Right now a baseball must look like a beach ball for Josh Hamilton, who absolutely owned this past week of MLB action; the Rangers’ slugger hit nine home runs in his past six games, including a four home run night against the Orioles on May 8th, becoming just the 16th player to achieve such a feat. He leads the league in all three Triple Crown stats with 18 Home Runs, 41 RBIs, and a .402 Batting Average, and though it is still early, the 2010 MVP is on pace for a historical season with a .402 average along with 86 home runs and 195 RBIs. Now, the chances of him keeping up this record-shattering pace are slim to none but if Josh Hamilton can at least stay healthy (he’s only played more than 150 games just once in his career, in 2008) he could have a shot at a Triple Crown. The last Triple Crown winner was Boston’s Carl Yastrzemski in 1967…45 year ago. Hamilton is also in the middle of contract talks with the Rangers, and although he has a history of drug addiction and injuries, he is making a strong case to become one of the league’s highest paid players, joining the likes of Albert Pujols and Prince Fielder. Here’s to Hamilton continuing his success because he is a true Bleeping Champ.
