    The Throw

    Anyone see it, it was a thing of beauty. Hamilton grabs the ball off the wall and throws a no-hop screaming beebee to second and catchs the runner sliding.

    I was in awe. Amazing. Reminds me of some of Vladimirs highlight throws. I was incredible how quick he came up with the ball and turned and fired and freaking GPS guided laser to second.

    glad I stayed in my appartment sick today. This was the first I've been able to watch Hamilton, and I came away pretty impressed. Should definitly be our 4th outfielder until proven otherwise

    The Reds second baseman looked like he had given up on it and was just suspecting a late throw to the base, when all of a sudden the ball was upon him. It was an impressive throw.

    Trent was impressed.

    Hamilton went 1-for-3, sending his average down to .400. But he got his SportsCenter highlight -- an absolute bullet from right to get a runner at second in the ninth. Since the Reds were playing the Red Sox, we know the game will get a highlight. Maybe Hamilton will make it. -- CTR

    I think he was trying to deke the runner a little. The guy may have been safe too. Very close play, but a sick throw.

    I thought that as well until they showed it from another angle, it was a exellent tag and he was out by a about a foot.

    I think FSN is replaying the game this evening.... Hamilton also faces Dice-K...

    7pm.... I propose we start a second game thread....

    Re: The Throw

    It helped that the hitter was Alberto Castillo, a slow-footed, banjo-hitting backup catcher. But that throw was a laser beam no matter how you slice it.

    I wonder if ESPN will be interested, though. There wasn't any diving involved, and that's what they care about.

    That was a tremendous throw, funny thing was I had just told my friends, who didn't know anything about him, how much arm strength he has. Seems like the more I brag on the guy, he one ups my expectations, I really hope he keeps it up
