Scott Diamond of the Twins Suspended 6 Games

and fined an undisclosed amount for throwing at Josh Hamilton, “near the head area.” The throw was in the 3rd inning of yesterday’s game and apparently in retribution for Roy Oswalt’s plunking of Joe Mauer.

Josh Hamilton: The Legend Continues

It was the bottom of the 13th, no outs, two men on, and the Rangers were down by two runs. Josh Hamilton came to the plate against Blue Jays reliever Jason Frasor. Frasor had a 4.50 ERA when Hamilton stepped in the batter’s box. A few minutes later and that ERA had climbed to 5.00 as Hamilton crushed his 20th home run of the season, giving the Rangers an 8-7 win.

Hamilton is currently on pace to hit 69 home runs…and earn a heck of a lot of money in a contract season.
