Hank the Bank turned 25 today.
Obviously, a tumultuous 25th for him. I'm glad to see that Daniels has been in touch with him throughout this situation, as it has to have been an extremely difficult for Blalock to be dealing with.
And, while I'm disappointed that Josh Beckett won't be coming to Texas, I'm very relieved that Hank Blalock will be coming back in 2006.
Hopefully, this whole thing will serve as motivation for Hank to work even harder this season, face even more breaking balls from lefties in the batting cages, and come back with a breakout year in 2006.
