Our Natural, done for the year

Josh Hamilton makes his third and final trip to the disabled list this season, this one being the dagger that ends it. It was a season of marvel for our Natural, one in which he hit nearly .300 and 19 homeruns. Over a full season, if he can get past our one concern for him; he can probably surpass 40 homeruns and 120 RBI’s. The sky really is the limit. More than anything this guy really made us start loving the game again for the right reasons. As the Reds wind down this final month, I’m looking forward to the next several seasons with this guy roaming center field for us.

He was a major question mark coming into this season, could he take the biggest step and defeat the demons that so many of us out in the world face; indeed he did it.
