The Howard- Playoff Edition
Josh Hamilton, he of past addictions and ginger ale celebrations, committed The Howard last night in Arlington. It's only the second ever playoff Howard since the stat's inception into the mainstream media (aka- basically just this blog and a few other places), as last year golden boy Derek Jeter broke the cherry. The tattooed, born again Christian Hamilton knocked in 3 runs, stole a base, drew a walk, struck out twice, hit a bomb, and committed an error. Quite the effort, but it came in a disheartening loss to Jeter's Yankees, as manager Ron Washington mishandled the bullpen to epic proportions which lead to a huge series opening failure. Hey Washington- lay off the nose candy and help our Canadian deafy snorting outfielder kick the habit too. Freakin' Tyson Gillies ain't a prospect, the only prospect he has is of serving a jail sentence and possibly doing a hilarious Rick James impersonation. Anyway, I'm rambling, game tonight, Halladay/Lincecum. Go Phils!
