PARADISE VALLEY, Ariz. – Nothing in the front of Josh Hamilton's new spring training home reveals that the 2010 AL MVP, five-time All-Star and Angels' $125 million slugger actually lives there.

A for-sale sign is staked in the lush lawn of this $4 million, Mediterranean-styled, six-bedroom desert estate. No cars are parked in the semicircular driveway. The custom curtains are drawn, giving the place that uninhabited look that would make trick-or-treaters keep moving up the street.

Marcia is a good journalist. I enjoy her articles. She has the ability to "humanize" the athletes she is writing about. It's not only about the wins and losses or making the most money. It's about life.

I was thinking the same thing. I always look forward to reading the articles that have her name as the author.  I like the fact that she seems to seamlessly blend the different dimensions of a player's life (the athletic and personal) without seeming to intrude in their private family life, but at the same time giving fans that added perspective that goes beyond the on-the-field player.
