"Never Confuse A Single Defeat With A Final Defeat."

F. Scott Fitzgerald never met Josh Hamilton, but Hamilton seems to personify his fellow alcoholic's wonderful words.

Hamilton didn't win the Home Run Derby tonight--officially, anyway.

But when you beat the odds--long odds--and over 50,000 people in the House That Ruth Built chant your name as you launch rocket after rocket to the stars?

After you rode the road from Golden Boy to drunk to addict and back?

How can you be anything other than the guy who's finally won?
