On the one hand, Josh Hamilton‘s enthusiasm for swinging — documented in some depth by FanGraphs managing editor Dave Cameron earlier this season — has very likely hurt his ability to produce at a high level offensively. On the other, it allows one to make amusing constellations from the pitches at which Hamilton has swung.
Here, now, we see another entry in what may or may not become an ongoing series — in this case, from Hamilton’s May 22nd game against the Mariners (box). The constellation here bears more than a passing resemblance to a delicious prime rib, such as one might order at a Princeton eating club — or, at least, such as a cartoon character might order in a cartoon version of a Princeton eating club.
