SI Sportsman of the Year Nominee

Pable S. Torre of SI.com has the task of writing Josh Hamilton’s nomination for the annual Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year award.

He does an excellent job, and I think Hamilton would be a great choice (and not just because it would score him another SI cover).  I definitely think that Michael Phelps guy is going to be in contention as well.  Hamilton’s Home Run Derby performance was a spectacle to behold.

Its also interesting to note how closely Hamilton’s predictions for the season matched his actual output.  Aside from slightly overestimating his home run totals, he was basically right on.
