I raised a few eyebrows when I said it on the air the other night, but it's true. Josh Hamilton is the best player in the American League. He may be the best player in all of baseball. I know he went through a bit of a slump, but he's back. A walk-off home run against the division rival Angels last week was just the trick. Anyone that saw the performance he put on in New York at the home run derby would be hard pressed to argue. This guy is a star. He won over the New York crowd in less than an hour. Some guys spend a career there without having their name chanted. You can have A-Rod, Ortiz, Ramirez, Jeter, etc. I'll take Hamilton.
