    Hamilton tearing it up

    Just saw this on the Rangers site....

    Hamilton sizzles in Rangers' win
    Outfielder reaches base for 10th consecutive plate appearance

    By Dick Kaegel / MLB.com


    Josh Hamilton went 2-for-2 and has reached base in 10 consecutive plate appearances, spanning nine hits and one walk. He's batting .607 (17-for-28).

    Man, that guy would really solve our center fielder dillema!
    Witty signature.

    Hamilton was the ONLY reason I was interested in the Reds last season...besides I am addicted to them...It was so fun keeping up with him. I just hope Volquez is as good as he has been in the Spring.

    I remember one time going out to the mound to talk with Bob Gibson. He told me to get back behind the batter, that the only thing I knew about pitching was that it was hard to hit.

    This trade could make or break Krivsky's legacy whether he's here or not.

    I miss Hamilton, a lot, and I wish him the best of luck with the Rangers (I hope he wins multiple MVPs) but I still do that trade over if given the chance. Volquez has an electric arm and the Reds need a stud pitcher more than they need a stud bat. JMO.

    It's one of the rare trades that will end up helping both teams, IMO.

    I hope that's the case, that'd be great!

    I hope so. I think Wayne made a good trade for the team. But one of the toughest things about trades is that if they don't work out, many don't remember that it looked good at the time of the deal.

    If this blows up, WK will look atrocious.

    I wouldn't make too much of this. It's a very tiny sample size and it's spring training. If he's putting up amazing numbers by the end of this upcoming season (or even by the break), then the discussion changes. Volquez has looked strong in ST. I wish Josh well, but it's too early to get worked up about anything.

    That's what everyone said last year during ST. Obviously no one thinks he's going to hit .600 for the season, but I have no doubt that if he stays healthy he'll have a very solid season. All that said I still don't have a problem with the trade. I hated to see him go, but the Reds need high powered arms and they weren't likely to get one without giving up something valuable.

    I wish him well.

    I'd still do the trade.

    So when Hamilton wins the MVP in the AL, then Volquez wins the Cy Young in the NL?

    Re: Hamilton tearing it up

    Think of it this way: without Volquez the Reds rotation would look dire with the stinkers Affeldt and Belisle have been serving up. Looking at a rotation with Volquez makes me feel Ok about the starters, something I can't remember feeling about a Reds team.
