    Hamilton might be out for the season (Trent)

    Josh Hamilton has a mild strain of the left hamstring and will not take the Reds' roadtrip. It looks like he may be done for the season.
    Looks like a lot of Hopper and Ellison from here on out.

    With most guys I would chalk this stuff up to bad luck, but you certainly have to wonder the toll his past lifestyle took on his body.
    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.

    Me either.

    But he sat out 4 years. He had never went through the grind of advanced professional baseball. Let's see how he does after taking some time off and then preparing for a second season.

    I'd be shocked if he is this injury prone next year.

    It's kind of hard to tell in the games I've watched him in, but doesn't Hamilton have a ripped, Reggie Sanders-esque body? That could be why he's prone to injury.

    IMO, it makes it impossible to pencil him for a starting position next season. Also, for the record, he was frail before his four year hiatus too. This isn't new with him.

    Dependent on what deals get made, he might get first crack at a starting position by default, but the team needs to come up with a quality backup plan in that case. Then again, Hamilton could be one of those deals that get made.

    while alot of that may be true in fairness to josh he hasn't played a full season in many years. i would compare it to a high school basketball player playing his first year of college hitting that freshman wall. in josh's case his body just isn't holding up and he needs to prepare himself for a full season next year. if josh can't keep himself healthy next season than there may be a problem.
    there's nothing like bowling a 300 game! 13 now and retired.

    I think this offseason is going to be a vital one for Hamilton. I'm also concerned about what kind of damage his past actions did to his body, but at the same time I'm actually kind of impressed that Hamilton still managed to tally 340 plate appearances. Relative to other professional ballplayers, Hamilton entered spring training not really in baseball shape since he didn't have the entire offseason to prepare like a regular player would.

    If Hamilton can get himself on a great training regime this offseason while also getting healthy, it would be phenomenal. I'll be curious to hear if Dunn and Bruce get together again this offseason like they did last winter, and if that happens, perhaps they could have Hamilton join them. Whatever Dunn and Bruce did together last winter, something clicked and worked considering the types of seasons each of them produced.

    And it puts such a fine point on how important a guy like Dunn is to this franchise--pencil Adam in--every single day.

    Having Hopper in the lineup as a replacement isn't the worst alternative...but please no Jason Ellison.

    From Fay:

    Josh Hamilton has a mild right hamstring strain. At this point, that probably ends his season. He's not going on the 11-day road trip. Asked if Hamilton would play again this season, Pete Mackanin said: "It's hard to guess. I wouldn't think so."

    Alex Gonzalez has a bone bruise of the left knee. It's unrelated to ball he took off the shin Sunday. He is going on the trip. He's listed as day-to-day.

    Norris Hopper will get the bulk of the time in center. Mackanin said he may take a look at Buck Coats.

    You would think this would be an opportune time to give him a look.

    ...as well as seeing what Mr. Buck Coats is all about. Anybody but Ellison. See what anybody with some upside might do.
