Wow - holy crap - 7 home runs in three games! Batting .407 on May 11th. With very sizable leads in all three Triple Crown categories. En fuego!

Hamilton very much reminiscent of George Brett back in the day. As with Brett, Hamilton at present has teams talking of simply walking him each at bat as best option. Teams did this with Brett, can remember Barry Bonds also who was walked even with bases loaded. What is different about Hamilton though is the current Texas lineup so talented walking him would net in many more big innings.
No matter who your team of choice is, most special to see players such as Hamilton play the game at such a level.
