    .....Hamilton going to Sarasota early!

    The Enquirer says that Hamilton is going down to Florida the end of January. Seems he can't wait to get started. Jerry's been working with him, throwing BP and such. It's good to see a young player anxious to get started. Brings to mind a young rookie pitcher, who in 1990, also went down early and started the season like a house afire. We could use a little more of that magic.

    I think the kid knows it is his last shot, if he fails with the Reds his career will more than likely be over.

    This could be a good thing. If the kid is willing to fight to stay in the game, this could be a passion this team needs.

    If there's any player in baseball that will be a good influence on him, Junior is the guy. A season on the roster with Junior will be good. Hopefully he takes after him and not Dunn...
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Or maybe he can show him how to be one of the best players ever to put on a pair of cletes.....

    Seriously, the cheap shots at Griffey for getting hurt get real old sometimes around here.

    I wouldn't mind him taking after either Griffey or Dunn.

    Sure thing 1st ballot HOF or emerging star with a solid start to a career. It's a win win situation for Josh Hamilton.

    Yeah, I am sure that Griffey enjoys being hurt all the time. I am also sure that is why he came back from a hamstring injury that no one had really ever come back from before with a few screws holding it onto his leg....

    If it were up to him, I bet he would play every day at 100% health, but that isnt the case. Its not his fault....you come off like he wants to be hurt all the time.

    When he has played, he has performed (outside of last year). Look at the supporting cast if you want to throw the blame at anyone. But you keep being a negative nancy and feel free to lay the blame on one player rather than an entire 25 man roster who until last year hasnt had more than 1 decent pitcher on the team in a single season since 1999.

    Half the season with a toe injury? That is news to me. Please explain how the man missed half the season with a toe injury. I try to follow these things, but sometimes I miss certain details. Maybe I missed this one.

    Griffey didnt miss half a season with a toe injury, he missed like 3 weeks.

    That is what I thought... as I am pretty detailed. I thought it was 22 of the last 24 games to be exact. However, someone seems to think Griffey missed half of the season due to his injured toe. I thought the person could shed some wisdom with the comment that this person made. I'll wait and see if the wisdom will shed some light on either the injury or the comment that was made. I doubt the wisdom will bring any light to the toe injury, but might shed some light on the comment itself. Imagine that.

    Pretty good feat, missing half the season, while playing 2/3 of the season. Fuzzy math at work maybe?
