Josh Hamilton is chilling in sunny Southern California right now, happy, super rich, and firing shots at his former team and city.
Hamilton was being interviewed on a local CBS Dallas affiliate, when he stated that the Dallas-Fort Worth area “is not a true baseball town, and that Rangers fans are spoiled.”
“They’re supportive,” Hamilton said about the fans, “but they also got a little spoiled at the same time pretty quickly.”
“You think about three to four years ago (before two straight World Series appearances in 2010 and 2011). It’s like, come on man, are you happier there again?”
Hamilton I would assume is still a bit salty from Rangers fans booing him and he’s teams collapse late last season. It’s definitely not going to buy him any cheers when he returns to Texas.

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...
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...

In his final game with Texas, Josh Hamilton was booed by his home crowd after going 0-for-4 in a wild-card round loss to the Orioles. After the comments he made Monday, he can expect the same reaction when he returns to Arlington in a different uniform.

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...
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...
Josh Hamilton is on a new team now, and the Los Angeles Angeles slugger decided this would be a good time to rip on his former Texas Rangers team. Hamilton says the team’s fans aren’t true fans, and that the Dallas-Forth area is not a true baseball town.
“There are true baseball fans in Texas, but it’s not a true baseball town,” said Hamilton, via ESPN Dallas.
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...

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...
The Red Sox’ offseason may have lacked that one big, defining move, but all in all it was a very successful winter in Boston.
There wasn’t a Zack Greinke or Josh Hamilton coming the way of the Sox, but the team did make itself significantly better than 2012. In lieu of high-priced shocker, the Red Sox made a litany of cost-effective moves which shored up key positions that were...
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...
