After putting up a historic 4 HR night, we can now argue that Josh Hamilton is the best player in baseball, at least offensively.

Not only the power... but batting over .400 this year? .315 for his career? I'll bite. Josh Hamilton is the best player in baseball.

I would easily say so, his performance at the old Yankee Stadium with 28 1st round home runs just shows the type of power he has... I just find it hard to believe that the most home runs he has hit in a season is 32, atleast he will break that record this year... and like you said his batting average is just plain ridiculous. The main reason why he doesn't get walked too much is because he has Beltre hitting right behind him who is no slouch either, really got no choice but to try to pitch to hamilton

1. Hamilton

2. Kemp

Overall great players and are on another planet right now.  No one is in their class right now.

Josh Hamilton could be this month's/year's best batter.  But the career best batter (actively) is Jeter.  He's close to .400 right now.  I will always have him hit at crunch time. 

Just like I would always make sure Kobe takes the last shot.

He always finds a way to get hurt. He'll hit 30 again and be done.

I hope you are joking.

Jeter isn't even top 20 best career hitters in the game today. Get off his nutsack. He has started out this year on a tear but that does not make him the best career hitter in the league.

Good to hear everyones opinion, but either way last nights performance was a historical one and no average player is capable of achieving 4 HR in one ball game
