08:17 AM ET 05.09 | In a world with no doubt about his talent, questions remain with Josh Hamilton, such as how much is he worth. He hit four home runs only because of a little top-spin on that double -- and because he didn't come to the plate again. He has five home runs and 10 RBI -- on just 10 swings -- over his last 10 innings. Albert Pujols doesn't have 10 RBI this season -- and he got $240 million. Albert Pujols, as good and as great a career as he has had, doesn't have Josh Hamilton's talent. ... On nights like this, the Rangers absolutely love him too. Who wouldn't? "That's the most incredible individual performance I've ever seen," said [Michael Young], who has played in nearly 1,700 major-league games.

Stay straight, stay healthy and the price goes up. He's certainly a bargain compared to that guy in CA with his ONE homer so far.

Hamilton had more total bases last night than Pujols had in his last 20 games.

Depends on if he play a full season. A lot if he cannot, a whole lot if can.

The O's are tied for first, the Rangers are in town, and the temp is in the high 60's, and they only draw 11,000 fans to witness some MLB history? Pathetic...

Hamilton is the closest thing to the Natural in the game today.

I hope he doesn't sign with the Yankees. NY or Boston would probably not be good cities for a guy trying to stay clean and sober. Texas is a good fit as they tend to be less fanatical there.

With Hamilton, you don't really want a full season. He's not capable. You want 130-145 games from him. If you get that, you are golden.

agreed...would like to see the rangers sign him, and i think ryan has every intention of trying to keep him.
