Still on top

Josh Hamilton is phenomenal, no question. He had an amazing April, compiling 32 RBI in the month. Mind boggling.

Amazingly, Josh's incredible performance in April stands second to Juan Gonzalez's April, 1998 numbers. Juan punched out 35 RBI that month, the most in team history.

Juan's bat was incredible as depicted on this 2002 Fleer Genuine Bat's Incredible game used bat card. While a game used of a Rangers' player this is not one of my favorite cards. The base version seems jumbled and confusing. The game used version is worse. The piece of the bat seems to have been thrown on the card as an afterthought; it even covers part of the team name. Nice player, nice numbers, card could be better.
