Really? Josh Hamilton is Great? I Had No Idea

From Jerry Crasnick's ESPN.com article about Rangers' OF Josh Hamilton:

"I've never seen anyone as gifted as him," Texas second baseman Ian Kinsler says.

"We haven't had any shortage of offensive monsters since I've been here," says Michael Young, ticking off the names of Alex Rodriguez, Alfonso Soriano, Carlos Lee and Juan Gonzalez, among others. "But I think they might all take a backseat to this guy in batting practice. When you're hitting balls to the opposite field off the top of the clubhouse, it's just silly."

Edinson Volquez had better be Pedro Martinez + Greg Maddux + Henry Rowengartner or I'm cracking skulls.

I'm depressed.
