    Josh Hamilton

    One word "WOW". Blasted one over the batting eye, I think he should have an escort to and from home because if he stays clean I believe he makes a HUGE impact.

    Very, very pumped about JH being in the organization.

    I'm very excited about the HR today myself but let's keep everything in perspective. He still has a long way to go, even longer to be a solid contributing member of the team.

    I'll be pulling for him every step of the way and it's going to be a fun ride watching him develop but the climb is still long and steep.

    He's 2 steps ahead of Denorfia after today's game. Granted, there is a long, long way to go.

    Re: Josh Hamilton

    I sure do hope that all the signs right now are of what is to come....because that could make for a very exciting and a very interesting season....interesting because it would force the move of Junior even faster to the RF side of the OF....Question....if Hamilton works out and gets the job by say season's end and we end ridding ourselves of both Denorfia and Freel by season's end as well and Griffey is in RF. Say when Bruce and both Votto are ready, does that mean either Junior is done here is in Cincy, does he move to a platoon role, does he move to a different team to play OF/1B/DH, retirement???? Quite the quandry if that does pan out, eh?

    Regardless, I was glad to hear bout this blast!!!!

    Do you think there is the possibility that Hamilton could earn a starting spot in the OF ahead of Denorfia and possibly even Freel? What do you think it would take out of 'Muscles' (yes, that is my nickname for him, either that or 'Tattoo' but I like 'Muscles' mucho better!!!) to get him spot?

    This from C. Trent's blog. Hamilton called his shot today.

    http://frontier.cincinnati.com/blogs/spring/

    Josh Hamilton's last home run? 2002. He hit 9 in 2002 before having season-ending surgery on July 18 of that year.

    Add to that -- he called it.

    Hamilton and David Ross were talking before that at-bat. Ross was counting all the homers that had been hit already during the game. Hamilton then said, "You forgot one." After Ross looked at him, Hamilton continued, "The one I'm going to hit."

    And did he ever.

    With all that Hamilton has been through, you could just see the excitement on his face and how much being out here -- forget the home run -- meant to him.

    We've been debating this since the beginning of spring training. At first I was in the minority that I thought they'd keep him. I don't think I am anymore. I'd even put money on it. I'll be shocked if he isn't a Red in 2008.

    Denorfia, yes.
    Freel, no.

    Narron has said that Hamilton and Denorfia are among those competing for the 5th OF spot.

    I'm not so sure Hamilton is Deno's competition. If you take Hamilton out of the mix, you could go with that 12th pitcher or the 3rd catcher.
