A Triple Crown Threat?




Josh Hamilton of the Texas Rangers has been putting up unbelievable numbers and his recent performance has been historic, hitting nine home runs in seven games. Yes, he averaged over one home run a game for a week’s worth of games. Oh by the way, that does include a four home run game – something that has only been done 15 times in baseball history. To put that in perspective, a perfect game has occurred more often (21 times) than a four home run game.

And as the New York Times pointed out, Hamilton has hit more home runs in 34 games than Bonds did in 41 games in Bonds’ record breaking 2001 season. Who knows? It is quite unlikely that Hamilton keeps up this pace, but he also is in the hunt for baseball’s triple crown, currently possessing an impressive .402 average along with 18 HR and 45 RBI (all AL league leading numbers).

It will be fun to see if he can keep putting up these numbers, and as you may guess from my opinion of Barry Bonds, I would be more than happy to see Bonds home run record broken. It’s even better rooting for a guy who has battled and overcome drug and alcohol addiction, knowing that his fame will continue to bring attention to these national issues.
