After yesterday's outburst, it would probably be a good idea for the Rangers to give Hamilton some rest.

And yes, I'm in a head-to-head fantasy league and facing the team with Hamilton this week. :lol:

Until about two weeks ago I was all but resigned to the fact that Hamilton was going to walk from the Rangers after this season because his asking price was going to be too high. It would suck for a year or two, but shelling out 25+ a season for a high injury/relapse risk wasn't worth crippling the team going forward. I started to waver though when his hot start didn't cool off. After last night, I'm in back-the-truck-up mode. I don't want to see this guy in LA or anywhere else.

He just had the greatest single game offensive performance in AL history. He came about 10 feet shy of the first five HR game. He has 5 HRs in his last 6 ABs. He's batting .406/.458/.840 for the season with 14 HRs in 133 ABs.

There's also this:
@JeffPassan
Josh Hamilton could go 0 for his next 210 and still have a higher slugging percentage than Albert Pujols.

:lol:

It's hard not to get some satisfaction out of all the heat Pujols is getting. Even when the story isn't about him, the media pulls his struggles into it. Kurkjian pointed out Hamilton's 18 total bases last night and compared it to Albert's recent slide. Pujols has 11 total bases in his last 17 games.

I laughed my ass off at the Passan tweet when I read it on another forum earlier this morning.

Then I read this:

There are 7 other players w/ a lower OPS then AP right now in the majors that qualify. That's 179th out of 186th.

Apparently Beckett has moved on from beer and chicken.

http://espn.go.com/boston/mlb/story/_/id/7911759/report-josh-beckett-boston-red-sox-played-golf-2-days-missed-start

He said he was sore after his last start... why not play a little golf to loosen things up? (He was scratched from his next start 2 days after that)

Probably not all that big a deal, but Boston + losing record + media looking for blood = story

Postponed tonight. :DAnd I was super excited too. Saw this on a Rangers forum and thought it was interesting:

Some rough mathing here...

Hamilton's 18-base game last night jumped him from +1.9 to +2.7 fWAR on the year. A +0.8 fWAR game.

Teams currently pay around $5 million per +1 WAR on the free market.

A $4 million performance last night.

Notables:

April 12-April 18: six game HR streak, 11 RBIs

May 17-May 22: six game HR streak, 9 HRs total, 11 RBIs

I was shocked at the varsity line-up Matheny played after winning the first two games.

I was slightly surprised as well, but then remembered there being an off day today. Heard Berkman is coming off the DL tomorrow. If that's the case, Matheny will have plenty of opportunities to rotate guys in/out of the lineup. With Holliday starting to swing the bat, the offense is really clicking at the moment.

There's some first month of the season stat for you :lol:Not that it matters, but since WAR is calculated using Runs Added above Replacement, it is essentially a counting stat. It doesn't really matter when in the year those runs are added (or even if they're added all in one game).

MLB may make trick pickoff move a balk

NEW YORK (AP) -- A pickoff move that's been part of baseball strategy for years might get picked off next season. Major League Baseball is poised to eliminate the fake-to-third, throw-to-first trick that teams routinely use. The Playing Rules Committee has approved a proposal to make the move a balk, and MLB executives and umpires are in agreement. The players' union vetoed the plan for this season to discuss it further. MLB is allowed to implement the change after a one-year wait. There's no telling yet whether that would happen if players strongly object. Under the new wording, a pitcher could not fake to third unless he first stepped off the rubber. If he stayed on the rubber, as most all pitchers do now, it would be a balk.

==================================================================================================== ============
Thank God, I have always thought this was one of the dumbest things in baseball and should have been a balk since the inception of the sport!

I was shocked at the varsity line-up Matheny played after winning the first two games.

He needs to play the best lineup to give us a chance to win as many games as possible right now. It sucked watching the team win the first two games of a series to just piss away the third game and be content about it. Every win now is one less sleepless night in September.

Apparently Beckett has moved on from beer and chicken.

He said he was sore after his last start... why not play a little golf to loosen things up? (He was scratched from his next start 2 days after that)

Probably not all that big a deal, but Boston + losing record + media looking for blood = story


And then he comes out and gets shelled. Lots of boos.
