  1. Amen, brother.

  2. Glad to see him do well. Keep it up, Josh!!!

  3. Here’s hoping he can continue to play well and most of all continue to lead a happy and clean life.

    Does anyone know how rule 5 works with respect to free agency/arbiration? Does Hamilton have to go through the typical six years of MLB to become a free agent?

  4. As far as I know, rule V doesn’t impact/alter the free agency rules. Free agency is typically based on Major League service time.

  5. If Hamilton sticks in the majors, I think he’ll qualify as a “super-two” and be eligible for arbitration after the 2008 season.

    But that’s getting way, way, way ahead of ourselves.

  6. You’re right DA, it is getting ahead. I just didn’t want to have to worry seeing him in pinstripes next year or something. (Which is where he would end up if Swindler still owned the team)

  7. Cool.

    Remember that TLC program that no one noticed until after it had aired in late March, “A Home Run for Trademark”? (featuring Josh Hamilton last year when he was still banned from baseball, working construction.) According to my tv listings it is scheduled to air again on April 24 at 8pm.

    This competes directly with the Reds game in St. Louis, but set your Tivo if you just can’t get enough of Josh Hamilton…or, it also runs at 1am.
