Josh Hamilton will miss 6-8 weeks with a non-displaced fracture of humerus bone in his right shoulder.

Bad, bad news for one of the game's most talented players. We figured Hamilton would miss time at some point during the season, but this injury could wipe almost two whole months off the calendar. It will be a month before he even swings a bat. Chris Davis will take his place on the active roster while David Murphy will draw most of the starts in left field.

I will have to look for the play on youtube. Apparently Hamilton was criticizing the 3B coach for sending him home.

Didn't look as bad as I thought it would have, but he came down on the arm pretty hard. Not a good thing to happen when you're team is rolling like Texas was/is.

I thought it was a good play to run on. The pitcher never covered home so it was a smart baseball move if you thought Hamilton could outrun the catcher to home. Of course the 3B coach should known Hamilton would shatter like a porcelain doll when thrown to the ground.... :roll:

Same here I thought it was a shot to try and go home, I think what might have got him though was sliding head first instead of feet first

The worst thing about Hamilton's injuries is that with his addictions, he is probably limited to baby aspirin for the pain...

The worst thing about Hamilton's injuries is that they result in only getting half a useful season (you hope) from your 2nd/3rd round pick.

That's what years of heavy drug use will do to the body, breaks down too easily and quickly. I get that head first slides lead to injury at scary high rates, but that specific play should not have broken the arm of a 20 something athlete.

I'd never draft meth head if money were on the line.
