re: Nolan Ryan weighs in on Hamilton quitting tobacco


But the last month is by far the most important month and Hamilton has been pretty much non-existant. Napoli carried the team last year after the all-star break. Hamilton only played in 2 games in September 2010. He played in 5 games in 2009.

Hamilton has been fairly non-existant after the all-star break with the Rangers, either by injury or just awful performances.

re: Nolan Ryan weighs in on Hamilton quitting tobacco


I mostly agree with Marle in this thread. Hamilton is an incredible talent and that bat will be missed big time. However, I am slightly more optimistic in the future Rangers lineup if they resign Napoli.

I probably have more faith in Kinsler than most people do though, and I think we will see a little power return next year. Also, I am a huge Napoli fan because he projects elite power (like Pujols elite) when he is healthy, and Napoli can generally do a really good job of getting on base.

I still am pretty shocked how a guy who put up near-MVP numbers is getting shelled by his (former) fanbase. Nolan Ryan impresses me less and less everyday. I know he is a hardass, but not everyone in your clubhouse will be a horse like he was. You have to treat your fragile players carefully. Ryan seems like a bull in a china shop.
