Texas Rangers Manager Ron Washington said outfielder Josh Hamilton, who has been bothered by a left groin strain for about six weeks, was far from 100% during the American League Championship Series. And despite three days off before Game 1 of the World Series on Wednesday, the injury appears to have worsened.

Hamilton, the AL’s most valuable player in 2010, winced after taking a swing a couple of times during an 0-for-4 night in Game 1. And he appeared to have trouble pushing off to make a throw from center field.

But he was back in the Texas lineup, batting third and playing left field, for Game 2 against the St. Louis Cardinals on Thursday.

“One game,” Washington said. “He’ll figure it out. I have no doubt about it. He’s come up big for us, and I expect him to do the same.

“At this point of the year we’ve all got nagging injuries. He had one, and he’ll figure out a way to get through it, and we’ll figure out a way to help him get through it. He’s a big part of our lineup.

“I can’t afford to take Hamilton out of my lineup.”

Cardinals Manager Tony La Russa agreed that Hamilton’s presence in the batting order — even with an injury — changes the Texas lineup.

“I just know that he still scares us,” La Russa said.

 He’ll do in a pinch

Allen Craig, whose sixth-inning pinch-hit single drove in the winning run in Game 1, started only 47 games for St. Louis during the regular season. But teammate Lance Berkman said that’s not a true indication of how valuable Craig has been for the Cardinals.

“He’s been getting big hits for us all year long,” Berkman said. “It’s a luxury to have a guy that could hit probably fourth in most teams’ lineup sitting over there waiting for his opportunity.”

Craig appreciated the compliment.

“It means a lot to hear that,” said Craig, who tied for the team lead with seven pinch-hits during the regular season. “I’ve never doubted myself as a player, and I know what I can do. I’ve just tried to make the most of my opportunities and show people what I can do.”

Rotation updates

Washington, who had been undecided about his pitching plans heading home for Game 3, said left-hander Matt Harrison, who went 14-9 with a 3.39 earned-run average in the regular season, will start for the Rangers on Saturday, followed by left-hander Derek Holland (16-5, 3.95) in Game 4 on Sunday.

The Cardinals are expected to use right-handers Kyle Lohse (14-8, 3.39) and Edwin Jackson (12-9, 3.79).

Josh Hamilton was born on May 21st, 1981 according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Josh_Hamilton

May 21st, 1981

5 + 21 +1+9+8+1 = 45 = his life lesson = what he is here to learn = True grit.  Ouch.  That’s gotta hurt.  In pain.

————————————————————————————-

May 21st, 1981

May 21st

5 + 21 +2+0+1+1 = 30 = his personal year (from May 21st, 2011 to may 20th, 2012) = Counting his blessings.  Having a lot to be thankful for.

30 year + 9 (September) = 39 = his personal month (from September 21st, 2011 to October 20th, 2011) = Compliments.  If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

39 month + 20 (20th of the month on Thursday October 20th, 2011) = 59 = his personal day = Everything falls apart.  Personal meltdown.

[Unfortunately, not a good day to be Josh, and the next 4 days don’t look any better for him.]
