This week's, Wait, Yeah! award goes to Joel Sherman, who twote:
Anyone have any idea why Washington has not removed gimpy Hamilton from this game yet
To which the only response is: "Wait, yeah!" At least if you weren't already thinking it, that's the only response. Is there any reason for Hamilton's barking groin to be in center field, chasing down any fly balls hit in his direction? Remember, Hamilton thinks he might have a sports hernia. It's not like he's fighting though a stye.
The Cardinals scored a run in the top of the eighth on an RBI double from Yadier Molina, marking the fifth straight inning with St. Louis scoring at least one run. Apparently, Ron Washington wanted Hamilton to get one more at-bat in case the Rangers mounted a furious eleventy-run comeback, and that outweighed the potential of him aggravating an already-serious injury.
Hamilton grounded out. There was no furious rally.
