    That was quite a show.

    I'm going to have to stay up to watch the rest.

    The best part of the story is how he has been clean and sober (he is an alcoholic and an addict), for close to 3 years after being out of baseball for an extended period of time.

    His story is pretty inspiring, kind of a current day Roy Hobbs, (The Natural).

    It was a great show. Unfortunately, he seemed to have blew his load in the first round and ended up losing the derby. But yeah, he is a very inspiring guy.

    In my mind, Hamilton won this thing. Ten or 20 years from now, people will remember the 28 HR in the first round by Hamilton, not that Morneau won.

    Oh, yeah - most definitely. It just would have been nice if he actually got the trophy.

    I personally thought it was awesome!..... Man, after a few years out of baseball, he played for the Reds last year, then they traded him this past off-season....
