Josh Hamilton

It’s not very often we get to witness history in the making but that’s exactly what happened with Josh Hamilton as he jacked four homeruns in a game against Baltimore this week. The feat is only the 16th time in Major League History a player has belted four bombs and is the first time since Carlos Delgado back in 2003 that a player has went deep that many times.

 

 

 

Phoenix Coyotes And LA Kings

la kings phoe getty Wooleys Weekly Winners 5 11 12Who saw this one coming for a Western Conference Final in the NHL? If you say you did, I have a very hard time believing you. In any event, hats off to both franchises for being on the door step to the Stanley Cup Final, which would be the first for Phoenix if they were to advance and the first time since 1993 for the Kings. I know it doesn’t make for good TV ratings to not have a marquee team in the Finals, but it is refreshing every once in a while seeing a Cinderella team make it and win it all. I doubt they will advance past LA, but I’m hoping the Coyotes bring home Stanley.

Drew Smyly

dt0509 10 Wooleys Weekly Winners 5 11 12You want to know the biggest surprise in baseball this season? Well he is here in Detroit and it’s none other than Drew Smyly. Despite just having one win on the season, he leads the American League with a 1.59 ERA, 34 strikeouts and just 10 walks. Also prior to this season he hadn’t played any higher than Double-A ball and barely made the team after Spring Training. Talk about someone exceeding expectations.
