How's Hamilton: Looking for a spark
|Tim MacMahon and Joe Trahan debate whether Josh Hamilton leaving the Rangers would be comparable to Tyson Chandler leaving the Mavericks. |
April: .395, 9 HR, 23 RBIs, 17 Ks, 7 BBs, 1.182 OPS
May: .344, 12 HR, 32 RBIS, 22 Ks, 12 BBs, 1.186 OPS
But in June and July, he has not had anything close to that success. Those numbers:
June: .223, 4 HR, 16 RBIs, 35 Ks, 12 BBs, .754 OPS
July: .171, 3 HR, 5 RBIs, 11 Ks, 5 BBs, .661 OPS
Of course, there's still 11 games left in July and time for Hamilton to turn things around. He did have a hit in each of the games in Oakland, including a home run late in Tuesday's game. He was just 2-for-13 at Angel Stadium in the first series between the teams out there, but is 8-for-26 with three homers and six RBIs this season as a whole against the Angels' pitching staff in 2012.
