    Wow! Josh Hamilton's throw to first to double up Aaron Miles

    I know it was probably talked about in the game thread last night, but i feel it deserves a thread of its own.

    What about Josh Hamilton's arm on his throw to first to double up Aaron Miles?

    That looked Ichiro-esque. He could have the best arm of any NL outfielder. If Jim Bowden thinks the outfielders that he brought in were 5 tool players, Josh Hamilton is a 10 tool player.

    I marvelled about it in chat for several innings afterward. It was amazing that he was going _away_ from the bag and threw across his body.

    It wasn't a perfect strike but it was good enough to get the runner. Very, very good D.

    We wouldn't've seen that last year.

    Re: Wow!

    2 things really impressed me about that throw.

    1 - his momentum was carrying him towards short which made it a hard throw for a lefty, and
    2 - he almost OVERTHREW Hatteburg.

    This kid is amazing.

    lets also not forget that despite going against his momentum, that throw was ON A ROPE!!!

    What is not to like about this guy?
    L.A. manager Grady Little had a bad feeling about Wednesday's game when he saw Harang and pitching coach Dick Pole walking in after Harang's warmup.

    "I saw two big men," Little said. "Either could have shut us out tonight."

    Hamilton has always had a great outfield arm. This just confirms it.
