Well, that answers another question. Josh Hamilton didn't look like himself in the ALDS against Tampa Bay, going 2 for 18 with 1 RBI. It seemed his cracked ribs hadn't healed.
But he sure looked healthy on that swing against CC Sabathia. Three-run shot to right. 3-0 Rangers. And it's CC Sabathia who's having trouble with the strike zone.
Of course, everyone will be asking if the long layoff hindered Sabathia. Nothing the Yankees can do about that, though. The Twins offered no resistance and the series ended almost instantly.
