Josh Hamilton..

Has he learned to hit lefties or something? I notice he is hitting them well. Small sample size, but it was also a small sample size last season.

Josh Hamilton hits everything and anything thrown at him. I dont think hitting lefties will be a problem for a player with his kind of talent.

Josh Hamilton is so strong that he can't play guitar hero because each button press crushes the neck of the guitar into dust
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

Well most lefties even great ones have trouble hitting against lefties. He was a rookie last year coming off a 4 year hiatus, never playing above AA in his life. Someone with that kind of talent will eventually adjust and learn.

Josh Hamilton perceives the ball right-handedly when going against a lefthander, and left-handedly while hitting against a rightie. It is known.

Seriously, though, he did suck pretty hard against lefties last year and I wouldn't expect him to suddenly become a leftie-killer. That being said, if he can drag up his average vs. lefties into the .260-.270 range, then I could see him getting up to .300 AVG/30 HR/100 RBI pretty easily.

I thought only McLouth had that problem..... ;-7


Anyways, the guy is a stud, I was really impressed with what I saw out of him this weekend. Good plate coverage and discipline. Hitting in the middle of that lineup, he's pretty much a lock to be a top 50 fantasy player if not top 30.

What would happen if Hamilton faced Hamels? It might be the end of civilization as we know it. :-o
