2012 Season Stats
High-A: 24.0 IP, 1-1,8 SV, 1.88 ERA, 10 H, 14 BB, 0 HR, 31 SO, 0.83 GO/AO, 2.74 FIP, .192 BABIP

Fastball – A-. He has two fastballs. The first is a hard sinking fastball sitting between 94-96 mph. This pitch generates a lot of ground balls and is his bread and butter against right-handed batters. The second pitch sits at 91-93 mph with a floating/tailing action that moves away on lefties. Both have the same arm angle and release, I’m assuming the only difference is his grip.
Off-speed Pitches – A-. Tillman, along with Wood and Alvarez have the best slid

Josh Hamilton's new team says it won't ban beer from the clubhouse to accommodate him, according to a report in the Los Angeles Times.
The Angels did not institute a beer ban in 2009 after 22-year-old pitcher Nick Adenhart was killed by a drunk driver.
Hard liquor is not allowed in the clubhouse, but the Angels have not made special arrangements with Hamilton, who signed...
As far as insults go, ex-Rangers slugger Josh Hamilton wasn't exactly Don Rickles when he sat down for a one-on-one with CBS11's Gina Miller over the weekend. Asked about the boos he received at the Ballpark in his final days with the club, he basically attributed it to folks who only understood football.
He actually said that Dallas-Fort Worth wasn't "a true baseball...

Plenty of offseason moves for a team that disappointed by not making the playoffs. If they miss again, the payroll might rise to $900 billion.
Signed OF Josh Hamilton
Hamilton leaves the cozy confines of Arlington for the not-so-friendly hitter environs of Anaheim. He'll hit plenty, but shouldn't be your first-round pick based on last year's stats...
I don't want to sound toooo misleading off of that title there, there won't be any "stealing" of jobs by Ernesto Frieri. Although the fact is that Mike Scioscia does happen to prefer Ryan Madson as the Angels full-time closer this season he has not been officially given the job yet. While it's been made clear the Angels want Madson to close for them they do...

The biggest signing in the history of the Angels, Albert Pujols career as a Halo got off to one of the rockiest starts in the history of rocky starts. While he repaired much of the damage by season's end, questions remain as to whether or not Albert's best days are already well behind him.

By all rights, Garret Anderson was a greater baseball player than Tim Salmon.
Salmon beats Anderson by .099 points in OPS, so he was probably the better overall player. But, in the context of Angels history, Anderson played two more seasons in a California/Anaheim/Los Angeles uniform, had 2,529 hits to Salmon’s 1674, had 1,365 RBIs to Salmon’s 1,016 and hit a bases-clearing double...

Josh Hamilton says Texas Rangers fans were spoiled by the team's success over the last few seasons.
Hamilton, who signed a five-year, 125-million deal with the Los Angeles Angels in December, helped the Rangers reach the World Series in 2010 and 2011. During an interview that was aired Sunday on CBS 11 in Dallas, Hamilton revealed why he left the Rangers and joined their American...
Even though the man produced mammoth blasts (upwards of four in one game), drove in runs, and inspired many, fans of the Texas Rangers were slowly getting tired of Josh Hamilton towards the end of the 2012 season as he appeared to mail-in performances both at the plate and in the outfield. And still, Hamilton was the biggest free agent this offseason. And, of course, he jetted-away...
If there was any hope of Josh Hamilton receiving even a lukewarm welcome upon his return to Arlington in April, he just blew it.
Hamilton, in an interview with KTVT, the Dallas-Fort Worth CBS affiliate, Hamilton called Rangers fans spoiled and said the D-FW area is not a true baseball town.
He's right, basically, but he's wrong to say it. Because he's one of the main...
SURPRISE, Ariz. Who cares?
That's what someone tweeted to me in the afternoon Monday in response to Josh Hamilton's comments about baseball atmosphere and fanbase in the Metroplex.
Unfortunately for that person, plenty of people care. And maybe the reason they care is proof of how much the area has become a baseball hotbed.
We won't use the phrase baseball town here...
It is hard for fans to see their favorite players change uniforms. The only thing that can make it worse is when their hero says things that are not nice about their former team.
In an interview on Monday former Texas Ranger Josh Hamilton did not exactly throw Rangers fans under the bus, but he was not very complimentary about the community he played in for the last five seasons...
