Josh Hamilton Makes Catch Like He Gives A Damn (Video)
With 162 games, the MLB regular season seems longer than a James Franco movie marathon. Okay, so technically that would be longer, but you get the idea. And as we hit the last weekend of the never-ending season, there's just one playoff spot up for grabs: the second AL wild card spot. Fighting for that spot are the Minnesota Twins (no chance), the LA Angels (my pick) and the Houston Astros (11-16 in September). Going into tonight's Angels-Rangers matchup, the Angels were 0.5 games behind the Astros. So the good news for those of us still watching baseball, tonight's game means something!
So bless you, Josh Hamilton, for doing this:
Wasn't that the same thing Willie Mays did in the '54 World Series?
Okay, a little different, but damn if Hamilton didn't almost throw Pujols out at home! Let's see if that one foot of baseline real estate becomes enough to knock the Astros out of the playoffs this weekend.
