Josh Hamilton sucks. Not in the baseball sense mind you. He is the reigning MVP and he deserved to win the award. He’s a great player he sucks as a person. Hamilton wants you to believe he is a great guy, a great husband, a great teammate but I’m not buying it. Maybe he is a nice guy. I don’t know because I have never met him. Is he the best husband? Well obviously not. But hey, he is a professional athlete and there is a lot of temptation out there. What I do know is that he is a shitty teammate.
Oh, the Junior Circuit. I’m doing my best not to be biased but I don’t care for A.L. baseball, hate most of the teams and don’t generally watch. I’m qualified to pick an A.L MVP like Cordell Walker is a peaceful negotiator. However, I’m going to do it anyways because, like David Eckstein, I do my damndest even if I’m completely unqualified. Josh Hamilton won the award last year absolutely tearing the cover off the ball despite injuries and jumping on and off the wagon like a kid playing Oregon Trail. Actually I think he was sober all of last year, but that picture is just too good. I think he has a lineup around him that will give him a serious chance at repeating, however there are numerous other candidates with a real chance at winning, and I’m not sure the Rangers will get the wins they piled up last year to support his bid. Thus further discussion is necessary.
Thank the ghost of Nate Dogg baseball season is almost here. With the start of the season we will be putting out some predictions about what we believe will happen in the coming season. We generally have little to no basis for our predictions other than our Frank Drebin like poor instincts and Darwin Award-like intelligence. Three dead people references in one paragraph! Anyways, we will make the predictions starting with the MVP races, followed by Cy Young, Breakout players, guy you will hate by the end of the year, division winners, and World Series Champs. Hopefully we can spark some conversation, or argument. If not, well then we’re geniuses and got it all right.
