There is no player in baseball today that has the kind of story that Los Angeles Angels outfielder Josh Hamilton has. He has overcome more demons than the Winchester boys on Supernatural (that's a lot if you don't watch the show).
However, last season it appeared that his attempts to overcome one more demon was getting the better of him professionally. It now appears that he may have given up trying to beat it since his slump appears to continued with the Angels.
I'm talking about his chewing tobacco habit. During his last season with the Rangers he tried to quit the addictive habit, and had one of the most infamous slumps in recent history. He even had to miss three games do to blurred vision due to withdrawal symptoms.
The slump led to him being thrashed by the fans and media in Texas and his subsequent departure from the Lone Star State. Fans in Texas certainly didn't mind too much when his slumping ways appeared to continue with the Angels.
