    Hamilton 5-5 with 2 HRs tonight

    49 RBIs in 43 games. Wow! IF Volquez wasn't doing so well they'd be calling for Krivskey's head - oh. wait!!! Didn't matter!

    Unbelieveable.

    Could be one of the most amazing trade ever!
    And This One Belongs to the REDS!!!

    while i'm happy we have volquez, people outside of redsland have to wonder why we traded hamilton. 49 RBIs and it only mid may! i hope volquez continues to pitch as well as he has or people may start turning on him quick.
    there's nothing like bowling a 300 game! 13 now and retired.

    I'm really happy for Josh and happy the Reds have Volquez. I don't think I've sen a trade where both players were so dominant for their new teams. Volquez ties the record for consecutive 1 ER or less starts and Hammy knocking in about everything Texas puts on the bases.

    I love it that he is having a great season. I can't wait to see the total performance for the year. The guy is an interesting story.

    I have Hamilton AND Volquez on my fantasy team

    As much as I'd love to be seeing him do this in GABP, I like watching Volquez mow down hitters just as much. In a few years this could be a really awesome trade to look back on.

    They might face each other in the first inning of the All Star game at this rate.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Hamilton is amazing; go watch the clips of his great night on mlb.com- his swing right now is so pure- baseball poetry.

    I'll always be a fan of Hammy's, but the Reds still need MORE PITCHING!!

    I picked up both in late rounds - voulquez in last round so I'm right with you.
    I can't help think boy could we have traded Griffey, Free, Hopper or package of other guys and kept both. . It's nice to see both do so well. If both continue this for the year and go on to be studs this will be one of the most interesting deal EVER. Fun to watch though.

    Before Hamilton packed his suitcase to head to Texas, he should have borrowed one of Brandon's old "The Franchise" T-shirts.

    I won't turn on them. The Reds needed pitching and they got it. I supported the deal and will live with it. I had no doubts about Josh;s potential, It will be interesting to see if he stays off the DL.

    Re: Hamilton 5-5 with 2 HRs tonight

    Last year Hamilton had a .922 OPS for us.

    Before last nights game, Hamilton had a .886 OPS for Texas, but he raised it 80 points tp .966.

    He really isn't hitting much better this year than last, but is staying healthy and getting lots of playing time.

    His OPS with runners on base is .931, with runners in scoring position is .929.

    So, his RBI's are really a function of the hitters hitting around him getting on base, which is generally the case.

    He's having a great season, but so is Volquez.

    Texas came calling for Hamilton, it's not like they came looking to move Volquez.

    For those who like stuff like this...Josh's home/road splits are slightly outrageous:

    Home: .414/.747/1.161
    Away: .320/.447/.767

    Though he is having a ridiculous year, his numbers probably wouldn't be the same in Cincy.

    I didn't hear who started the discussions....was that in the Enquirer?

    men on/ 2 outs...he's OPS'ing 1.267 w/ 20 ribeyes in 38 ab's

    He's also OPSing .902 vs. lefties

    (yahoo has his OPS w/ runners on at 1.022?)

    Texas home/road OPS splits:

    2008: .839/.742
    2007: .792/.717
    2006: .803/.765
    2005: .850/.747

    Cincy home/road OPS splits:

    2008: .776/.737
    2007: .793/.751
    2006: .812/.726
    2005: .816/.755

    Take it for what it's worth, but obviously Hamilton has mashed at home and is less than stellar on the road this year.
