Josh Hamilton - The Greatest Player in MLB History - To Skip Homerun Derby

Wednesday, July 8, 2009

Josh Hamilton, who is undoubtedly the greatest player in MLB history, will fore go this year's Home Run Derby in St. Louis. His 28 home runs during last year's derby clearly set him apart from the top players in league history, making him the best player ever to put on a baseball uniform.

"Last year's Home Run Derby was something else, wasn't it? I mean how many guys can hit TWENTY EIGHT home runs in a batting practice type setting?!? He is clearly the best baseball player to ever set foot on a major league field," said Rangers manager Ron Washington, whose team is currently tied for first with the Angels. "We are so glad to have a player of his caliber on our team. It is unfortunate that the Home Run Derby will be hurt by his absence."

This year Hamilton, despite injuries, has lit up baseball with a sizzling .263 average, 6 home runs and 24 runs batted in. Commissioner Bud Selig is ecstatic that Major League Baseball can build its entire marketing campaign around a player such as Hamilton. "It's numbers like his that bring fans to the ballpark. We are disappointed that Mr. Hamilton will not be suited up for the Home Run Derby showcase, but we love him anyway. MLB is sure to waive the 5 year waiting period when it comes time for Josh Hamilton to go on the Hall of Fame ballot."

That's funny. I love how the media fell in love with him for a good night of BP.

Hamilton is a good guy and good ballplayer. It shows the lack of class some jealous types have.

You know the type who wish they were jocks in high school so now sit behind they keyboard reaching across their beer bellies trashing players who at least give the game all they've got.

I think this post is making fun of the media...not Hamilton. (and satire is tongue in cheek, not serious) It's great what Josh Hamilton was able to come back from and turn himself into a good ballplayer.
