In Game 1 of the Rangers' double-header in Detroit on Saturday, Hamilton hit another home run. He has six homers this season. Of course, he followed that with an 0-for-5, 4 K stinker in Game 2.
Here are Hamilton's stats so far in 2012:
15 games, 64 at bats, 25 hits, 3 doubles, 6 HR, 15 RBI, .391 BA
Here are Hamilton's projected stats for the season:
162 games, 691 at bats, 270 hits, 32 doubles, 65 HR, 162 RBI, .391 BA
As you can see, Hamilton just needs to keep this up for another five-plus months and he should have the long-term contract both he and the union desires.
