Hamilton is batting .402 and already has 18 home runs through 35 games, which ties the MLB record. He is leading the MLB in batting average, home runs, and RBI's. Do you believe he will break the regular season mark in home runs? Is he on his way to a triple crown?
Here's on his way to a new contract! Hamilton is in his contract year and has come out of the blocks quickly. Texas are getting more national TV times thanks to their last 2 seasons and his audience is getting bigger as a result for good reasons not bad. I think as long as he stays injury free, he has a chance but it is too early to say whether the triple crown is in his reach yet.
That is a concern. He gets hurt a lot, but if he stays healthy, he has a great shot. He usually plays better during the middle and end of the season. With such a fast start, we may see some new records.
