I could be wrong in what I'm saying but I'll be dead before I realize it.

Man, is this guy loving that Rangers homerun launch pad or what? Great American Ball Park was great for him as well btw. He is just pure natural.

Prompted me to look at his splits. Larger than i expected, he has indeed mashed in arlington and just been ok on the road(still getting the rbis on the road though). Of course, his 3 or 4 homeruns over 440 feet in ameriquest are gone anywhere.

The Park Factor for Arlington jumped after last night's slugfest. Two or three days ago it was perfectly league-average. It really becomes a hitter's park starting in June or so once the weather starts getting hotter. So I wouldn't attribute Hamilton's start to his ballpark... he's just really good.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

I really don't think that shot was "that" amazing. There have defintley been some enormous monsters even compared to Hamilton's HR in recent memory.
