxtaposition of these two statements hilarious?

Ryan Freel said hed give his starting CF spot up for Hamilton in a story yesterday. Freel would then move to the infield. He thinks Hamilton will help the team that much. Look for some big numbers from this guy if he gets to play every day . Im defintly rooting for him

I'm rooting for him to do well as well but I hope it comes in a non-rookie of the year way lol.

I have a buddy who is a rookie pitching for the Mets and I want him to win rookie of the year in the NL.

Check out his stats in my sig.
"I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed." - Michael Jordan

Hamilton Homered again tonight.

Definitely in the lead for NL ROY.
