Josh Hamilton‘s home run drought is finally over. And yes, I write that with tongue firmly planted in cheek.

After Aaron mentioned this morning that Hamilton hadn’t homered in nearly two weeks, the Rangers’ slugger went deep in the bottom of the second inning tonight against the Blue Jays. His solo shot off right-hander Carlos Villanueva landed in the second deck in right field.

It was Hamilton’s first home run since May 12, spanning 11 games and 47 plate appearances. Even with the two-week gap between round-trippers, Hamilton still leads the majors by a wide margin with 19 home runs. After hitting another home run tonight, Adam Dunn currently ranks second in the majors with 15.

    Seems like only yesterday that windbag Jeff Passan was saying Josh Hamilton was better at his job than anybody else is in the world at their job.

      As opposed to blowhard thomas2727, who with statements like this, is implying that Hamilton is an overrated bum.

        Uh not really. Way to make a quantum leap. I think Passan is an overrated bum. But as a Giants fan it was fun to see Hamilton look like an “overrated bum” in the 2010 World Series.
