We don’t have much Intel on this Dallas area bro, but what we do know is that he appears to have the best Josh Hamilton Halloween costume of 2012. Hell, he might even have the best MLB related costume of the year. Notice the stroller to the left of Dallas bro. Trick-r-treating is supposed to be the kid’s time to shine. That adorable pumpkin, crayon or princess costume that the wife slaved over for hours is supposed to be the attention grabber. Not in this neighborhood. Not on Dallas bro’s watch. Every doorbell he rang, he stole the show.
Thanks to @ronniefauss for snapping the picture. With a sign reading, “Blind Free Agent: May Play for $150 Million”, this guy is just cementing the concerns of Rangers fans all over Texas. Will he stay? If so, will he be worth the massive contract?
Hamilton didn’t seem thrilled with how fans were treating him in Texas towards the end of the year. He had a few choice quotes that put things into perspective:
Personally, myself, it never would matter how high I was — if I went to a sporting event, I would never boo somebody or I would never yell obscenities at somebody. That’s just me.
If they don’t receive you in a town, shake the dust off your feet and move to the next.
Either way, the costume is one of the best we’ve seen in 2012. We also appreciate the fact that the costume is paying homage to an athlete who rocked one of the top costumes of 2011. Don’t remember? Check out the spot-on Josh Hamilton-Buzz Lightyear costume below.

Happy Halloween! Alright, now that that is out of the way...I'm a sucker for stuff like this. Especially when you include eye black and tattoos.And, much like Lil' Cutch...the Texas Rangers All-Star even re-tweeted the picture to his followers. Pretty sweet.

Alright, the hotstove is starting and it's just as expected.
According to CBS Sports' Danny Knobler, the Atlanta Braves are "intrigued" by Texas Rangers' Josh Hamilton. Hamilton is suspected to go into free agency this offseason and the first fish seems to be biting. With Chipper Jones' retirement and Michael Bourn most likely to sign with another team...
In the aftermath of "The Drop" in Oakland and subsequent 0-for-4 performance in the AL wild-card game, it was hard to find anyone who wanted to re-sign Josh Hamilton. Never mind that he played an enormous role in back-to-back trips to the World Series and won an AL MVP award for the Rangers.

Josh Hamilton and the Texas Rangers are inching closer to divorce. As expected, Texas has made a qualifying offer to Hamilton. However, the sides are about $4.5 million apart, and it's not likely that the Rangers will close the gap.

The Texas Rangers have made a $13.3 million qualifying offer to Josh Hamilton, ensuring them draft-pick compensation if the slugger signs with another team.
General manager Jon Daniels said Friday that the team isn't making the same offer to Mike Napoli, though there is mutual interest of the catcher returning to the Rangers. Napoli made $9.4 million this season.
After their late-season collapse and early exit in the Wild Card round, big changes could be in store for the Rangers, including the possible, if not likely, departure of Josh Hamilton. They definitely won't take their disappointing season lying down though and figure to be extremely active on the free agency and trade market.
Before Texas can start rebuilding themselves...
The Texas Rangers have made a $13.3 million qualifying offer to outfielder Josh Hamilton, but they did not make a qualifying offer to catcher Mike Napoli, MLB.com reported Friday. The qualifying offer to Hamilton was expected, because it allows the team to receive compensation with draft picks if Hamilton turns down the offer to become a free agent and winds up signing with another...
