That's because that sort of thing is becoming unpopular.
If you are not religious that is like nails on a chalk board.


That's on those people, not hamilton. They can ignore those words if they want. Hamilton is speaking from his heart, and I admire and praise him for it. More people should try it.

I don't care if he wants to thank the ghost of his childhood pet Sparky, dude figured out how to come back from an addiction that 95% of people never recover from and be arguably the best hitter on the planet again. Whatever belief got him there deserves some credit.

You can believe in God or not, but if his faith got him to turn his life around its obviously not the worst thing in the world.

They need to just go to total home runs, with every homer carrying over to the finals. It doesn't matter when you hit them, it should be who hit the most in the event who wins..

Morneau might have the trophy but we all know who was the real home run king this night. Doesn't matter if the scores are lower and there isn't a huge discrepancy in the number of bombs hit, either. Tonight just exposed the format for all to see.

I think all this whining about the set-up is ridiculous. It is what it is. The players know they don't need to hit 28 HR in the first round so why do it? Might as well just give all 8 guys 30 outs and just see who can hit the most.

If a team went 162-0 in the regular season and lost in the playoffs would that be unfair?

His parents? family? friends? everyone that supported and helped him get back on his feet after years of drug abuse? Nope, that mystical creature Jesus Christ.

Before someone gets on me for this, let me stress the ;-7 on this. All in good fun/humor. ;-)

i think he feels he has an obligation to try to "spread the word" when he has the pedastal to do so.

if you read the long articles with real conversations with the guy, he gives plenty of credit to his friends/family.
